Growing Healthy Churches

Healthy Churches, Led by Healthy Leaders, Changing the World

The road of church leadership is marked by potholes too numerous to count. Most are small ones. Step in one and it hurts a bit for a while, and then you move on – hopefully wiser for the misstep. Some are far more serious: like a change implemented clumsily creating unnecessary opposition and angst; a loudly promoted initiative that fails due to poor planning; or a poor staff choice resulting in a “divided house” with their “fans” pitted against you and your board.

 

Then there’s the “Mother of all Potholes.” It’s deep and difficult to get out of. It’s different from all the rest of the potholes because it’s movable! It goes wherever you go. It’s always just a step away. We all step in it from time-to-time, some more often than others. And the consequences of stepping in it are significant, sometimes even debilitating.  Read more!

Back in the summer of 2009 I was blown away by one of the most impacting, thought altering, consequential books I’ve read. It was actually written in 2006 – 11 years ago, but, as I have been researching the emerging new generation and their relationship to the Gospel, the Church and Faith I returned to this mind-bending book and highly recommend it to you if you want your brain fried and cooked over the quieter summer months.

Its called The Hidden Power of Electronic Culture: How Media Shapes Faith, The Gospel, and Church @ShaneHipps.

Be warned – this will stretch and push you to places you may not have wanted to go!
