Publisher's Summary

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.

Very good church leadership book

Larry has clearly worked through many mistakes to arrive at the biblical wisdom in his book. While I may not agree with every perspective, overall it reads like a Spirit-lead body of helpful insights. Highly recommend.

Its neccessary for every church, leader and pastor

I love the idea that I can learn so practically from many pastors in the world. But few can be as clear and as biblical as Larry Osborne in this books. This is worth a course in Seminary for me. Nobody has taught so clearly to my Latin America church reality event though maybe it wasn't written to churches in my culture. I recommend it 100%

church leadership

best book on Church leadership and navigating your staff and board to unity and church health. Must read for every local church pastor, staff and board. Why learn the hard way when you can download wisdom from 30+ years of a master pastor.

One good tool to forming or reforming your church.

I may not agree with some conclusions but overall a good book. This is written well outside of traditional churchiness which I found refreshing.

Excellent guidelines for a rapidly growing church

If you could sum up Sticky Teams in three words, what would they be?

Extremely usable information

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not really.. There was too much too absord in one sitting. Needed to process it slowly.
