I’ve been married to a pastor for 22 years which means I’ve been a sounding board for all kinds of staffing issues from hiring/firing to getting the most from each team member. Oh sure, we plot and plan together for ministry strategy, events, and the spiritual growth of a church, but accomplishing our plans would be nearly impossible without the help of a talented, healthy ministry team.
If you are a pastor’s wife, you’re a sounding board, too. You’ve probably counseled your hubby through staffing conflicts, frustrations, and challenges. Sometimes you’ve sided with him. Sometimes you’ve played devil’s advocate to help him see another point of view. Those conversations are valuable to our husbands…and to our churches.
Let me share with you a few more valuable conversations that every pastor ought to hear.
My husband, leader of Courage To Lead, a coaching resource for pastors, asked some GREAT leaders this question:
How do you build a Healthy Staff Culture?
Shawn had insightful conversations with these men, and the info they shared was incredible.
Sam Chand has been coaching pastors for years, and he’s full of wisdom. Sam has mentored Craig Groeschel, Chris Hodges, Brian Houston, and many others. He is the author of Breaking Your Church’s Culture Code.
William Vanderbloemem runs the premier church staffing company that was just named one of the best places to work in America.
Chris Brown works with Dave Ramsey Solutions and is the host of the True Stewardship Leader Podcast.
Layne Schranz is part of the Lead Team at Church of the Highlands in Birmingham, Al. He is responsible for leading and guiding their 14 campus pastors, and he knows how to build and maintain a healthy staff culture.
These men have insanely practical things to share. If you or your husband are involved in ministry leadership, you absolutely don’t want to miss this.
