Jesus calls us to be all about love. But how do we practically live this out in our workplaces – in what we believe about others, how we treat others, who we hire, and so on?
In January 2014, Cherry Hills Community Church faced the reality of a weakened and toxic staff culture. How did they go from siloed teams, low trust and suspicion of motives among staff members to a “flourishing culture” in the top 10% of churches that have surveyed with BCWI? Here, to tell us about this remarkable transformation is Executive Pastor Rebekah Layton.

How can you make significant changes in your workplace culture? Action planning and follow up is one key element.
One action planning strategy is to designate individuals – called Engagement Champions – who can take ownership for your culture at the departmental level. This is where the rubber really meets the road if you’re serious about building a healthy, flourishing culture.
But not too serious, as today's podcast is not only informative but fun too. First, we're going to introduce the Engagement Champion concept and listen in as Sue Hood from Willow Creek Community Church explains their approach to it. Then we'll hear from Jenn Repaci at Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale as she introduces seven rules and tools to equip and empower Engagement Champions.

"It's great to work in your area of passion, but it can become toxic if you don't have some boundaries." These are the words of today's guest, Dave Ferguson, the Lead Pastor of Community Christian Church, with 10 locations across the Chicagoland area.
Often ministry staff are deeply passionate about their organization's mission, and they're willing to work so hard toward it that life can sometimes get out of balance. Tune in to this conversation to hear the innovative ways Dave and his leadership team are encouraging and even incentivizing healthy habits.
When Community's staff are able to flourish at home, their ministry outcomes have soared as well. The evidence? In 2016, they celebrated more baptisms than ever before.
Dave is the author of five books, including Finding Your Way back to God: Five Awakenings to Your New Life, and his most recent book, Staring Over: Your Life Beyond Regrets.
