The Christian Leader

By F. Joe Ellis WHAT IS A LEADER? A leader is someone who leads. He or she is someone who . . . and the list goes on and on. Usually that list will include all the do’s and don’ts of leadership, which is almost always the ideal rather than the practical. However, as one well-known author wrote […]

Prescription For Productive Staff Meetings

By Brian K Baulnight Few events in larger membership churches elicit more frustration than staff meetings. Most critiques range from “boooring” to brutal. Seldom anticipating staff gatherings with enthusiasm, many team members endure them as a presumed necessary evil.
