Next level ministry enhancements

Are you ready to take your ministry to the next level? Do you feel stalled out? Do things need to change now? Are you ready to take the plunge?

Then this post is for you. We’ll discuss the key moves needed to take your ministry to the next level…

1. Dress

Forget the dress shirt and take it to the next level with some cool pastor gear.

You will need skinny jeans (obviously), a pair of Chuck Taylors, and possibly a pair of eyeglasses that look like they came from the late 1990s. Trust me, these glasses are back in style. In some cases, they might make you look like a serial killer but I say it’s worth the risk.

2. Technology

Forget the iPad – lots of preachers use those.

Take it to the next level by preaching your entire message off of your smartwatch or fitness tracker. You will also need a very tight “v” neck tee shirt that shows off your killer biceps of course. There is nothing better than being “relevant” while showing you are in awesome shape.

3. Hydrate

Are you taking a bottle of water with you to the stage when you preach?

That’s so weak.

Take it to the next level with a protein shake in a tumbler. Don’t forget to shake that bad boy up during your message when you really want to emphasize a key point. You might also think about keeping a little stash of beef jerky on stage as well. You can grab that quickly and snap off a piece in your mouth when you are really trying to drive that final point home. Oh-Yeah!!!

4. Extreme sports

A cool preacher has at least one tattoo, right? (The coolest preachers I know will usually have one full sleeve.) Let’s be honest, a tattoo alone isn’t enough to up your cool factor.

You are going to have to take it to the next level by finding an extreme sport to participate in and constantly talk about in your messages. Skydiving and bungee jumping are a little tame … been there! Done that! I mean something really extreme!

Something like joining an underground fight club, shooting stuff from helicopters (yes, you can do that if you have the cash), or hunting bears with non-lethal weapons like a taser or stun gun. Be sure to bring your camera, it’s going to be time to rock that social media!
