A weekly resource to help you and your team grow as leaders in both ministry and life

Each week we provide The FrontStage BackStage Weekly Toolkit to help you maximize every episode and grow personally in your life and ministry.

Use these questions in your regular staff meetings to guide your conversation as you invest in the growth of your ministry leaders.

Our team provides a full-text transcript of every conversation so you can pass along snippets, post tweets, create presentations to share, or use in whatever way you find most helpful in developing your ministry leaders.

Shareable Video Links 

Join the discussion on YouTube with the video links provided for every episode. Have a question about something that was mentioned? Leave a comment and we will do our best to provide an answer. Be sure to share the video with your ministry team before your regular staff meetings so they can watch and be prepared for your discussion. Invite your team to subscribe to the YouTube channel so they receive each week's episode.

Additional Resource Links 

Throughout each conversation with our special guests, a variety of resources and tools are discussed. Each week we collect these links together so you and your team can easily find what is mentioned or referenced. We are also often able to provide links for you to connect directly with our guests and their ministries. At times, guests have a special resource available only to our audience, and we always pass that link along when available.

Shareable Audio Links

Listen to each week's conversation on-the-go from your favorite podcast platform. Share the podcast episode with your ministry team each week, as well, in case they prefer to listen rather than watch. You can encourage them to subscribe to the podcast so they receive it automatically each week. Again, be sure they receive it prior to your regular staff meeting so they are ready to discuss the topic.

Shareable Social Graphics

Every week our team creates social graphics that you can share on your favorite social platforms. These graphics come directly from the conversations with our guests and are designed to encourage, equip, and inspire. Feel free to post them on your church social accounts, your personal accounts, or use them as graphics in your communications.
