Every quarter, The Unstuck Group releases The Unstuck Church Report to help church leaders monitor trends and benchmarks in key ministry areas. After all, a data point by itself doesn’t tell you much, but that data point tracked over time and compared to other metrics can begin to tell a story.

In this episode, Tony and Amy unpack the "story" this quarter's data is telling as well as some of the key findings from the Q3 2023 report.

You can subscribe to receive the quarterly report for free, or, if you're subscribed to the podcast show notes, we'll send it out to you for free, as well.

This Episode is Sponsored by Christian Financial Resources

Since 1980, Christian Financial Resources (CFR) has financed more than 950 ministry projects for independent churches in the United States. As your church grows, CFR is equipped to support your vision and your ministry with financial services tailored to meet the needs of independent churches—including capital campaigns, stewardship services, and loans for construction, building purchase, or real estate acquisition.

As your ministry continues to grow, consider how CFR can help your church cultivate a generosity mentality and raise more capital for your next project.

In this episode, Tony and Amy continue our series on sharpening your executive leadership skills with a conversation on two of the four key roles a senior pastor can't delegate.

In last week's podcast, we unpacked the first two roles an Executive Pastor can’t delegate: making the vision actionable and driving core initiatives in order to free the senior pastor to focus on only the roles that they can be responsible for. 

In this episode, we’ll discuss the third and final role an Executive Pastor can’t delegate—and unpack how that role plays out in their leadership.

When senior leaders are clear on their roles and their giftings complement each other, the church is well positioned for health and growth. On the other hand, when those same leaders don’t own the responsibilities they can't delegate, the vision and team begin to suffer. 

This week, we’re kicking off a brand new series on “Sharpening Your Executive Leadership Skills” with a conversation on two key roles an executive pastor can't delegate.
