In some ways, I don’t like the official designation of October to be pastor appreciation month. I really wish we showed appreciation to pastors all the time. But like many other points of recognition, it does serve as a reminder that we are blessed by our pastors and their ministries. So how

Have you heard this before? “We know that the last days will be wicked. Very wicked. Just like the days of Noah. That’s what Jesus said.” One website states, “Jesus said that the end times would be like the days of Noah and Lot. Are we living in a day like

For Lyle Dorsett, it was the sudden loss of his ten-year-old daughter Erica. She came down sick one night, and died the next morning. Years later, Dorsett and his wife Mary still are healing. Losing a child is a long, painful journey. There have been times, he says, when he’s thought,

Our team at The Unstuck Group was on the ground working with church leaders from 38 different churches this past month. We help churches wrestle with several common core issues, but leadership development always seems to be near the top of the list. The pressing need for leaders really isn’t a

Today I want to uncover what I believe is the most insidious deception leading Christians into idolatry—even right now. To do that, I have to take you back to the story of the golden calf at Mount Sinai. If you remember, God had just saved Israel from Egypt through many powerful

Is it possible for a church to take the Gospel for granted? Can we get so accustomed to it that we miss its power and significance to ministry? Could a church be so busy doing ministry (good things) that it’s not focused on Jesus? I think it’s possible. It’s possible in really good

ANGER seems to be at the root of the senseless violence confronting our nation today. People are angry.  Many of them do not even know why.  Most of us have no clue how to deal with them.  How would YOU deal with a monstrously angry person? I remember playing basketball with my

“Don’t do stupid.” Those were three words I spoke to my three sons as they were growing up. And I would give them specific ways they could “do stupid.” Why did I speak so bluntly to my three sons? Because I love them. Because I truly want what’s best for them. Because

Children’s Ministry can easily become an overlooked driver to the overall health and progress of our churches. In all reality, as long as volunteers are still showing up and if we don’t hear any major complaints, everything is ok back there, right? But here is the growing truth of our day

This week we have special guest Nido Qubein on our Success Made Simple podcast. He is currently on the board of multiple Fortune 500 companies and is the president of High Point University in North Carolina. His story will inspire us all that no matter where we start God can

Your church is likely entering a busy season. School has started. Members are in a routine again after the summer. Fall festivals details are being finalized.

An emergency reserve is a cash reserve in the form of an interest-bearing savings or money market account that is always available and easy to get to in case of emergency. No matter who you are, you need one. It’s your first step in building your financial security. An emergency

Deep within the heart of every man is a God-given desire for relationship. This is the way we were created. Many times we attempt to develop relationships out of our natural reason and understanding. However, the frailty of those relationships brings great disappointment. The Bible teaches us the principle of covenant

Churches can learn a lot from businesses. It’s true. I hope I didn’t lose you with that statement. For many years, I have worked with my team at The Unstuck Group to help churches get unstuck. But, I periodically have had the chance to serve businesses as well. And there’s one

“How can I set this before a hundred men?” his servant asked. But Elisha answered, “Give it to the people to eat. For this is what the Lord says, “They will eat and have some left over (2 Kings 4:43).” Sometimes, the best food is something you had left over from

With leadership comes a great responsibility to uphold a standard of integrity regardless of the cost. All too often we see leaders compromise their lifelong forged ethics just to gain the ever fleeting reward of “momentarily getting ahead.” This lack of ethical leadership has greatly shaped the continuing devaluing of
