Do You Lead with a Scarcity Mentality? | The Leadership Unstuck Podcast

The phrase “scarcity mentality” often applies to the way we think about money, resources or opportunity. But there’s another way churches get caught in it.

Leading from a scarcity mentality about volunteers can get your church stuck. Everyone is competing for people’s time. Instead of only focusing on how volunteers can fill spots in your church, what would happen if you empowered them to impact the world with their gifts and abilities everyday?

In this episode of The Leadership Unstuck Podcast, I talk to Gavin Adams, lead pastor of Woodstock City Church and a ministry consultant for The Unstuck Group, about what a scarcity mentality looks like in the local church and how it can stunt growth.


In this episode, you will discover:

  • Practical ways to recognize if you are leading from a scarcity mentality.

  • How to inspire your church volunteers to fulfill their calling in the world.

  • The importance of valuing the growth of the global Church over the growth of your local church.
