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 come with silly turf battles, conflicting vision, and marathon meetings.

With practical and accessible wisdom. Larry Osborne explains how you can get your team back on the same page again. Whatever your situation--from start-up, to midsized, to megachurch--Osbourne has been there. As the pastor of North Coast Church, he's walked his board, staff, and congregation through the process.

STICKY TEAMS exposes the hidden roadblocks, structures, and goofy thinking that sabotage even the best-intentioned teams. Then, with time-tested and proven strategies, he show what it takes to get (and keep) a board, staff, and congregation on the same page, sticking together as a unified, healthy, and dynamic ministry team.
