Part 1: Leadership to Foster Innovative Church Cultures

Part 1: Leadership to Foster Innovative Church Cultures

As Christ-followers, we dream of being part of a Gospel movement that not only transforms people’s lives but the world around us. And yet, the world over, ministries are shrinking, and church attendance is declining. From the inside looking out, it appears that there are more time-consuming, inferior activities than ever creating overloaded schedules and leaving us increasingly frustrated with the demands of contemporary culture.

The reality is that around the globe, people are leaving churches and Christianity as they know it citing irrelevance, a disconnect between head and heart, and unrelatable church cultures as their primary reasons. In this four part series, we’ll be looking into how church leaders can help their Gospel communities better respond to this global trend.

The Last Thing Your Team Members Want to Hear From You

The Last Thing Your Team Members Want to Hear From You

Does it feel like things fall apart when that one person isn’t there? Or do you have plenty of people that can fill in? Do you know if the strength of your leadership bench is costing you?

When you don’t have a deep leadership bench, and people need to be gone, it causes unnecessary stress and anxiety for you and everyone around you. The last thing your team members want to hear from you is that they can’t be gone regardless of their circumstances.  A close second is that you’re leaving a vacancy unfilled. More people than ever are burden by their workloads because of unfilled vacancies.
