Episode Description

Today we are starting a new series on creating a healthy church culture.
Culture is the way that people consciously or unconsciously do life together. And every church has a culture whether they realize it or not. Some of these cultures are healthy and some are not.
In recent years we’ve become somewhat accustomed to news headlines of celebrity pastors being exposed for moral failure or abusive leadership, leaving behind a wake of hurt and pain for everyone involved. And that’s not how things should be. So in this series, we not only want to talk about what an unhealthy church culture might look like but cast a vision for how we as the church can embody a way of life together that, while it may not be perfect, is oriented toward goodness and kindness and love.
