Publisher's Description

The church is not a business—but it often has to conduct aspects of business. When a church needs a lawyer, it hires a lawyer. When it needs a plumber, it hires a plumber. But when it comes to making business decisions, it typically doesn’t consult someone with business expertise. Instead, it convenes well-meaning but often inexperienced volunteers to form a committee that takes a month to make a decision about which color to paint the nursery. Conducting business this way is a vision killer that drains the passion out of creative, relational pastors and ministry leaders.
Bottom line: The modern church is being poorly managed but does not know it. The level of inefficiency and waste in today’s churches is staggering.
Minding His Business was written specifically for churches to convey basic business wisdom, management principles, and the best business practices. Unlike intimidating business textbooks, it includes forty short vignettes designed to be read like a daily devotional. Each chapter deals with everyday challenges and offers real-life examples—derived from the author’s more than thirty years of experience—that show how to (and sometimes how not to) handle each situation of conducting business for the church.
Are you minding His business?

Editorial Reviews

The way a church conducts its business is a testimony to a world that is always watching. Church business needs to be done with professionalism and transparency. In short, easy-to-understand chapters, Minding His Business shows us the way to conduct church business in a way that honors God.
—Dan Busby, President, Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability

Minding His Business is one of the best books on managing ministry available today. It is practical and insightful, and it reflects years of real ministry experience. Don Corder keeps it real with a no-nonsense approach to getting things done in a ministry environment.
—Dr. Jeff Greenway, Former President, Asbury Theological Seminary

I have known Don Corder for over a decade. He is as wise as he is brilliant—one of the most effective leaders I’ve met in over thirty years. Minding His Business is a gift to the kingdom of God and a must-read for any pastor or ministry leader.
—Jon Laria, Chief Financial Officer, OneHope

If talk and good intentions were money, the church would be a bank. Spreading the gospel is a job to be done, not discussed with good intentions. Minding His Business cuts through the clutter and clearly
describes how churches can be set free from a culture of decline to make the difference God desires them to make in the world.
—Alan Didio, Lead pastor, Encounter Ministries, Red Cross, North Carolina

Don Corderis one of the smartest people I know. His ability to see through the urgent to what is important, and then to accomplish both, is inspiring. He is the best manager of ministry I’ve ever met. In Minding His Business, we are given the unique privilege of looking through the eyes of a true master to see ministry managed with wisdom and expertise.
—Brad White, President, Iak Donors, Palm Coast, Florida

Don Corder is the real deal. In Minding His Business, he speaks truth to most pastors’ pain. This book helped me and my ministry in so many ways. It is required reading for every leader in my church.
—Matt Young, Lead pastor, LifeChurch,Amelia, Ohio

The wisdom on these pages is invaluable. Every pastor, church planter, and staff leader should put this on his must-read list.
—Ronnie Harrison, Pastor, The Kingdom Center Church, Louisville, Kentucky

Yes! Minding His Business should be required reading for pastors everywhere. Young or old, pastors will find truth on these pages that will make their ministries easier to manage and more effective.
—Matt Wright, Senior pastor, Water’s Edge Church, Mason, Ohio
