One Bishop’s Example

Here is a flowchart I created for an upcoming article I wrote Leading Saints (I’ll link to that article after it’s published), illustrating one example of how a bishop might administer welfare.

I have never served as a bishop–this came from working as a bishop’s counselor and observing his philosophies, principles, and practices. This is NOT meant to be a one-size-fits-all solution; it is simply my mapping of ONE bishop’s approach. We did not use a called self-reliance or employment specialist, etc., so that is not represented in this chart. Your ward may have a great person serving in that capacity–if so, great! I would love for you to click the link below which I have set up for you to create your own copy of the flowchart, modify to illustrate how you do it, and send it my way. Instructions are below.

I am open to feedback.

(PS: The “Self-Reliance Plan” form referenced in the flowchart was formerly referred to as a “Needs and Resources Analysis” form. The bishop’s guide to this form is found here.)
