3 Shifts for Healthy & Growing Churches in 2017

Is the church you’re leading everything you once dreamed it would be? Every week at The Unstuck Group, we hear from pastors who are disappointed with their church’s current state. It’s not that they haven’t made an incredible impact! But they recognize a need to refocus.

Every church has a compelling purpose, even if it’s been lost, derailed or delayed.

God calls ordinary leaders to spark significant change in His kingdom. The Bible is literally littered with stories of every day people who God used to lead this incredible movement of change called the Church. I believe that God has placed you in the leadership seat you’re in at your church to help it become everything God has dreamed up for it to be. So let me ask…

What are the significant changes you’ve been considering for 2017? The team at The Unstuck Group asked that question to several hundred church leaders a few weeks ago, and three important shifts came up most frequently in their responses:

  1. Rallying Around a New Vision
  2. Reorganizing the Leadership Structure
  3. Simplifying the Discipleship Pathway

We agree those are important shifts. In fact, they’re some of the most common changes our team helps churches make, and we’d love to help you make them as well.

So, we’re hosting a webinar to help you make these shifts in 2017!

Join Tony Morgan, Carey Nieuwhof, Gabe Kolstad and myself on Monday, Jan. 23 at 1pm EST for the free webinar:

“Leading Change: 3 Shifts for Healthy and Growing Churches in 2017”

We’re going to be unpacking the stories of change at some great churches and sharing key steps to help you make make those 3 big shifts around vision, leadership, and your discipleship pathway. You’ll walk away with the insight you need to lead your church forward.

Leadership Summit 2015: Albert Tate

If you missed the Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit this year, no worries I’ve got you covered. I’ll be posting my notes and thoughts from each presenter over the next couple of days.

Albert Tate, founder and Senior Pastor at Fellowship Monrovia in Southern California gave a great challenge on how to lead with leftovers.

  • What do you believe: a lie in truths clothing or the naked truth?
  • We’re not supposed to leave it all on the field because we don’t live on the field, we live at home.
  • We need to learn to lead with left overs.
  • There’s times Jesus wants us to do the math just so we know it’s not successful because of us, but because of Him.
  • When is the last time you were in awe of how much Jesus did with your scarcity?
  • Give God what you have and get out of the way.
  • If you’ve got a spreadsheet but you’ve missed being able to spread out on the floor and trust and follow Jesus you’re missing the best part of following Jesus.
  • What would it mean at the end of the day to have something left for your family?
  • Sitting on empty isn’t a win.
  • You don’t have to go home on Empty, you don’t have to leave it all on the field. Because Jesus left it all on the cross!
