How to be preparing for the Fall during the summer

Summer is a wonderful time of year filled with great opportunities for you personally and your ministry. But as great as it is, it is short and before you know it, the fall will be here before you know it. I know, I know, it is a buzz-kill to be thinking of the fall now but if you don’t you could find yourself seriously behind once August rolls around.

That is why I invited Stan Ronda back on the podcast. Stan shares with us 4 key ways he is preparing for the fall this summer.


  • Share your thoughts! How are you preparing for the fall this summer? Share below or on Twitter using #ymsidekick when you post.

  • The Twitter Advantage – Some churches are giving up on Twitter and that’s a mistake. This platform has unique advantages over other social platforms and can be leveraged to bring people from your community through your church’s front door. Discover how Twitter can be one of the most effective tools in your communications tool box.
