Serving as a church leader can be a tough assignment. Whatever your role, odds are you’ve known your share of the frustration, conflict, and disillusionment that comes with silly turf battles, conflicting vision, and marathon meetings. No doubt, you’ve asked yourself, “How did it get this way?” With practical and accessible wisdom, Larry Osborne explains how it got this way. He exposes the hidden roadblocks, structures, and goofy thinking that sabotage even the best intentioned teams. Then with time-tested and proven strategies he shows what it takes to get (and keep) a board, staff, and congregation on the same page. Whatever your situation; from start-up phase, to mid-sized, to megachurch, Osborne has been there. As the pastor of North Coast Church he’s walked his board, staff, and congregation through the process. Now with warm encouragement and penetrating insights he shares his secrets to building and maintaining a healthy and unified ministry team that sticks together for the long haul.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/12/2014

    " I really enjoy osborne's humorous writing style. This book is intended for lead pastors and has some good ideas in moving on from paradigms that don't work and people that are cranky. Best for pastors in congregationalist churches. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark Clements | 7/24/2012

    " It should have been called Sticky Church 2--there is some help (via anecdotes) regarding staffs but it seems more about how to run a church on a business model. Probably more helpful for those in similar style/size churches (mega-sized). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gene Cornett | 7/19/2012

    " Excellent book. Probably am going to ask some other folks to read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jamie | 10/3/2010

    " Alot of good wisdom. Seemed geared to larger churches, but the general principles could be fleshed out in smaller churches. Maybe. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donald | 7/14/2010

    " I am finding this book to be an excellent read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Randal | 4/13/2010

    " Predictable. Has some good things to remember, but written mostly for the large church or large-thinking church and board. Worth reading quickly. If you cut out the stories and just read the subject titles you'll get most of the needed information. "
