CCL 024 : Ask Me Anything Episode


Earlier this week I sent out a video on twitter and I asked the community if they had any questions for me to answer on my show. I had a great time answering these questions and giving my thoughts regarding these topics.

  1. 4:24 – How do you attract the community surrounding your church?
  2. 19:58 – Who’s your favorite worship leader that you’ve worked with?
  3. 21:55 – How does the relationship between worship leader, music director, and creative director work best?
  4. 31:20 – Being that I work with volunteers and need people, how do you let people go who want to serve but really aren’t up for the task?
  5. 35:20 – Most leaders put the brunt of what’s happening on their shoulders so not to burn out their teams. Is this related to trust or Faith issues?
  6. 41:23 – As a leader, where do your responsibilities begin and end when it comes to your team?
  • If you haven’t already, remember to pick up my new ebook, Creating a New Church Culture: 6 Proven Guidelines for Creating a New Church Culture That Makes a Difference, at In the book I give 6 principles that I discovered when I was building my team when we were making changes within our church. These principles helped guide our team and us as leaders through a bit of a rocky transition. But we came out of it stronger than before and these principles helped get us through. If you’re going through transition or change, or know that you will be, and every church will at some point. You’ll want to pick up your copy.

CCL 016: Reigniting My Passion For What I Do Because of Cliff Ravenscraft

Cliff Ravenscraft is an “unofficial” podcasting mentor of mine. I model a lot of what I do after him and how he podcasts. Cliff has produced over 30 podcast shows and between he and his wife, they’ve produced over 3000 episodes. They’ve produced TV fan podcasts, tech podcasts, on family, spiritual matters, and social media and even a podcast about podcasting.

He recently gave a keynote at a podcast conference held in Dallas called Podcast Movement a few weeks ago. He published the keynote on one of his podcasts. It was so inspirational and motivating that I had to do a podcast on about that talk and share how it effected me and how my podcast will change and get better because of it. That episode of his can be found here.

Thanks, Cliff, for following your passion. You’ve changed my life because you followed your passion. My hope is to do the same for others.
