The Unstuck Group partnered with the Friends denomination to help them get unstuck. They have started to see positive changes happening and are excited about their mission, vision, and future as a denomination. We spoke to one of their leaders, Rick Darden from Friends Church Southwest, about the progress they have made and how it has happened.

Books, conferences and podcasts provide great teaching and models—but are you being coached as a leader?
We’ve been offering coaching networks for 10 years now. The reason we keep offering them is because pastors continue to share stories with us of how their churches have experienced greater health and growth after implementing the things they learned in coaching.
Over the past few weeks, we’ve told you a bit about our Leading An Unstuck Church online course.
As we have worked with churches during our planning process, we have noticed the same 12 core issues come up again and again. But, we believe you can be equipped to win in these areas with some intentional development.
Great Leaders “Equip” More than “Do.”
One of The Unstuck Group’s foundational beliefs that influences how we help churches get unstuck is the principle that churches should fill leadership roles with equippers, not doers. It’s laid out clearly for us in Ephesians 4.
“Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.” – Winston Churchill
If you’ve ever taken a chance, you’ve inevitably failed. And as you probably know, failure is not negative in itself — it’s how you handle it that matters. The best way to move past failure is to learn why it happened, and what you can do to prevent it in the future.
At The Unstuck Group, we work with hundreds of churches each year. We observe a lot of different types of leaders, teams, structures and methods. However, many of these leaders have something in common—something we find concerning.
