The Leadership Unstuck Podcast: Are Your Services Too Predictable?


In this episode of The Leadership Unstuck Podcast, I talk to Gabe Kolstad, Lead Pastor of Westside Community Church in Beaverton, Oregon about the creative process and how to make church services less predictable.

New things are often uncomfortable. It’s easier to do what we’ve always done and hope, somehow, the results will be different in the future. But it takes risk and intentionality to create remarkable moments that will connect people to your weekend services.

In this episode, you will discover:

  • Reasons why churches tend to get stuck in a rut.
  • How to walk through the creative process and who to involve.
  • Practical ways to successfully move beyond the routine and add life to your weekend services.
