Business & Org Toolkit — Religious and Faith-based Organizations

Montez O. Jones

"Our biggest challenge is implementing worship practices and community engagement that promote physical health without diminishing spiritual health, such as choir singing, greeting without touch, holding hymn books, passing the offering plate, sharing meals with the community, children playing and seating."

— Montez O. Jones, Pastor
Judah Ministries Church of God
