Why Staff Health Is a Blind Spot for Most Lead Pastors | The Leadership Unstuck Podcast

The health of a church begins with the health of its team. Unfortunately, I’ve found most lead pastors aren’t thinking about staff health on a regular basis. In this episode of The Leadership Unstuck Podcast, I talk with Ryan Stigile and Amy Anderson about span of care, healthy pace of life in ministry, and other practical steps to grow a healthy team.

Churches often think they are stuck for a myriad of valid reasons, but in reality the health of the team is actually what is chiefly holding them back. This is why it is important to understand how to create a healthy team, how to gauge the health of the team, and how to recognize an unhealthy culture as it’s developing.

In this episode, you will discover:

  • The key indicators of an unhealthy staff culture.

  • Next steps you can take to ensure that staff have a healthy pace of life.

  • How to set clear goals to reduce ministry silos.
