Episode 285 - Staffing Principles and Strategies That Work Even In Small Churches with Sarah Bouma from the Unstuck Group
Sarah Bouma, a ministry consultant with The Unstuck Group, joined Jeff recently to talk about staffing strategies in your 200church. Sarah is an energetic and passionate leader who loves the local church. She enjoys combining her educational background, her career work, and her local church experience to help pastors and staff to maximize their efforts for the Kingdom of God.
Sarah is not a podcaster, but you'd never know it as she lays out such practical wisdom that can quickly be applied by pastors in any size church! Sarah got to know Tony Morgan, founder of the Unstuck Group, when she attended, then served at Granger Community Church in Indiana. Years later Tony tapped her to help coach churches and pastors in the area of staffing.
Tony Morgan and The Unstuck Group are working with Jeff's church, to help them through a strategic planning process that will put them on the road to intentionality, focus, and clarity (at least if Jeff cooperates and listens to their advice!)
The Unstuck Group's church coaching process has four phases: Assessment, Planning, Structure, & Action. Jeff's church is approaching the action phase now, and it has been a lot of work, with most of the work still ahead.
You can get more information on The Unstuck Group by going to www.theunstuckgroup.com.
You can also get on the TONY MORGAN LIVE channel on YouTube, where you will find dozens of videos and interviews from which you'll grow as a pastor. BELOW is an interview Tony had with Thom Rainer on becoming a welcoming church. Both these guys are future guests on the 200churches Podcast!
Episode 284 tackles more questions from our listeners and from some of the pastors in the Small Church Pastor group on Facebook.
Dave Jacobs, from www.SmallChurchPastor.com joins Jeff in answering the questions.
Again, if you have even the slightest inkling that you want to be coached as a pastor, Dave Jacobs is your guy! Email him at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will schedule you on a free 30 minute call to determine if his coaching is right for you.
And, for senior and lead pastors, there is the Small Church Pastor Facebook group, which currently has 2,438 members as of the writing of this post. It's a great community of kind, supportive pastor friends that you should consider joining.
Until next week...
