Priority #2 – Give you family preference on your schedule
One of the unique privileges you will have as a church planter is the ability to leverage your schedule for the benefit of your family. You can align your calendar with that of your family and still be able to accomplish all of the important tasks in ministry during the week. Sometimes this means studying at home or bringing your family on a ministry outing. Make a habit of setting vacations, date nights, and other family events on your calendar before finalizing your church calendar. This is a very practical way to communicate to your family that they are the most important people you serve.
