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.

For many organizations having a majority of your employees work from home is a new challenge. This new environment caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, has challenged leaders to learn new ways of leading their virtual workplaces.

Do you feel discouraged because the realities of life have caused you to be disillusioned? Well, maybe you feel cynical. We've seen visionaries succumb to cynicism in these times, or at least cause them to coast. Today, our guests provide hope for us by calling this disillusionment a gift. Listen in as they talk about moving past the false hope of idealism to discover true Christian hope.

Those of us in leadership at Christian organizations feel a call from God to serve, and also a vision for how our organization can make a difference in the world. That sense of vision and passion motivates our work. But what do you do when idealism hits unmet expectations and painful experiences? How do you lead forward through difficulties? Our guests today will give us insight into this important issue as we look for hope that will endure. 

I’m delighted to welcome Chris Horst, chief advancement officer, and Peter Greer, CEO of HOPE International. In their leadership, they have been committed to working with BCWI for a flourishing workplace at HOPE International. Peter and Chris have recently co-authored a book – The Gift of Disillusionment: Enduring Hope for Leaders After Idealism Fades.

Do you feel your organization’s approach to strategic planning is inflexible and ineffective? Do you feel like you’re missing untapped opportunities? Well, listen in as today’s guest suggests a new counterintuitive approach to traditional planning, an approach that shows you how unexpected opportunities may be the key to your future success.

There is a leadership adage that says, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” But what if there’s a different paradigm of leadership that embraces the need to be flexible rather than strictly adhering to a plan? Certainly, the future we lead into will not look like the past, which impacts our ability to plan. Today’s podcast might challenge our thinking and practices, but it will also give us insight into opportunities and possibilities that God brings our way.     

I’m delighted to welcome Roger Parrott, who is the President of Belhaven University in Jackson, Mississippi. Roger has deep experience in leadership in college settings. He also is the author of several leadership books. Today we’ll focus on what he calls Opportunity Leadership, based on his recent book by that title.

Would you ever ask yourself the question, how would a flourishing workplace culture impact the performance of my team or my organization? Well, today, we'll talk with two business leaders who outline the steps they've taken to build a flourishing workplace facilitating their bank's growth from startup to one billion in assets in just fourteen years.

Along with serving Christian ministries, we work with marketplace organizations to assess employee engagement and culture. In these organizations, excellence is a result of strong values and integrity in their leadership. If you’re a Christian leader in a marketplace organization, how do you value your employees and offer them opportunities for uplifting growth? We’ll explore flourishing in a business setting on today’s podcast.  

I’m delighted to welcome Laura Jones and Shon Cass, senior leaders with Texas Security Bank. This bank has been serving businesses in Texas since 2008 and has been intentional about developing a flourishing culture for its employees. Let's meet them and learn about how they are committed to growing in excellence and shared values in this marketplace organization.  

Welcome, Laura and Shon.
