People leave churches all the time.  It’s not something anyone wants to dwell on but it’s the simple truth.   The question isn’t whether or not people are going to leave your church.  The question is when and wh...

Hire Producers Not Projects

All pastors have a sense of vision.  They can see things before anyone else.  They can envision a future state that is better and more God-honoring than the current state.  This is normally a huge asset but when hiring new s...

Beware of the Label Maker

I hate labels. They tend to reduce people to mere terms and phrases inside of looking at them as the unique creations that they are. As bad as they can be, there is something a lot worse...a label maker.
