You’ve probably heard it a dozen times from leadership books, from leadership coaches, from social media, from every source imaginable. People don’t leave jobs — they leave leaders. It’s become a standard leadership cliche. But cliches often become cliches because they’re true. People don’t leave jobs. They leave the people who were leading them in those jobs. And if you’re a leader, that’s a reality you have to pay attention to every day.
Your role goes way beyond managing income and expenses. Through the lens of church finances you help your leaders see the evidence of discipleship, maturity, and commitment to the calling of your church.
When you’ve decided that you’d like to create a mobile app for your church, considering all of the possibilities can be very exciting. This technology could provide some really incredible ways for you to reach people outside your church and better connect with those on the inside.
Scandal! It’s a word that crops up and plagues churches in the media far too often, a word no church leader ever wants to hear associated with theirs. Unfortunately, scandal is also something that catches most church leaders off guard when it happens.
There is perhaps no greater pain in life than losing someone you care dearly for. Scripture promises the hope of a day when all those who grieve will be comforted and “death shall be no more” (Rev 21:4). It’s a beautiful vision, to be sure, but one we’re still waiting for.
