Why Networking is Important to Your Ministry

As in any business or career, ministry networking is an essential part of advancing who you are, as well as your ministry agenda.

In our rapidly changing times, the influence of advanced technologies and new media, you’ll have to connect with others, be vocal about your interests, and build relationships with people. This can only be done through networking.

Networking is a powerful tool not only in industry, but in ministry as well. 

Here are four reasons why: 
  1. Networking gives you access to a diverse group of people with a set of skills and resources that can help you and your ministry succeed. 

  2. Being a part of a network gives you an opportunity to help others and their ministries succeed. 

  3. Being a part of a network puts you in a place for opportunities you would not otherwise have. 

  4. Networking fuels creativity. Yes, ministry leaders, we are creatives too

    Ministry could use more creativity, some rethinking, some rearranging of patterns, thoughts and processes that favor positive transformation.

  5. Networking lends access to those with influence, both in your area of ministry as well as others. Their influence can help spread the word about the work you’re doing. 
Finding the right network is not always easy. Who you allow in your inner circle will determine your success. However, you’ll never find it if you’re not searching. 

Find the network that works for you. If you can’t find a network that wants you, or one you want to be a part of, then create your own. 

Success doesn’t happen in a vacuum, and exposure to the right networks can not only ensure your success, but accelerate it as well.
