We believed Christian-led organizations should be the gold standard as the best, most-effective places to work in the world. Today we discover the DNA of the tremendous and sustainable growth of Life.Church.  Listen in as I talk with Jerry Hurley about the keys to create their healthy, even flourishing culture.

Listen in as he describes the key steps that he took to move his workplace culture to one of the healthiest that we've worked with.

Having a team filled with outstanding talent is a game-changer for any organization. Today, we talk with a couple of culture leaders in a large church who have leveraged their culture to be relentlessly selective in creating a staff that is humble, hungry, and healthy. To learn how listen in!

In 2016, Outreach Magazine named Traders Point Christian Church in Indianapolis, Indiana as one of the "100 Fastest-Growing?Churches?in America." Such growth alone is significant. Yet, there's another reason to celebrate. I call it the hidden story of another kind of growth that can inspire churches everywhereIt’s a story you need to hear.  

With me right now are the two best people I know who are ready to reveal this hidden story. Kristen Miller is Culture & Development Director at Traders Point Christian Church. With Kristen is Emily Hoover, Talent Manager at Traders PointKristen and Emily, welcome to the Flourishing Culture Podcast.

Would you like to be led more by Jesus, live and lead more like Jesus, and lead more to Jesus? Today's podcast is just for you.

Sometimes in life, we can lose our wonder.  It can happen gradually or overnight.  In talking with many Christian leaders struggling through the past year, I hear about a lot of people being exhausted, tired, thinking about retiring early, even quitting. Some have described it as ‘the dark night of the soul’ where there has been an absence of the presence of God in our lives.   

In the next few minutes, I want to give you a new kind of pathway so you can live more like Jesus—and perhaps renew the sense of His presence, especially in your work. And I’ve just the person to take us on this adventure. 

Dr. Steve Brown, President of Arrow Leadership and author of a very timely, engaging book titledJesus Centered: Focusing on Jesus in a Distracted WorldSteve, welcome to the Flourishing Culture Podcast.

Have you ever wondered how important improving your workplace culture is? Well, today our guest says of all the changes that you can make in your organization there's one that matters more than all the others—the culture of your organization. Listen in as this pastor describes how working on cultural health is actually at the core of Christian discipleship for any leader.

One of the things I enjoy most about my job is getting to know innovative leaders that are making a difference for the kingdom.  One of those leaders is Jeff Lockyer, the Lead Pastor at Southridge Community Church in St. Catharines, Ontario in the Niagara Region. 

Jeff has just published a very thoughtful book called Finding Our Way: Reclaiming the First-Century Church in the Twenty-First Century.  It’s a fascinating story of how a church transformed for the next generation.  I particularly like the way Jeff walks his readers through the underlying theology behind some of their decisions, including their focus on workplace culture.  Whether you are a church leader, a leader of a Christian non-profit, or a Christian business leader, you'll find our discussion inspirational.
