Finding Your Phalanx with Pastor Kevin Gerald

Organizational alignment is a consistency of culture throughout the organization. As your church or business grows, alignment becomes more and more difficult, so how do you maintain it?

This week, I have the absolute pleasure to sit down with Pastor Kevin Gerald and discuss all things alignment and culture. He and his wife Sheila pastor Champions Centre in Tacoma, Washington, one of the largest churches in the Pacific Northwest. This is an episode you won’t want to miss!

3 Keys for Team Collaboration

3 Keys for Team Collaboration

As your team grows, collaboration becomes increasingly difficult yet ever so important. With everyone bringing different strengths and perspectives to the table, competition can arise and misunderstandings become more prevalent. Your “why” might be crystal clear, but if it’s not constantly at the forefront of your team’s mind, it could get lost between departments. How do you foster healthy collaboration that moves your vision forward?

Are You Ready to Shift Your Focus?

I firmly believe that the call of every church is to be outsider focused, to make disciples, and to reach the lost of their communities. If you as a church leader want to move in this direction, you and your team need to be solely convinced that this is the direction you are called to go in. You will face opposition and the temptation to settle for what is comfortable. But, if the leadership are together in this and committed to seeing it through, the church has a chance. It takes a team to confidently move forward in this transition. Are you ready?

This concept has huge potential within our churches, so how do we determine our “why?”

Dreamers vs. Visioneers

There is a difference between dreamers and visionaries. A vision is a mental picture of what could be, fuelled by a passion that it must be and dreamers only possess the first part; a mental picture.

Is your team made up of non-committal dreamers or determined visioneers?

6 Steps to Hiring the Best Employees

When hiring, we always want to make sure that we are selecting the right people for the right position. At MyVictory, we have a four-step process that helps us get to know each candidate and determine if they are the best fit. Jim Collins, the author of “Good to Great,” puts it this way, “Get the right people on the bus, the wrong people off the bus, and the right people in the right seats on the bus.” How do we get the right people in the right seats?

This past November we had the opportunity to host Christian music producer, Randy Cox, here at MyVictory. Randy has played a big part in the music careers of many artists such as Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith, and he has been helping us with publishing some of our music. Randy joined us from Nashville to do songwriting workshops with our team and impart his wisdom of the Christian music industry. We learned so much in our time with him and we hope you will be able to do the same through this podcast.
