Do you wonder what it would take to turn a culture from toxic to flourishing? Today, we talk with a leader who did just that.

Today’s podcast touches the heart of why we do what we do at Best Christian Workplaces.  Our conversation is with a leader whose work is all about facilitating the transformation of at-risk kids, aged 5 to 17.   

When he joined the organization, he was faced with fixing a toxic workplace with disengaged employees. Our conversation is about how he moved their workplace from toxic to flourishing. We know it isn’t easy to transform a workplace, but it’s worth the effort when you get to see your employees flourish and deepen their commitment to the mission and vision of your organization, particularly when kids are involved.   

I’m delighted to welcome Ron Riley, Executive Director of Cookson Hills. Ron has been with Cookson Hills, a children’s home in Northeast Oklahoma, now for three years.

Are skinny jeans and fog machines at the heart of your church's growth strategy? Well, who are you turning to for help? And what are the best strategies for growth? Today's show with pastor and author, Jim Cymbala of the Brooklyn Tabernacle, answers your questions. Listen in as he fans the flame to renew your calling to finish the work that you have received.

Serving as a pastor or church leader has never been easy. But recent data show a high level of fatigue and discouragement among pastors – and many are leaving the ministry.  In fact, in a recent survey, Barna Research says that 38% of pastors have thought about quitting full-time ministry in the past year.   

How can you as a pastor or Christian leader find renewed passion for your calling, and regular refreshment, so you aren’t serving on empty? 

Today’s podcast will highlight ways to fan the flame of the calling God has placed in you, so you can continue to serve.  

I’m delighted to welcome Jim Cymbala, Pastor of Brooklyn Tabernacle. Jim has been a pastor for more than 50 years, and along with leading Brooklyn Tabernacle, he has a heart for encouraging and equipping other pastors. His most recent book is Fan the Flame

Leaders we've all been through a few storms these past couple of years and none of us are sure that they're even over. So how do we deal with feelings of anxiety, loneliness, anger, and even fear? Listen in as we talk with a leader and author about how to be focused and energized in our leadership.

Church leaders have come through several difficult years, having to quickly adapt to changing circumstances. Some of you are discouraged, tired, or disappointed and need a fresh vision to move forward. In the midst of this season, we affirm that God is still God, and he still walks with us. In today's episode, we will have an honest conversation about struggles you may face as a leader. My hope is that this time will encourage you with a renewed sense of God’s presence with you.  

I’m delighted to welcome Jarrett Stephens, Senior Pastor of Champion Forest Baptist Church, and the author of The Always God. Jarrett has more than 20 years of ministry experience and is a seasoned leader. He is committed to bringing a message of hope that our God never changes, even when we live through chaotic times.
