- It will be personal. Highly practical. Intensive. Relational. Collaborative.
- Think less conference or workshop–and more hands-on graduate study program.
- We will drill down on building teams, hiring and firing, developing a healthy staff culture, leading change, budget and money issues, communication strategies and more.
It’s not going to be cheap or easy. It will involve an investment of money and time, and a commitment to travel (Granger isn’t “on the way” to anywhere). But for those who join me, I promise it will be an experience that will enhance your ministry and take you to the next level of personal leadership. Here are some comments from my most recent group that just finished up last month…
“It was like getting three masters-level courses on being an Executive Pastor.” (Dale Roddy, Crossroads Church, Oakdale, PA)
“The leadership resources that Tim provided and led makes me feel like I jumped a few years in the process of development.” (Billy Creech, Lake Center Bible Church, Portage, MI)
“Without the opportunity to learn from the workshop sessions and the other pastors, it would have taken me nearly a decade (of successes and failures) to learn it by experiencing it first-hand. This saved us money by a factor of at least 10!” (Anonymous)
- “The full disclosure and transparency shown to us was very much appreciated. Add to that the networking with other Executive Pastors, and the Granger resources that were given to us, and the entire experience has been the best investment to my growth since being in ministry!” (Tim Hastings, Oakridge Baptist Church, Salisbury, MD)
If you are interested, there is good news and bad news. The good news: This is the first day I’m talking about it publicly. If you act quickly, there is a good chance you can be involved. But here is the bad news: In past years, the slots have filled up very quickly, and so we added a second network to an additional 12 leaders. In order to balance my time with my family and ministry responsibilities, I will not be adding a second group. There will be only one group this Spring. Once these 12 slots are gone…the network will be closed.

I’m really praying that God will put together an amazing group and can’t wait to see what happens!
Not an executive pastor but still looking for insight and practical wisdom in your area of ministry? Need to be stretched, challenged and encouraged? Good news! If you're involved in communications or connections, we also offer intense, practical and personal training for you. Download the Communications or Connections Strategies Coaching Networks information to find out if either of these is right for you.
Thanks so much for these posts .I always have a hard time of givnig up control on certain areas. Well, most areas. I fight the belief that I can do it better. So I have a hand in a lot of things. I justify it under the blanket of striving for excellence, but I know I have limited the potential of those ministries. Thanks again for the challenge Craig!
