HOW TO FOLLOW GOD IN WORSHIP

By Lisa Hosler

Most Christian leaders worship, but aren’t worship leaders per se. So how do you lead your team to actively honor God when you don’t have a degree in music?

PRAY IT NOW

By Lisa Hosler

How many times have you said to an associate, “I’ll be praying for you,” and went on your way without really doing it? If you’re like me, more than you’d like to admit. But our prayers are an invaluable gift to the people we work with. So as leaders, let’s...

What?! Who would purposely put their weakness on display – especially as a leader? After all, isn’t it best to lead with your strengths? In many instances, yes. But there’s a case to be made for also leading in your weaknesses.  Triple jumping is a great example of literally putting...

HOW TO VALUE EMPLOYEES AS WHOLE PEOPLE

By Lisa Hosler

As leaders, we can have tunnel vision when it comes to our employees – primarily focusing on their time at work. We want it to be effective for our ministries and life-giving for them. But employees are whole people, with lives outside of work, and family-friendly policies will go a...
