Following the leader. A merger is always more successful when each church is clear on who leads and who follows. But for the church in the following role, deciding to merge with another ministry raises difficult questions related to governance, what happens to staff leaders and specific ministries, who has decision rights, and more. In this episode…
 
On this episode of Dear Strategy, we analyze the practice of retailers offering so many coupons that their discounted prices pretty much become their standard prices. And we talk about how customers feel when everyone else has coupons but them! Visit our Blog to read the full post that goes along with this episode. Subscribe to Our Mailing List to …
 
Better together? Over the past decade, we've seen a trend in churches merging together for many different reasons... and it seems likely that this trend will only increase in a post-pandemic world. On the positive side—healthy, mission-focused churches are benefitting: Multisite: Ten years ago 30% of multisite campuses came by way of a merger; toda…
 
Paralyzed. Tired. Depressed. Sad. Questioning leadership capacity. Just some of the ways pastors are describing their state of mind right now. If you're leading in a local church in 2020, you're not only helping others navigate change—you’re also processing it yourself. But some pastors are also telling us they feel re-energized by the opportunity …

The hard truth for outward-focused churches? New people are probably not going to come to our physical locations to try out church—not for a long time. In the last few months, the majority of churches shifted to holding services online, and recently, a lot of energy shifted to re-opening in-person services. But even if we take all the precautions a…
 
How do we DO this? That's the question we're hearing. The shift from analog to digital ministry is one of the biggest ministry strategy shifts churches are having to make right now. We reported in our special edition of the Q2 2020 Unstuck Church Report, that 70% of larger churches told us they thinking about how their staffing structure may need t…
 
On this episode of Dear Strategy, we analyze how customers feel about products that fail outside of their standard warranty periods but long before their normal expected lives. Is it a smart strategy for companies to stick to those 1-year warranties, or should they be exploring a different approach that focuses on long-term customer loyalty over sh…
 
Annual reviews. Grading on a fuzzy 10-point scale. Infrequent 1-on-1 meetings... we've all be on the receiving end of an ineffective performance management system. Is there a better way? Does performance management even belong on church staff teams? Pastors frequently tell us they weren't taught the skills to lead an organization in seminary. When …
 
Frustration, silos, turf wars and inaction... There might just be a fuzzy decison-making process in your organization. The good news? These are all solvable problems with clear decision rights. In moments of crisis, it's wholly appropriate for the leader to make more decisions. But now it's time to start shifting to a more collaborative approach to…
 
We're back from our brief podcast hiatus! And we've got lots of NEW data and stories to share. We recently partnered with Blackbaud for a special edition of our quarterly research report, The Unstuck Church Report. More than 550 churches shared with us how they're continuing to respond to the coronavirus crisis. There was some good news: Churches s…

On this episode of Dear Strategy, we analyze the story of a poorly designed refrigerator that lasted around 5 years before it finally bit the dust. And, of course, the warranty didn’t cover it. With more and more technologies being incorporated into just about every product we own, is this the new norm that we should be expecting from our previousl…
 
Alignment within your church won't happen on accident. You have to maintain it on an ongoing basis, but if your alignment doesn't lead to clearer ministry priorities and more focused action from your team, it's unlikely you'll see the results you're praying for. In this final and third episode in our Strategic Alignment Pyramid series, Tony and Amy…
 
On this episode of Dear Strategy, we answer the following question… Dear Strategy: “What are the key elements to have in a successful strategy for a non-core product? And what things should we avoid?” Visit our Blog to read the full post that goes along with this episode. Subscribe to Our Mailing List to stay up to date on all the latest episodes. …
 
Busy—Everyone’s working hard, but the work isn’t organized. It’s not focused. And honestly—the church isn’t seeing the results you are hoping to see. Sound familiar? Common symptoms of unclear vision, goals and strategies. In Part 2 of our series about the Strategic Alignment Pyramid, we examine how it’s possible for your church to do the work of G…
 
Times of crisis shine a spotlight on issues like lack of vision clarity and team misalignment. If you sense the future for your church feels unclear and that your team is not pulling in the same direction, you’re not alone. In this episode, we kick off a series about a tool—the Strategic Alignment Pyramid—that can help you learn how to reinvent you…
 
On this episode of Dear Strategy, we analyze an airline story involving a cancelled flight, a premium seat, and a not so premium re-booking experience. It’s fairly well known that flying isn't always the most customer-centric experience. But now, more than ever, airlines may need to start re-thinking their strategies – especially with respect to ho…
 
Overwhelming and confusing—the words pastors have been using when they talk to us about measuring online engagement. It feels like everyone has been talking about what to measure for the last few weeks, and somehow, it's not getting clearer. Here's our take: Churches should give the most attention to tracking things that help them make decisions an…
 
There’s a lot of change happening in our world right now, and likely a lot more to come. As leaders, we have to be ready to change our ministry strategy, while holding true to our responsibilities as leaders. In this episode, Tony Morgan and Amy Anderson are diving into the 4 roles a senior pastor can't delegate (ever), and why you need to bring th…

How do we develop a strategy that moves us into being a more solutions-oriented business?” Visit our Blog to read the full post that goes along with this episode.

What can you do TODAY? Many pastors are asking us, “When do you think we’ll be able to reopen our churches?” But that’s the wrong question. The question we need to be asking is, “How must the church change for a new normal?” It will be too easy to go back to doing church the way we’ve always done church when we're safe to gather again. But if we do…
 
Response-Mode. That's where churches have been for the last several weeks. We surveyed more than 500 churches—ranging from under 100 in attendance to more than 20,000—between April 2 and 6. Generally, the data shows that larger churches were better prepared for this crisis than smaller churches. That’s probably not a surprise. However, it’s encoura…
 
On this episode of Dear Strategy, we analyze the stories of two failed ventures – Theranos and the Fyre Festival. Both of these stories started with big dreams and ended in scandal. So how can leaders tell when their own lofty goals are actually bordering on becoming lofty lies? And what should they do about it? Visit our Blog to read the full post…
 
Money. If it was a challenging topic for church leaders before, it feels all-out tricky right now. The coronavirus crisis quickly brought many financial challenges to churches, and talking about and managing money has gotten increasingly difficult. In this episode, Tony and Amy host a conversation with Rick Holliday from North Point Ministries (Alp…
 
First ever. How often do we get the chance to do something in a way it's never been done before? There's no doubt this Easter season will be the first time in our history so many churches will gather online for their celebrations. We have a great opportunity to share the message of Jesus, but is there a risk to relying on the ways we've always done…
 
On this special episode of Dear Strategy, we talk about why long-term planning becomes more important than ever during times of crisis. When unexpected events happen, many companies may actually be deterred from thinking about the future because everything in the present seems so uncertain. But companies that take the time to think past a crisis ma…
 
You've managed your initial response to the coronavirus crisis. You've canceled church services, moved online, deployed virtual small groups, started working remotely, ramped up communication via email and social media... You're figuring out how to manage the day-to-day. The crisis is still escalating. "Back to normal" is just a wish. Easter is a f…
 
Will you redeem the time? While events around the world have brought on growing fear and anxiety, the Church stands on the edge of an incredible opportunity to bring hope. If your church won’t be holding weekend services or other large gatherings in the coming weeks, your team actually may have more time on their hand than ever before. How will you…

Needless to say, a lot has changed in our world in the last 48 hours. While the world around us pauses and isolates to try to combat the spread of the coronavirus, I believe the opportunity has never been greater for the church to shine. And because of that, I think you and your church are uniquely positioned to impact your community. Even though w…
 
Secret shopper data from the work we do with 100s of churches each year shows us some interesting trends... Even churches who are clear on their mission field develop blind spots over time. We get used to the way we do things. We don’t see the “dust” anymore, so it becomes harder for us to really see what an outsider sees. In this last episode of o…
 
Overestimating the effectiveness of the weekend? Every church wants its weekend services to help people grow closer to Christ. But if you're not planning well, great ideas get left on the table. You're likely missing opportunities to get the best from your team and to lead the people in your seats towards their next steps in faith. In this episode,…
 
On this episode of Dear Strategy, we analyze a story about a company that launched a product through a crowdfunding site but didn’t ultimately deliver the product that they originally promised. Find out when crowdfunding works and when it doesn’t, as we explore this growing trend in product marketing. Visit our Blog to read the full post that goes …
 
Boring. Invisible. Unremarkable. Words we'd rather people not use to describe about our church services. But what are we really doing to make the weekend more compelling? In her book An Hour on Sunday, Nance Beach said, “The hour can simply be sixty minutes for attenders to survive; a time for minds to wander aimlessly and hearts go untouched. Or m…
 
Ever heard the phrase "the manager relies on control while the leader inspires trust"? Over the last several decades, resources and teaching on leadership thrived. But management? It’s often been minimized (at best) or even ridiculed or disparaged (at worst). It's no wonder organizations often have a difficult time managing the day-to-day execution…

Everyone wants to be more productive, and there's an exploding industry of apps, journals and resources that promises to help. But what if there were a few simple (and free!) steps that could increase your team's productivity by 30 percent? In this episode, Tony, Amy and Lance share 3 questions to ask in every meeting that could radically impact ho…
 
Think of culture as gasoline and your ministry as an engine. It’s not enough to have high-quality gasoline. Gasoline is purposeful; it is for powering the engine. A high-octane gas and a powerful engine will get traction quickly. Organizational DNA, or culture, is really about the way your team operates. It's how you do what you do. And if you don’…
 
On this episode of Dear Strategy, we analyze a story about trying to use a coupon at a retail store, only to find out that certain brands have been excluded. What is this practice all about and why does it seem to be trending toward becoming the new norm? Visit our Blog to read the full post that goes along with this episode. Subscribe to Our Maili…
 
Team dysfunction. You feel it when you're in it, but can you see it coming? Can you be intentional about the culture you're building so the team stays focused on both relationships and results? Churches can be clear on mission, vision and how they believe God has called them to operate, and yet... Something can still be broken. That brokenness ofte…
 
Taboo. When personal evangelism seems taboo, it's no surprise that invitations to new guests have decreased in many churches. In 2019 research, Barna Group found that nearly half of practicing Christian millennials felt it is wrong to share their faith. But what if there were a way to train and equip people to have a better understanding of why and…
 
On this episode of Dear Strategy, we answer the following question… Dear Strategy: “Thank you for the 5-part series that explained TAM/SAM/SOM back in April. Once I've decided what those are for my company, how do I then figure out how big any of those are in terms of revenue? What sources might I go to in order to figure out how big my market is?”…
 
What if all of your ministry planning was aimed at the wrong objectives? It’s important to regularly check in on your church’s movement in the typical life cycle so you can develop ministry plans that help you continue up the slope towards sustained health— or reverse the decline that has already begun. In this last episode of our ministry planning…
 
Repetition—It's the key to building strong muscles. It takes repetition to see stronger results. That's because it's the key to getting better at execution, too. Good planning helps us make the right investment in the right ministry at the right time. And organizational planning tends to be a new muscle for church leaders to develop. That is, the s…
 
On this episode of Dear Strategy, we analyze a story about a retailer that decided to lift its standard price matching policies during the week of Black Friday. On the surface, it seems like this would be a good financial move. But is it worth upsetting some of your most loyal customers just to make a few extra bucks during this important time of y…
 
Possibilities. With the turning of the calendar, there’s often a renewed sense of hope and a dream of what could be. We all tend to believe this is the year things will be different. Too often, though, leaders hold onto this hope without a plan to achieve it. In this episode, Tony and Amy explain why hope is not a strategy for your church and explo…
 
We're still on a high from a gathering we had in Phoenix a few weeks ago. The Unstuck Group's team members—about 30 of us—got together for our annual meet-up. Tony shared highlights from the last 12 months of helping churches get unstuck, which included celebrating 10 years of The Unstuck Group, serving our 400th church, kicking off a merger-succes…
 
The results are pretty predictable… vision stalls out, staff teams can get dysfunctional, and tension can develop in the relationship with the lead pastor. All because the wins for the Executive Pastor role aren't 100% clear. In our recent webinar, Dan Reiland, Jenni Catron and Paul Alexander joined Tony for a practical conversation how to get an X…
