Practical Stuff for Church Leaders

Great Discussions

Every week, I'm involved in several online discussions with some of my peeps who I've met through the Executive Pastors' Coaching Network. Here are some examples...

  • What are the pros and cons of outsourcing our accounting functions?
  • What architectural firm have you used and what was your experience?
  • What should I use as a 'severance agreement' when someone is leaving our staff?
  • How do you structure the finances for your multi-site congregations?
  • How do I have a difficult conversation with a long-time staff member who is no longer effective?
  • What do you do to pour into your staff for training and leadership?
  • What do you report to your Board and what types of reports do you give them?
  • How much cash do you try to keep in the bank in reserves?
  • How do we communicate a moral failure to our congregation?
  • How often do you communicate with your church via email, and what system do you use?

There is huge power in connecting with a group of like-minded leaders who are walking the same path as you, but have a fresh perspective you may not have. I have so cherished the relationship I have with the 71 leaders who have journeyed with me in an Executive Pastors' Coaching Network over the past few years. Our next group begins next month--but it's not too late to sign up.

Oh, and by the way, you don't have to be an Executive Pastor to join up. If you are the man or woman largely responsible for running a church, regardless of your title, then this Coaching network will benefit you.

It begins soon--and there are just a few slots remaining (it is limited to 12 leaders)--so apply today if you would like to join me.
