Church leaders are tired of stressing out about:
How many people showed up this week?
How much did people give this week?
How are we gonna maintain all this?
These are not… what you signed up for!
These are not… supposed to consume all your energy!
These are not… why the church exists!
Healthy church leaders long to lead a church that cares about:
A message that feels like good news for you, your people, and the world.
Participation with God in the healing of the world.
Life and leadership from a place of deep union with Jesus.
As a church leader…
You desire to bring healing and wholeness to the world.
These six practices of a flourishing church will help you do that.
Are you afraid your ministry isn't making much of a difference?
Are you concerned that your people aren't growing in their faith?
Are you uneasy about the spiritual health of your ministry?
I know how hard church leadership can be.
Here’s the good news…
You don’t have to flounder. You can feel confident knowing that your leadership and your ministry are making a difference!
- Your Leadership
- Your Team
- Your Ministry
Invite me to speak to your team, your church, or even for one-on-one coaching.
I’ll help you and your organization live your calling so that, together with God, you can heal the world.
In an ever-changing world, it’s really hard to know how to be a church that makes a difference. When we’re at a loss, church leaders often imitate other churches.
But that doesn’t work because every church’s context is different!
Flourishing churches don’t imitate other churches. But healthy church leaders do help them engage in these seven practices.
How many of these are you doing?
“Markus Watson knows from experience that without a compelling vision, churches instinctively turn inward. But without the capacity to trust each other as a healthy and courageous community, the most enthusiastic mission-driven congregation settles for becoming a spiritual country club for the baptized. An excellent and engaging communicator and a wise and resilient coach, Markus Watson is the kind of consultant, speaker, coach and leader who can inspire a community and its leadership to be their very best selves.”
Dr. Tod Bolsinger, author of Canoeing the Mountains and Vice President and Chief of Fuller Leadership Platform at Fuller Theological Seminary
“Markus is an outstanding teacher, group facilitator, and peer coach. His teaching style is upbeat, light-hearted, and disarming even when approaching topics that stretch and challenge his audience. I highly recommend him.”
Pastor Jason Coker, Senior Pastor of Oceanside Sanctuary
“Markus is a leader of profound character who has a passion to serve the Body of Christ and the world around him. He is a gifted communicator and able to clearly convey substantive thought in a way that is easy to comprehend. It is always a pleasure to work with him.”
Micah Lunsford, Director and Founder of Resonance: A Theological Journal
“Markus is a solid preacher who shares God’s word in practical ways that people can apply to everyday life. He enjoys developing leaders by unpacking the God-given dreams placed inside them that need to get out to benefit the world. He loves guiding leaders through a dynamic process of discovery and development through. I encourage you to contact Markus and begin the journey together!”
Dr. Nate Landis, Founder and President of Urban Youth Collaborative, San Diego
“Markus leads those around him with a passion that is uplifting, encouraging, and unparalleled. His ability to articulate his stories of real life experiences, intertwined with his messages, keep you leaning forward in your seat, engrossed in his words, wanting to hear more.”
