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.

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.

You had more questions about church engagement—so we are  taking this week to answer them.

We recently hosted a webinar on the topic of ​increasing church engagement​, and as part of the event, we fielded questions from people who tuned in. We weren’t able to get through all of the questions live, so in this episode, we’re digging a bit deeper.

We saw some themes in the questions that came in. Participants were  asking things like...

  1. How do you measure engagement of people before they attend your church?
  2. How do you engage more empty-nesters in serving?
  3. What does engagement looks like in a transient area, where the turnover every year or two is significant?  
  4. Does the nature of the serving (internally within the church vs. externally in the community) have any impact on engagement?
  5. What are best practices for churches who live stream their services to increase engagement from those who watch online? 
  6. How do you successfully re-engage people who stop taking steps on your discipleship path?

In this episode, Tony and Amy share their answers to these questions and more!

Bus ministry, cassette tape messages, door-to-door evangelism... all ministry strategies have a lifespan. Is multisite nearing its end?

Recently, some high profile multisite churches made the decision to un-multisite. For a variety of reasons, their ministry strategy has shifted from “one church in many locations” to “multiple independent churches,” some even boldly downsizing to one location.

Do these public shifts in strategy signal the beginning of the end for the multisite era?

In this episode, Tony sits down with Geoff Surratt, pastor and author of The Multisite Revolution, for a conversation on the future of multisite church, and whether or not it's still an effective strategy in today's culture.

What's the "win" for your church's social media activity? If you don’t know, at best you'll waste time and resources, and at worst you’ll do damage to your brand and the potential you have to engage people outside your church.

Social media platforms play a big role in the success of an inbound marketing strategy, and it seems like most churches are struggling to use them well. (Not sure what "inbound marketing" means? We covered it in Episode 61).  

Why are they struggling? For one, the nuances of social media are always changing. 

In this episode, Tiffany Deluccia from The Unstuck Group's team joins Tony and Amy to help unpack some things you need to know to maximize the potential of social media for reaching more people and increasing engagement.

Engagement—It's the buzz word we hear church leaders discussing across the country. What does it really mean and how do you know if you're hitting a mark?

Truth be told, we find many pastors are confused about engagement. How do we increase it? Why do people show up, come back, plug in or leave?

Recently, Tony, Amy and Sean hosted a live webinar for church leaders on the topic of engagement. In this episode, we're sharing that conversation with you.

It’s one of the big responsibilities every pastor has—the planning process for message series.

Few pastors tell us they have a great process. Often, there’s no plan at all, or the plan only goes a few months out and lacks an aspect that brings focus to the big picture. While it may work for the lead pastor’s writing rhythm, it rarely serves the rest of the team well.

In this episode, Tony and Amy talk best practices for taking the frustration out of sermon series planning for both you and your team.

It can feel like a losing battle. You want to help new guests feel welcome and decide to return, but how do you even identify them? The most common strategies don't work very well anymore.

Many churches don't have an intentional plan to identify, welcome and follow up with their new guests. And, if they do have a plan, it’s often too cumbersome for a new guest to engage.

In this episode, Tony, Amy and Sean share the method we’ve seen some churches use that's working incredibly well, and how simple it is to bring your guest connection strategy into the 21st century.

The good news is that things have gotten better. 

A few decades ago, churches weren’t talking about design or brand or project management or technology.

The bad news? Many churches are doing those things now, but overall our outcomes are not better. Many churches are still in decline, and all this cool stuff we're creating is not putting the mission and vision in action or within reach. 

In this episode, Tony and Amy interview Kem Meyer, author of Less Chaos. Less Noise., about how we can reframe our understanding of brand and communications for this decade. Kem also shares a practical tool to help you get started.

Church growth vs. spiritual growth. Churches often operate like the two are mutually exclusive. 

The truth is, Jesus charged us both with reaching new people and helping them learn to be more like Him. We find unstuck churches are effective on both sides of the equation.

In this episode, Tony and Amy share 3 reasons why churches are struggling to help people grow spiritually, and some practical next steps you can take as a leader to turn things around.

167 hours per week. That's how much time people spend doing all the things that don't happen at a weekend church service.

If you're interested in redeeming all that time to help people take next steps in their relationship with Christ, there's one particular strategy we'd encourage you to employ.

And very few churches are trying it.

This episode is all about podcasting. A few reasons to look at your church podcast through a new lens:

  • 32% of the US population is consuming podcast content monthly
  • 22% are engaging weekly
  • The average weekly podcast consumer listens to 6+ hours of podcast episodes
  • 80% of podcast listeners listen to the entire episode or most of the episode

In this episode, Sean Bublitz  joins Tony and Amy to talk about how your church podcast could be so much more than a replay of your weekend message and could help you extend the reach of your church directly into people’s lives.

Listen for a practical discussion about why and how to get started.

Tension. Your multisite church has some frustration bubbling below the surface if you hear team members asking questions like...

Who do I (really) report to? Who made that decision? Why didn’t they ask me about that? Why can’t we do that?

We find there are 3 areas every multisite church must clarify to reduce tensions in the multisite matrix. In this episode, Tony and Amy dig deep into all of them, and share some practical next steps that will help you get unstuck.

One church. Multiple Locations. It's the mantra of the multisite movement.

But in our experience? Few are truly one unified church meeting in multiple locations.

Instead, what we find is that many multisite churches are connected through one leadership structure, but beyond that, they are splintered in their ministry strategy.

They are really multiple churches trying to operate as one church.

In this episode, Tony and Amy unpack 3 specific warning signs a church that thinks it's using a multisite strategy is really doing... something else.

More leaders. Every pastor we talk to is hoping to find more of them.

But how well are you multiplying the ones you have?

Multiplication is the element of small groups strategy churches tend to leave out. But if you're developing leaders through small groups, that's discipleship that leads to multiplication. You can eventually send them out to start new groups or let them take over existing ones. Then you send out the original leaders as disciple makers to create more.

In this episode, Tony Morgan interviews Chris Surratt. Chris is an author, a ministry consultant at The Unstuck Group, and the Discipleship & Small Groups Specialist at Lifeway Christian Resources.

This is a conversation with practical tips for how you can equip group leaders to build effective, multiplying small groups.
