3 Principles for Strategic Growth

To lead something from good to great takes grit. Despite knowing this, I can often find myself knowing what it takes to get somewhere, but hesitant to move forward.

I’ll lose progress.

I’ll fail.

I’m not sure I’ll still be moving in the right direction.

Instead of taking action, fear takes control, I stay complacent and progress ceases.

Can you relate?

Better Together: An Interview with Brad Jenkins on Church Merger Success

Whenever we work with churches, we are always on the lookout for good stories to share. I recently got to talk with Brad Jenkins of Anthem Church in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. After 10 years of operating as The Gathering Church, Brad and his team merged with Liberty Church to further their reach—which meant Brad went from leading a church of 200 with five staff and one Sunday service time to leading a church of 500 with 12 staff and two services. Six months into the merger, Anthem contacted The Unstuck Group to help them sort out staffing, structure and ministry priorities through our strategic planning process.


Read on to hear about about what Brad and the team learned about leadership through the merger process.

Meetings Do Not Equal Planning

There never seems to be enough time in the day. I might be the only one feeling this way, but something tells me that’s probably not the case. I constantly feel like I am spinning multiple plates, giving them just enough momentum to complete a few more revolutions before I can get my fingers on them again. This may sound a little dramatic, but I think you get the idea.
