For 14 years, Tony Morgan served on the senior leadership teams of Granger Community Church, NewSpring Church and West Ridge Church. In that season, he started writing about leadership at TonyMorganLive.com, while also authoring books and articles featured by the Willow Creek Association, Catalyst and Pastors.com.
His experience and writing often focused on having a clear strategy for ministry, a word few churches were embracing at the time.
In 2008, he started offering leadership coaching networks for pastors. In these coaching relationships, a theme emerged again and again: Pastors felt stuck. Tony began developing a process to help them get unstuck.
It had to start with an honest assessment of where a church was healthy and unhealthy, and that insight led to the creation of our Ministry Health Assessment. From there, Tony was certified in Paterson Center’s StratOp Process, the foundation for the strategic planning process we now use to serve churches. Knowing that to succeed a plan must be supported with the right structure, our Staffing & Structure Review phase was added.
In 2009, Tony served 10 churches, but more were requesting help getting unstuck than he could serve alone. So, he built a team.
The Unstuck Group has served 200+ churches in the years since, and we continually work to refine and improve our process.
In 2015, we added the Action Phase to help churches build momentum as they execute their plans.
