Today’s post is the final installment in a series written by Ed Stetzer (VP – LifeWay Research), dealing with unhealthy Christian organizations. Unfortunately this is an issue that many of us have had to, or are currently dealing with. Hopefully these posts can be of help to you, or someone you know.
In the first post Ed described 6 symptoms of an unhealthy organization (read here) and in the second one he discussed what to do if you find yourself in an unhealthy organization (read here). In this third post, Ed looks at what a healthy organization looks like and how an organization can move from unhealthy to healthy.
Previously at the blog, we’ve looked at unhealthy Christian organizations (part one, part two) and the response has been quite surprising. I’ve had calls from numerous Christian leaders telling me that they were printing out copies for their staff… and I’ve had people from more than one organization ask if I was talking about them. To quote Rick Warren, no, “It’s not about you.”
It is about a pattern, and this pattern is both real and widespread. Some organizations really are unhealthier than others, and, unfortunately, I’ve seen it– as you probably have as well. (click here to read entire post)
