We all get stuck in our brokenness and, when we don’t address it, broken becomes our new normal. We stop seeing our own limits, our flaws, our areas of unhealthiness; and instead of seeking healing, we just continue in our brokenness. The same is true of churches and church staffs.
Recently, Tim Knighton of Shively Christian Church sat down with me to share how this is true in his own ministry. HGC recently conducted a consultation at Shively and the church entered a covenant. Tim is their Worship Minister and received assessments in the course of their HGC Consultation. In his debrief, the HGC team identified several blind spots and lags within his leadership style and wiring and then asked the question, “How would you like to deal with this?”
This question set Tim on a journey to be a better leader with his team, within the staff, with his congregation and at home.
