If It Ain't Broke...

We either love or hate change. Both perspectives on change can become unhealthy if taken too far. Maybe you feel like you’re in a good season and there’s no need for change. Your team is performing. Your culture seems to be thriving. Why mess that up? As a leader, it’s your job to identify opportunities for growth and improvement. Our pastor, Chris Emmitt, trains our staff to think “if it ain’t broke, tweak it.” This mentality helps us proactively make small changes before big changes become inevitable. This could be anything from simple adjustments to events to modifying a worship service flow. Creating a culture of continual improvement not only grows your team’s threshold for change, but can grow your team’s appetite for excellence.

Seasons of change and transition typically come from two places inside a leader’s heart. One place “this isn’t good enough.” The other is “this could be better.” One builds faith. One builds fear. That doesn’t mean one is right and one is wrong. Leadership isn’t that simple. Emotional intelligence is needed to have healthy motives, reasons, and methods as you lead through change. How you lead in times of change has power to bond or break your team. So lead well!

My life is steadied by three anchors - Jesus, my family, and grilling. If you hang around here, I hope you'll see that to be true, not just an aspiration. You'll probably also see room for improvement in how I relate to all three. I'm a tremendous beneficiary of grace in just about every area of my life. Jesus has been my king for 20 years and for 15 of those I've been serving his church. I couldn't ask for a better job than pastoring. Erica stole my heart 10 years ago and we've been married for 8. So much of our world revolves around our 2 kids, Declan and Adelaide. Erica and I are both on staff at church in the Atlanta, Georgia area called More Life Change.


Speaking Requests

I believe something special happens when we open up God's word. If your church, ministry, or camp is in need of a guest speaker, let's get a conversation started.
