Batching is a process that allows you to complete multiple items or process in a single sweep. For instance, filming all the videos for the series that you are doing at one time. There are just a huge amount of things that are great for batching.
Here are a few:
1. Anything pertaining to a teaching/large group series
Write it all, Film it all, Get all the graphics done at one time. It helps you get prepared and creates space to get ready for the next series.
The volunteer processnthat you’ve hopefully worked on for a long time, is something that you should be able to take a lot of people through at one time. In fact, yesterday I had 10 interview scheduled! It was crazy but it allowed me to get them through the process and save me a ton of time and schedule craziness by doing it in one day.
I try to check my email twice a day. I get all of my email done in about 1 hr per day. That may not be the culture where you are, it’s not where I work, but it helps me get my most important work done.
Working in a batch is something that allows you to get more work done faster and helps you really jump ahead in planning. I highly recommend it for your ministry!
