Summary

Learn the secrets to building and maintaining a healthy, productive, and unified ministry team that sticks together for the long haul.

Serving as a church leader can be a tough calling. Whatever your role, odds are you've known your share of the frustration and disillusionment that comes with turf battles, conflicting vision, and marathon meetings. You may have asked yourself, "How did it get this way"?

With 20 years of front-line ministry experience, Larry Osborne understands congregations (as baffling as they can sometimes be) and he know how the best-intentioned teams can become disrupted and disunified. With this audiobook, he aims to shore up the foundation of a healthy team - what does a unified and thriving church leadership look like and how can it be achieved?

Sticky Teams is divided into three main sections, dealing with key aspects of what it takes to develop long-term, efficient harmony:

  • Landmines and Roadblocks exposes the organizational structures, policies, and traditions that can unintentionally sabotage even the best of teams. You'll discover strategies for managing conflicts and getting around obstacles.
  • Equipped for Ministry explores what it takes to get everyone on the same page and headed in the same direction. Sections deal with practical tips for board, staff, and congregational alignment.
  • Communication examines what it takes to keep everyone on the same page, with a special emphasis on some especially dicey areas and issues of ministry, such as conversations about money.

Whatever your situation; from start-up phase, to mid-sized, to megachurch, Osborne has been there. As the pastor of North Coast Church, he's walked his board, staff, and congregation through the process of becoming more genuinely unified, and, because of that, better able to carry out God's design for his church.

With warm encouragement and insight, he shares expertise that most pastors and leadership teams learn only from long experience: How to invest the time to create church harmony and how to lead so that unity is maintained long-term.

Very good church leadership book

Larry has clearly worked through many mistakes to arrive at the biblical wisdom in his book. While I may not agree with every perspective, overall it reads like a Spirit-lead body of helpful insights. Highly recommend.
