December 5th, 2017

One of the most important things in the success of your church is a healthy team. If your team is thriving and working together, your congregation will feel the impact. We’ve talked in the past about a number of ways to focus on pouring into your team and keeping a healthy staff. It’s just that important! But you don’t need us to tell you that. If you’ve worked in church leadership for anytime at all, then you’ve probably experienced the opposite of a healthy team or staff member at least once so far. And if you have, then you know exactly just how detrimental even just one unhealthy, unhappy member of your team can be to not just your staff, but to your church as a whole. Nothing will take you off track and shift your eyes from the mission faster than behaviors or attitudes that we call team killers.

Keep It Simple: Five Basic Things Your Church Website Should Have

By: Samantha Decker
October 3rd, 2017

Let’s face it: Most of us have a habit of overcomplicating things from time to time. What should be simple and straightforward suddenly becomes lengthy and overwhelming. Sometime we overcomplicate the process and make things more difficult than they need to be. Take your church website for example.

By: Samantha Decker
September 11th, 2017
