How To Lead Change In Your Church with Lee Kricher.jpg

The Vanderbloemen Leadership Podcast brings you interviews from leaders across the theological spectrum of the global Church. Our goal is to bring you thought-provoking interviews that encourage you, challenge you, and help you build, run, and keep great teams.

In today's episode of the Vanderbloemen Leadership Podcast, William talks with Lee Kricher, Senior Pastor of Amplify Church in Pittsburgh.

Lee Kricher founded Amplify Church in the eastern suburbs of Pittsburgh in the 1970s, later leaving to work in corporate leadership. In 2003, Lee became the Senior Pastor of Amplify Church again, now an aging church in that was in dire need of revitalization. During the following years, the church not only experienced significant growth, it was transformed into a "New Generation Church" - a church with attendees whose average age is at least as young as the average age of the community in which the church exists.

Lee is also the author of For A New Generation: A Practical Guide For Saving Your Church From Extinction. Lee's four decades of leadership experience in both the church and corporate worlds give him a unique perspective on how to apply proven change leadership principles in the church.

William talks with Lee about:

  • How to successfully lead change in churches
  • The best practices of change management
  • Ways to keep your church from falling back toward extinction
  • Common mistakes made during church revitalizations
  • The best pace for implementing change
