In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins is joined by Daniel Im, former 5LQ cohost and senior associate pastor at Beulah Alliance Church, and Kevin Peck, lead pastor at Austin Stone. They discuss the following questions:
- What is your best ministry story so far?
- What has realigning your staff looked like?
- What are the best practices that have come out of this situation?
- What tools and frameworks are you using?
- How important is it for church leaders to stay emotionally healthy? How are you doing that?
“We have three times as many people in Alpha as we would normally have at this time of year.”
“Generosity has not stopped and our people, candidly, are leading us as much as we are leading them.”
“We want people to help in a new digital world that’s not digital by preference, but by necessity.”
“In order to preserve management structures, we took whole teams and assigned them to one of those tasks.”
“We’ve seen a lot of energy coming out of people being assigned to do new work for a while.”
“We started off with the rallying cry of these two phrases: How are we going to be the church? And how are we going to look to Jesus?”
“Ask one of the accountants in your church to help do some scenario planning.”
“Go after the things that you know you can do and that you know people need right now.”
“Are we pushing people toward being more faithful or toward being more consumeristic?”
