APRIL: HEALTHY CHURCH STAFF CULTURE
How would you describe your church office environment? Is it relatively easy to get work done? Does the staff work together well, and do you feel supported by your pastors?
In our day-to-day lives, it’s really easy to get lost in the weeds of bulletins and emails and websites and Facebook posts, but one of the most important aspects of our work is our role in establishing a healthy work culture.
Yes, senior pastors generally have the most influence in establishing a church culture, but you have more impact than you might think. There are tons of little things you can do each day that will help your office run smoothly and encourage healthy relationships with your peers.
Take advantage of our collection of resources all about healthy church culture this month. And (as if you needed a reminder), there is a pretty big day coming up. Don’t forget about our Easter resource page that has all kinds of helpful content, including social media graphics and sharable videos from Lee Strobel.
Leading a Healthy Culture (Q&A with Dr. Kevin Peck)
Church communicators generally aren’t at the top of the church org chart, but that doesn’t mean you’re not a leader. You have significant influence over your team, your volunteers, and your peers, and you can help shape the work environment in your church office.
Dr. Kevin Peck is the lead pastor at Austin Stone Community Church in Austin, Texas. He has seen God grow the church from a small gathering of young people to a city-loving church of over 7,000. He co-wrote the book Designed to Lead, which is all about developing a culture of healthy leadership development in the church.
Kevin has some very helpful and encouraging insight on leadership, the creative process, and how pastors and communicators can work together to improve staff culture and make an impact on our communities. Don’t miss his practical advice, and we think you’ll resonate with his feelings about Comic Sans and Papyrus.
