One of the most common questions we get is: “I know what I’m supposed to do as a church leader, but I’m an introvert. How am I supposed to grow my church?” Believe it or not, Dr. Kris in not just an introvert, she’s a shy introvert … and yet, she’s successfully led in church planting, church transformation and growth, and judicatory transformation as well. In this episode, she and Dr. Bill will explore the realities and the how-tos of the shy and the introverted as effective growth leaders.
Developing Leaders for Ministry. We’ve never found a church who complained they had too many leaders … in fact, the opposite is the rule. But what can you do when 20 percent are doing 80 percent of ministry and the 20 percenters are tired? In this episode, Drs. Bill and Kris provide guidance for discovering the hidden leadership well in your congregation. This episode includes material from Bill T-B and Bill Easum’s upcoming book on staffing for the effective church (to be released in 2012 by Baker Books).
Faithful growing churches have a culture of trust that permeates virtually everything. When you trust your pastors, your committee or team leaders, and the membership, ministry decisions can be made when they’re needed and lives can be moved, touched, and inspired at the point of maximum impact. In this episode, Drs. Kris and Bill will look at how a church can build that kind of trust.
