At least once a week a pastor contacts me about church revitalization. I always tell them I’m still learning, but we have seen God do some pretty amazing things in our church. In all measurable areas we have experienced explosive growth in an over 100 year old, extremely established church. Through this blog I’ve tried …

Whenever I talk about firing people in ministry I create a great deal of interest. Some feel it makes the church seem too much like a business. I get it, but the other fact, and many understand through difficult experiences, if we don’t address this very serious issue, Kingdom dollars are often misused. And, if …

I once had a leader who was an emphatic talker. He made statements with no reservation in them about things – honestly – I simply didn’t believe. He would say stuff such as, “There is no way this would ever work.” Really? No way? Maybe the chance is limited, but no way? He impressed upon …

When I was in school I had a love-hate relationship with math. I loved doing math, working to find an answer to a problem, but I hated having to solve it with the teacher's methods. On tests I would do poorly if the teacher made us "show our work". I could get the right answers, but using my own systems.

Have you learned a valuable principle about your leadership? The way others expect you to respond often determines the way they respond. If they expect you to respond in anger...they'll dance around an issue, afraid to confront... If they expect you to respond defensively...they'll only bring you the proven answers...refusing to take risks...

This is a difficult post – about a difficult issue. It is one we don’t necessarily like to talk about in the church, but sometimes we must. I came out of a business background, so some things which are done in ministry are different for me. And, frankly, many should be. Ministry isn’t business – …

Guys, can I be honest with you? Marriage can be hard. Did you know that already? Sometimes you do the wrong thing before you even knew you did the wrong thing. You try to figure out the one you love the most but the more you try the more confused you get. I get it. I …

In August of every year I see the posts and get the emails. Parents are dropping off their kids at college – and, it’s hard. I know it is hard. Our first son went to college in the city where we lived, so we got a somewhat break from this one – although even them …
