Annual reviews. Grading on a fuzzy 10-point scale. Infrequent 1-on-1 meetings... we've all be on the receiving end of an ineffective performance management system.

Is there a better way? Does performance management even belong on church staff teams?

Pastors frequently tell us they weren't taught the skills to lead an organization in seminary. When teams are small, it’s easy to lead the staff and keep everyone on the same page. But as a team gets larger, pastors do need new tools to keep the team aligned, productive and growing in their skills and abilities.

In Part 2 of this series on staff leadership issues, Tony and Amy discuss the best system and practices we've seen in churches that effectively manage performance and execute at a high level—and spoiler alert! It's actually very simple.

Frustration, silos, turf wars and inaction... There might just be a fuzzy decison-making process in your organization. The good news? These are all solvable problems with clear decision rights.

In moments of crisis, it's wholly appropriate for the leader to make more decisions. But now it's time to start shifting to a more collaborative approach to leadership—or you're going to limit the impact that your organization can have in the months and the years going forward.

In Part 1 of a two-part series on staff leadership issues, Tony and Amy discuss this issue of “who gets to make what decisions,” which we find is a challenge with almost every church we coach.

We're back from our brief podcast hiatus! And we've got lots of NEW data and stories to share.

We recently partnered with Blackbaud for a special edition of our quarterly research report, The Unstuck Church Report. More than 550 churches shared with us how they're continuing to respond to the coronavirus crisis.

There was some good news:

  • Churches seem to be finding themselves in a better financial position than they previously anticipated.
  • Online engagement remains strong compared to pre-pandemic in-person attendance.
  • And, though most churches have not re-opened for in person services, many are planning on reopening their buildings for weekend services soon.

But there were also a number of things we found alarming, particularly as we consider the long-term ramifications of what we're experiencing right now.

In this episode, Tony and Amy discuss the findings of the survey—along with anecdotal findings from our work helping 50+ churches navigate ministry strategy in the last couple of months—and we share our take on what all of it is telling us about what's coming and how we should be preparing.

Alignment within your church won't happen on accident.

You have to maintain it on an ongoing basis, but if your alignment doesn't lead to clearer ministry priorities and more focused action from your team, it's unlikely you'll see the results you're praying for. 
 
In this final and third episode in our Strategic Alignment Pyramid series, Tony and Amy dive into the Action level of the pyramid with a conversation about how organizational goals align to ministry and individual priorities for healthy, strategic action.

Busy—Everyone’s working hard, but the work isn’t organized. It’s not focused. And honestly—the church isn’t seeing the results you are hoping to see.

Sound familiar? Common symptoms of unclear vision, goals and strategies.

In Part 2 of our series about the Strategic Alignment Pyramid, we examine how it’s possible for your church to do the work of God without doing the work God called you to do—and how to clarify the Directional levels of the pyramid that must be revisited and changed as seasons change.

Times of crisis shine a spotlight on issues like lack of vision clarity and team misalignment.

If you sense the future for your church feels unclear and that your team is not pulling in the same direction, you’re not alone.

In this episode, we kick off a series about a tool—the Strategic Alignment Pyramid—that can help you learn how to reinvent your ministry methods in a way that will unify your entire team around a clear mission and the right priorities.

In Part 1, Tony and Amy discuss the things that stay the same even in times of rapid change—the foundational layers. They need to be defined, but they don’t ever really change.

Overwhelming and confusing—the words pastors have been using when they talk to us about measuring online engagement.

It feels like everyone has been talking about what to measure for the last few weeks, and somehow, it's not getting clearer.

Here's our take: Churches should give the most attention to tracking things that help them make decisions and lead to wins with the bigger picture ministry goals.

Not sure how to do that?

In this episode, Tony and Amy interview Tiffany Deluccia, The Unstuck Group’s director of sales and marketing, to shed some light on how to reframe—and simplify—the wins for measuring engagement.

There’s a lot of change happening in our world right now, and likely a lot more to come.

As leaders, we have to be ready to change our ministry strategy, while holding true to our responsibilities as leaders.

In this episode, Tony Morgan and Amy Anderson are diving into the 4 roles a senior pastor can't delegate (ever), and why you need to bring them back into focus TODAY, given what our churches have experienced during recent weeks.

What can you do TODAY? 

Many pastors are asking us, “When do you think we’ll be able to reopen our churches?” But that’s the wrong question. The question we need to be asking is, “How must the church change for a new normal?”

It will be too easy to go back to doing church the way we’ve always done church when we're safe to gather again. But if we do, we will have missed the opportunity of capitalizing on what God’s teaching us during this interruption. And—this present crisis is accelerating trends related to attendance, giving and engagement we saw emerging before it started. 

In this episode, Tony and Amy share seven shifts we think pastors will need to begin leading now for their churches to thrive in the future.

Response-Mode. That's where churches have been for the last several weeks.

We surveyed more than 500 churches—ranging from under 100 in attendance to more than 20,000—between April 2 and 6. Generally, the data shows that larger churches were better prepared for this crisis than smaller churches. That’s probably not a surprise.

However, it’s encouraging to see how quickly churches of all sizes have responded. Based on the survey, it looks like the vast majority of churches have settled into a new way of doing church.

In this episode, Tony and Amy share some of the data from our survey, as well as their insights into what it's telling us about how we prepare for the future.

Money. If it was a challenging topic for church leaders before, it feels all-out tricky right now.

The coronavirus crisis quickly brought many financial challenges to churches, and talking about and managing money has gotten increasingly difficult.

In this episode, Tony and Amy host a conversation with Rick Holliday from North Point Ministries (Alpharetta, GA), David Vaughan from Whitewater Crossing Church (Cleves, OH) and Scott Moore from Eastridge Church (Covington, GA)—three church leaders who are navigating this crisis in their local churches.

First ever. How often do we get the chance to do something in a way it's never been done before?

There's no doubt this Easter season will be the first time in our history so many churches will gather online for their celebrations. We have a great opportunity to share the message of Jesus, but is there a risk to relying on the ways we've always done Easter in a moment when nothing is as usual?

In this episode, Tony and Amy, share a conversation on how we need to reimagine Easter in our communication, planning and programming.

You've managed your initial response to the coronavirus crisis. You've canceled church services, moved online, deployed virtual small groups, started working remotely, ramped up communication via email and social media... You're figuring out how to manage the day-to-day.

The crisis is still escalating. "Back to normal" is just a wish. Easter is a few weeks away.

Have you caught your breath yet? We haven't. 

But still...

Leaders can't help but look for opportunities in the midst of trials. We sense God's doing something incredible that we're only beginning to see. We believe the Church will shine in this season, and will emerge healthier and stronger.

So if you're a leader already toying with what your church's next steps should be, even if it's too early to start taking them—Dream with us.

In this episode, Tony and Amy dig into opportunities we see for churches for immediate, near-term and longer-term change.

Will you redeem the time? While events around the world have brought on growing fear and anxiety, the Church stands on the edge of an incredible opportunity to bring hope.

If your church won’t be holding weekend services or other large gatherings in the coming weeks, your team actually may have more time on their hand than ever before.

How will you redeem the time for good?

In this episode, Tony and Amy are exploring how pastors respond effectively in crisis to both communicate hope AND identify opportunities to do things you've ever before had the opportunity to do.

Needless to say, a lot has changed in our world in the last 48 hours.

While the world around us pauses and isolates to try to combat the spread of the coronavirus, I believe the opportunity has never been greater for the church to shine. And because of that, I think you and your church are uniquely positioned to impact your community. 

Even though worship gatherings will likely pause at your church, the time has never been more appropriate for you and your ministry team to be the church

Secret shopper data from the work we do with 100s of churches each year shows us some interesting trends...

Even churches who are clear on their mission field develop blind spots over time. We get used to the way we do things. We don’t see the “dust” anymore, so it becomes harder for us to really see what an outsider sees.

In this last episode of our series on creating compelling weekend services, Amy and Tony discuss 4 blind spots pastors often tell us a Secret Shopper revealed for them, and some next steps we counsel churches to take when those blind spots become visible.

Overestimating the effectiveness of the weekend?

Every church wants its weekend services to help people grow closer to Christ. But if you're not planning well, great ideas get left on the table.

You're likely missing opportunities to get the best from your team and to lead the people in your seats towards their next steps in faith.

In this episode, Tony and Amy discuss simple adjustments you can make. You might just find yourself marveling at how much easier it becomes to make the weekends remarkable.

Boring. Invisible. Unremarkable. Words we'd rather people not use to describe about our church services.

But what are we really doing to make the weekend more compelling?

In her book An Hour on Sunday, Nance Beach said, “The hour can simply be sixty minutes for attenders to survive; a time for minds to wander aimlessly and hearts go untouched. Or maybe, the hour on Sunday can be a time of wonder, a time of transformation, perhaps seen as a time of awe.”

Are you ready to create weekend experiences remarkable enough that people both want to attend themselves and want to invite others to come along?

In this episode, Tony and Amy kick off a series exploring how to do just that.

Ever heard the phrase "the manager relies on control while the leader inspires trust"? 

Over the last several decades, resources and teaching on leadership thrived. But management? It’s often been minimized (at best) or even ridiculed or disparaged (at worst).

It's no wonder organizations often have a difficult time managing the day-to-day execution of their vision and strategy.

In this episode, Tony, Amy and Lance explore how leadership and management can be viewed as complementary essential functions, and how you can take steps to better manage your team towards increased health and performance.

But what if there were a few simple (and free!) steps that could increase your team's productivity by 30 percent?

In this episode, Tony, Amy and Lance share 3 questions to ask in every meeting that could radically impact how your staff gets things done.

Think of culture as gasoline and your ministry as an engine.

It’s not enough to have high-quality gasoline. Gasoline is purposeful; it is for powering the engine. A high-octane gas and a powerful engine will get traction quickly.  


Organizational DNA, or culture, is really about the way your team operates. It's how you do what you do.

And if you don’t shape culture intentionally, you might not like where you end up. Fact is, your staff team already has a culture, and it's the one you built, whether you meant to or not.

In Part 2 of this series, Tony, Amy, and Lance Witt explore how your church can more clearly define your DNA so that your staff team can thrive in both health and performance.

Team dysfunction. You feel it when you're in it, but can you see it coming? Can you be intentional about the culture you're building so the team stays focused on both relationships and results?

Churches can be clear on mission, vision and how they believe God has called them to operate, and yet... Something can still be broken.

That brokenness often falls into one of two extremes: Either the team is high-performing, but there's interpersonal and leadership dysfunction. Or, the team is relationally healthy, but there's a significant execution gap.

Even in between those extremes, many churches would still say they don’t feel like they’re winning in both areas.

In this episode, Lance Witt joins Tony and Amy to unpack the foundational aspects of intentionally building a high impact team and why it matters so much.

Taboo. When personal evangelism seems taboo, it's no surprise that invitations to new guests have decreased in many churches.

In 2019 research, Barna Group found that nearly half of practicing Christian millennials felt it is wrong to share their faith.

But what if there were a way to train and equip people to have a better understanding of why and how to talk about church?

In this episode, Tony talks with Michael Lukaszewski, founder of Church Fuel, for a conversation on how to put a spotlight on invitation in your church—including practical ways to get started.

What if all of your ministry planning was aimed at the wrong objectives? 

It’s important to regularly check in on your church’s movement in the typical life cycle so you can develop ministry plans that help you continue up the slope towards sustained health—

or reverse the decline that has already begun.

In this last episode of our ministry planning series, Tony and Amy review the typical life cycle of a church, some characteristics of each phase, and how this knowledge can blow up assumptions and help you make ministry plans that actually lead towards ministry health and growth.

Repetition—It's the key to building strong muscles. It takes repetition to see stronger results. That's because it's the key to getting better at execution, too.

Good planning helps us make the right investment in the right ministry at the right time.

And organizational planning tends to be a new muscle for church leaders to develop. That is, the staff, the pastor and the senior leadership team have to embrace some new disciplines in order to become better stewards of the resources God has given them. 

This is why we encourage pastors and leaders all the time to actually set up a rhythm for planning. 

In this episode, Tony and Amy share an effective ministry planning rhythm we see WORKING in hundreds of churches across the country.
