Coordinators will be setting up the pre-school materials in the morning.

Be sure to read through the lesson and set up anything that a teacher would need to have in order to teach. For example – if a path needs to be made for the kids to jump on, tape the path down for them! This will create a fun visual effect as the kids are walking in.

STAFF LEADERSHIP TALKS

Based on the book “You Win In The Locker Room First” by Jon Gordon and Mike Smith

7 C’s for a healthy culture:

  1. Contagious
  2. Consistent
  3. Communicate
  4. Connect
  5. Commitment
  6. Care 
  7. Culture

CONTAGIOUS:

  • People can feel you from 10ft away
  • Your emotions and feelings affect everyone around you 
  • Leadership is a transfer of purpose, passion, optimism, and belief
  • You can either create positive energy or you can be an energy vampire

BE CONTAGIOUS:

  1. Vision and Mission– We are the most energized when we are contributing to a greater cause. JRNY is building a hospital for the sick, we are a place where broken, lost, addicted, shameful people should feel the most comfortable-and religious, judgmental Christians from other churches should feel the least comfortable. 
  2. With your Belief– Leadership is a transfer of belief (a gift). Optimism is a competitive advantage and when we believe what we are doing has an eternal impact and value, that’s what catches on!
  3. With a Positive Attitude– Never a bad day, only a bad moment. Every moment of the day someone is taking their cues from you! That means someone is always looking to you and following you in everything you do!

TWO BIG NO’S!:

  1. No Energy Vampires– One person can’t make a team BUT one person can break a team. Your energy and attitude is displayed by your body language and your words and you are always being evaluated. 
  2. No Complaining– Complaining is TOXIC! If you’re complaining you’re not leading, if you’re leading, you’re not complaining. 

TRUTH: If you’re not consistent, you’ll lose trust. When you lose trust, you’ll lose your team. 

THINGS TO BE CONSISTENT IN:

  • Demeanor
  • How you dress
  • Attitude
  • Effort
  • Actions
  • Schedule
  • Your philosophy 
  • Wording

1. The key is to be WHO you are no matter WHAT your win-loss record is.
2. Your team must see you stick to your PRINCIPLES and PHILOSOPHY through adversity and challenges.
3. The CHARACTER you posses during the DROUGHT is what your team will remember during the HARVEST.

ASK YOURSELF THIS: WHAT DID I WRECK BECAUSE OF MY INCONSISTENCY?

TWO KILLERS OF CONSISTENCY:
1. MOODINESS

    • When you are moody, people don’t know what to expect. As a result, you lose trust.
    • Don’t change with the wind, be like a deep-rooted tree

2. COMPLACENCY

    • Multiplies like a weed
    • Happens when a team starts to believe prior success will ensure future success.

THREE B’S OF CONSISTENCY:
1. Be consistent in your desire to be great – measure this by your routine and preparation.
2. Be consistently improving fear success not failure.

    • You have to consistently improve if you want to win consistently

3. Be consistently humble and hungry

    • Humble: Don’t think you know it all, see everyone as teachers, be open, don’t let anything get to your head. 
    • Hungry: Are you willing to pay the price for greatness? Be the hardest worker in your job, pursue excellence, love the process

* BE CONSISTENT, NOT COMPLACENT. WE ARE HUNTING THE IMPOSSIBLE.

Communication: When there is a VOID in communication, NEGATIVITY will fill it!

  • The most important thing you can for your team.
  • It’s the foundation of every great relationship
  • It builds TRUST:
    • Trust generates Commitment 
    • Commitment fosters Teamwork
    • Teamwork delivers Results

Greatest Enemies:

  • Busyness and Stress- these activate the reptilian part of your brain
  • Remind yourself that communication and relationship is the most important part!

2 Main Ways To Communicate:

1. Collectively

  •  Share key messages, themes, and principles with your team
  • It’s critical to drive them home- almost to the point of annoying them! 
  • If they sound annoying to you, your just beginning to say it enough!
  • It must be consistent in both spoken word and action! (If you don’t live it, neither will your team)

2. Individually:

  • Get to know your team:
    • Who is struggling?
    • Who needs encouragement?
    • Who needs to be challenged?
  • It’s all about listening
  • Have an open-door policy (we are always available to talk!)
  • Take the temperature of the room- lead by walking around and feeling how everything is going.

CONNECT: Team beats talent when talent isn’t a team! 

  • It doesn’t happen by accident- connection requires intentionality!

Connect > the key to becoming a great team > results – when a coach and team connect with each other, commitment, chemistry, and performance improve.

**The best teams always enjoy being around each other.

HOW TO CREATE A CONNECTED TEAM:

1. Team Building

  • When individuals grow and connect, teams become stronger.
    • do activities
    • read a book/Bible plan together
    • exercises

2. Team Bonding

  • You have to find ways to connect outside of the locker room.
  • When you are truly connected, you will see team members getting together outside of the locker room

When team members connect and build strong relationships, they don’t just work WITH each other, they work FOR each other.

Commitment: It’s not about you! It’s about committing yourself to your team!

  • If you want commitment, it begins with you! 
  • You want to be a pig, not a hen- Hens only give the egg, pigs give their whole body! 

3 Ways To Grow In Commitment:

  1. Lose Your Ego
  • Never blame your team- always take the blame
  • 2 options: teach them to improve or let them go
  • Shout praise in public, whisper criticism in private
  • win/lose TOGETHER! 

2. Feeling is more powerful than Hearing

  • Your team must FEEL your commitment!
  • When we hear from a leader we will learn. When we feel from a leader’s commitment we are transformed.

3. Serve To Be Great

  • Great leaders know their job is to serve their team
  • When you serve, your team grows and so do you!

COMMUNICAITON

  • KD / COORDINATOR: CONTACTING PARENTS DURING EXPERIENCE
    • We will use ClubTexting to contact Parents who may need to attend to their children.
    • Make sure your coordinators are trained on how to login, compose & send the message!
    • It may even be helpful to train a few security teammates to be aware of how to use this process as well!
      • “Hello, your child, _____________, is in need of your assistance. See you soon at the check-in desk in JRNYkids! Thanks, JRNYkids Team”
  • TRAINING NEW TEAMMATE
    • When there is a new teammate scheduled to train, reach out to the trainer and attach THIS document to let them know of the practical steps to take to be an excellent trainer.

PROCESSES

NEW TEAMMATE PROCEDURE: CLEARANCES

  • When a guest joins us for church on Sunday and signs up to serve, the Campus Director reaches out to them via text + email with the link to the Join the Team form.
  • Kids’ Campus Directors will receive their Join the Team form once it is completed and be able to see their upcoming Sundays that they are available to serve. However, Lynn will be the first person to contact them to ensure that we have all of their clearances before getting them onto the schedule.
    • These are the 3 clearances that we need from them:
      • PA State Background Check (we cannot accept a copy that they already have)
      • Child Abuse History Clearance (we can accept a copy that they already have)
      • Affidavit form (they will need to sign one if they have lived in PA for the past 10 consecutive yearsOR FBI Fingerprint (if they have not lived in PA for the past 10 consecutive years – we can accept a copy that they already have)
  • After Lynn has received all of the clearances that she needs from that person, she will email you to let you know that you are able to schedule them. Be sure to refer back to their Join the Team form to see what dates you should schedule them for. If the dates have passed, contact the new teammate and ask them for their next two available Sundays to begin training.

NEW TEAMMATE PROCEDURE: IMPORT INTO PLANNING CENTER

  • Once you receive an email from Lynn letting you know that you’re able to schedule the new teammate, import them into Planning Center so that they receive tutorials on how to use the website/app and so that you are able to schedule them for their first serve dates. Visit HERE to login to Planning Center and begin. Search the new teammate’s name and then click on their name.

NEW TEAMMATE PROCEDURE: ADDING THEIR 1st + 2nd SERVE DATES

  • Once you’ve scheduled the new teammate and they’ve confirmed their dates, be sure to add in their 1st + 2nd serve dates to indicate that the new teammate is officially on the schedule. Visit HERE to login to People and begin. Search their name at the top right and click on it to be taken to their profile

  • After you entered the dates and clicked on “Save”, Lynn will be able to see that the new teammate has been officially scheduled and she will mark their serve team status as complete!

NEW TEAMMATE NOTEBOOK:

  • Whenever someone new joins your team, for their first day of serving you’ll want to write on the inside cover a personal note and/or verse that will encourage them in this new journey. Be sure to give it to the trainer so that when they greet the new teammate they can give them their notebook!

Over the course of the past 10 years, the leadership at Journey began to recognize the path that people take when growing in their walk with Christ & developing in their leadership. The image shown here demonstrates what that looks like & how our church continues to grow: we call it the Cycle of Connection. It’s important to realize that without any one of these areas being strong, our church will suffer.
