    The Why and What of CQ (Cultural Intelligence)

    You know about IQ… and your emotional intelligence is EQ. But what about your CQ?

    When it comes to overcoming cross-cultural tensions, we’ve been self-diagnosing and guessing at remedies for far too long... Yes, it’s long past time for organizations (like yours) to take a more informed and intentional approach. By first assessing and then improving your team’s CQ, your church or faith-based nonprofit can better walk and work with others of varying cultural backgrounds. Learn more about how CQ training can help your organization understand where it is and how to improve its cultural intelligence on this episode, the Season 1 finale of Mosaix Today with Rachel & Mark.

    The Why and What of Church Economics

    The Why and What of Church Economics

    Tithes and offerings alone are no longer enough to provide for the needs of the local church, enable pastors to pursue opportunities, or sustain long-term ministry impact. Growing financial burdens on the middle class, marginal increases in contributions to religious organizations, shifting generational attitudes toward giving, and changing demographics are having a negative impact on church budgets. Given that someday local churches may be required to pay taxes on the property they own and/or lose the benefit of soliciting tax-deductible gifts, the time to pivot is now.  In this episode, Rachel and Mark discuss principles from Mark's seminal work, The Coming Revolution in Church Economics. (Baker Books, 2019)
