Todd Rhoades has been in the "Connecting Staff to Churches" business since the dawn of the New Millennium, the year 2000! He recently spent 10 years on the team at the Leadership Network, and almost four years ago co-founded ChemistryStaffing.com with Matt Steen.
Todd has been neck deep in ministry practice, theory, and leadership for a long time. I've seen him on websites and emails for years and have FINALLY had the opportunity to sit down with him for an hour-long conversation, which I share with you today on Episode 413! Enjoy!
If you are sensing God's call to a new ministry, or if you need to call a new staff member and need help in the search, contact Todd or Matt at Chemistry Staffing!
Roger Parrott is the President of Belhaven University in Jackson Mississippi. He has written a book unlike any book I've ever seen on leadership - it's called Opportunity Leadership - Stop Planning and Start Getting Results.
Roger told me "getting rid of planning is the single best leadership decision I ever made!" I spoke with Dr. Parrott about his university, where he has served for decades, about his family, and about his perspective on leadership.
He has a phenomenal 5-part video series called "The Real Cost of College" which would be helpful to you if you are planning on sending a kid to college this year.

This is a supremely practical episode as Dave Jacobs, from SmallChurchPastor.com, and I talk about leadership team meetings, and how to make them both enjoyable and productive. We cover a ton of ground in this episode!
You will hear a number of things that connect with your experience and give you some ways to improve how you are planning and leading meetings in your ministry.
Dave is offering at the start of 2023 - to all of our listeners - four FREE 45 minute coaching sessions, so that you can test drive his expertise in pastoral coaching, with no cost to you.
I want to urge you to consider asking your board to support you in one coaching call per month with Dave Jacobs. And... I explain that in this episode. Pastors need help and support now more than ever, and with 15 years of experience coaching pastors, Dave provides quite the ministry of support to, especially, small church pastors.
You will ENJOY this episode - and it's our gift to you!
