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.

4 Ways to Increase Millennial Giving

I grew up in the church.

Each Sunday, I would sit in the pew, listen to the sermon, watch the offering plate pass around, finish with the Lord’s prayer, and that was my Sunday. I would say that I enjoyed my church, but looking back, one significant aspect was missing:

It was never explained why we give, how we give, or what we give – we just gave.

Multisite Leadership: Key Tools to Be a Great Leader with Paul Alexander

Of all the complexities that come with church leadership, multisite leadership always seems to find it’s way near the top of the list. It requires knowledge of leading the same church in multiple locations, managing communications (internally and externally), establishing a high level of clarity, clearly defining your multisite strategy and much more. While tough, it is loaded with potential to heavily impact your communities, and even regions, to help lead people to Jesus.
