7 Questions To Ask Your Church Staff On A Bi-Annual Basis

Leadership is more than casting vision. Effective leadership requires being hands-on and intentional about maintaining relationships with your staff.

These questions can be general but should ultimately help you better understand the people who work under your leadership every day. I encourage you to cover these questions in your regular staff reviews as a way to ensure you're asking them on a consistent basis.

We’ve provided seven questions below that can help you accomplish this.

4 Ideas About Introverts To Keep In Mind On Your Church Staff

I am a loud and proud introvert (okay, not really loud per se). Recently I read the book Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain, and if I were actually loud, I would shout about this book from the rooftops.

It goes through many studies and theories examining and discussing introversion at its core, laying out ideas on how to tell from an early age whether a child is an introvert or extrovert, as well as the way culture can shape this trait.

3 Ways To Encourage Your Congregation Through Difficulty

We should expect it. There will be a season where our staff, congregation, and world will experience suffering. We all have our own seasons of hardship, but there will be a time where our church (big C or little c) experiences something that could potentially cause devastation among the church. Whether it is a moral failure, natural disaster, debt, or loss of a loved one, the church needs to understand how to stay standing during difficult circumstances. The question is not how to avoid suffering, but how do we suffer well as the church?
