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.

Everyone wants to be more productive, and there's an exploding industry of apps, journals and resources that promises to help.

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.

Possibilities. With the turning of the calendar, there’s often a renewed sense of hope and a dream of what could be.

We all tend to believe this is the year things will be different. Too often, though, leaders hold onto this hope without a plan to achieve it.

In this episode, Tony and Amy explain why hope is not a strategy for your church and explore some practical ways that you can create a plan for greater ministry impact. 

- Why Christians should be the best planners in the world based on what we see in Scripture, and why the old debate of "planning" vs. "relying on the Holy Spirit" is a false dichotomy, and really, just bad theology

- 4 questions you need to answer in any effective planning process, and why we bring in an outside facilitator to help our team plan

- The "sweet spot" number of people to involve in your planning team, plus why the larger a church grows the smaller its planning teams tend to be

- What happens when you involve too many people in planning for the future (Hint: The extroverts get more extroverted, and the introverts get more introverted.)

We're still on a high from a gathering we had in Phoenix a few weeks ago. The Unstuck Group's team members—about 30 of us—got together for our annual meet-up.

Tony shared highlights from the last 12 months of helping churches get unstuck, which included celebrating 10 years of The Unstuck Group, serving our 400th church, kicking off a merger-succession to join Jim Tomberlin's MultiSite Solutions to our team, launching the Multisite Unstuck Course, and adding 5 new team members.

In this episode, Tony and Amy and reflect on what we've learned over the last 12 months helping churches get unstuck and share some things we're celebrating as a team, as well as preview some exciting things that are on the way!

The results are pretty predictable… vision stalls out, staff teams can get dysfunctional, and tension can develop in the relationship with the lead pastor.

All because the wins for the Executive Pastor role aren't 100% clear.

In our recent webinar, Dan Reiland, Jenni Catron and Paul Alexander joined Tony for a practical conversation how to get an XP firing on all cylinders. When an Executive Pastor own the roles they can't delegate, the results are a clear path from vision to execution, high impact staff teams, and a lead pastor free to focus on what only he or she can do.

When people see their church being led intentionally and efficiently with wise financial decision making, they will become incredibly generous.

Unfortunately, many churches make unwise decisions when it comes to budgeting and planning that result in regular cuts and spending freezes.

Churches can operate with enough healthy margin that will prepare them for some of the amazing opportunities God will send their way—it only requires following a few proven principles.

This week on the podcast we conclude our four part series on financial challenges that churches face today. Chris Hodges from the Church of the Highlands talks about how churches can become more practical in financial planning.

When churches plan their finances strategically, they can fund even the biggest visions and dreams from God.

Unfortunately, poor financial planning can lead to money dictating ministry instead of driving it.

This week on the podcast we continue our four part series on financial challenges that churches face today. Jill Mutimer from the Strategic Consulting Group joins me to talk about how churches can become more strategic in their financial planning.

Churches today are facing more challenges than ever when it comes to their finances. 

Discipling givers, managing money and creating annual budgets are complicated issues that every church has to navigate. 
 
This week on the podcast we continue a four part series on the specific issues churches face when it comes to money.
 
In this episode, Tony is joined by Dan Dorner from In Rhythm Consulting for a conversation on how churches can better steward their money and resources.

I think most church leaders would agree that they're experiencing some shifts in giving. And while it's not always easy to talk about money, financial means resource our ministry and our church.

In the past 15 years, the percentage of households giving to charity has dropped 18%. Research says that the number one corollary to generosity is being a Christian. With trends showing a significant decrease in generosity, how can we adjust? How can we develop cultures of generosity in the church?

On this week's episode, Joe Park, from Horizons Stewardship, joins me on the podcast to talk all things money and giving.

How do we develop great leaders?

This seems to be the golden question of church leaders today. But the truth is no organization can thrive without great leadership. And it’s not likely that you’ll stumble upon enough great leaders to maintain the health and growth of your ministry. 

When we work with churches, we consistently see a tension with how to not only find potential leaders, but how to develop them, as well.  How do you take them to the next level and increase their capacity? 

In this episode, Tony and Paul Alexander, Executive Pastor of Sun Valley Community Church in Arizona, are digging into how effective leadership development really works in the context of the church.

Churches decorate, plan and hold extra services—but are we really connecting with the people who only come to church during the most wonderful time of the year?

Our culture still embraces Christmas. Easter? Not so much. Church leaders can leverage this holiday better than any other to generate momentum for reaching people outside the church.

In this replay of a popular episode, Tony and Amy review "the wins" every church can experience during the Christmas season... if they just reframe how they think about it.

It’s possible to grow a church that is not healthy. It’s also possible for healthy churches to get stuck.

But we think the win is for there to be both health and growth in a church. When that happens, we get to celebrate as churches continue to fulfill the Great Commission and make more disciples.

In the second part of this episode series, Tony and Amy unpack the next 5 things on a list we brainstormed of 10 things we regularly see unstuck churches doing right—and all of them stand the test of time.

Many people are more familiar with what the church is against than what the Church is for.

Jeff Henderson's new book Know What You're FOR: A Growth Strategy for Work, An Even Better Strategy for Life is all about shifts organizations can make to be for their communities.

In this episode, Jeff joins Tony for a conversation about practical ideas leaders can implement to reframe how their churches think and behave, at the staff and congregational levels, to become a church the community would beg to keep its doors open.

We’ve found many church staff teams operate in one of two extremes: 

They get along with each other but struggle to execute plans... or they are impressively productive but unhealthy and dysfunctional.

The undercurrent is often that we church leaders can get so busy "doing" ministry that we never think about how we "do" team.

It's the Sunday's always coming syndrome. But the truth is, a church's kingdom impact is directly correlated with the health and performance of its team. Your team is the most valuable asset you have in making progress toward your vision.

In this episode, we're sharing a portion of our recent webinar featuring Tony Morgan, Amy Anderson and Lance Witt that focused on what we're learning about healthy, high-performing church staff teams.

Churches drift towards an insider-focus over time—more attention is given to discipleship of Christ followers than to effective outreach and evangelism.

How do you fight that tendency? We’ve noted four steps that help churches open their “front door” wider. All four are critical—but we’ve found most churches only have strategies and structure to engage one or two of them.

In this four-part series, Tony and Amy unpack the key steps we see helping churches reach more new guests with the love of Jesus:

  1. Pre-Guest Engagement
  2. The 1st-Time Guest Experience
  3. First Steps Engagement
  4. Next Steps Engagement 

In this episode—Engaging Your Mission Field (Part 4)—Tony and Amy unpack how we can do a better job helping people find their place in the body of Christ.

How do you fight that tendency? We’ve noted four steps that help churches open their “front door” wider. All four are critical—but we’ve found most churches only have strategies and structure to engage one or two of them.

In this four-part series, Tony and Amy unpack the key steps we see helping churches reach more new guests with the love of Jesus:

  1. Pre-Guest Engagement
  2. The 1st-Time Guest Experience
  3. First Steps Engagement
  4. Next Steps Engagement 

In this episode—Engaging Your Mission Field (Part 3)—Tony and Amy dig into how we can better engage new guests beyond the weekend experience, including several key strategies that will help new guests take those first steps.
