Bad Economy + Bad Decisions = Disaster

I continue to hear of a lot of pastors and church leaders making bad decisions because the economy is bad. If you make bad decisions when the economy is good, you may be able to ride it out with minimal effects.  But if you make bad decisions when the economy is bad, disaster is almost certain.

Before you make any major (or minor) decision at your church based on the potential impact of the troublesome economy can I beg you to listen to my latest podcast? You can listen for free by clicking here:


Share this podcast with your elders, deacons and key leaders in your church.  You have my permission to rip it to CD or share it in whatever way is most convenient.

I hope this helps!
