Thanks for joining us on Season 3 of The Flourishing Culture Podcast , brought to you by The Best Christian Workplaces Institute. You’ll learn how to build a flourishing workplace culture that drives the ministry impact of your organization, your church, or your company, brought to you by the Best Christian Workplaces Institute. Now here’s your host, BCWI president, Al Lopus.
Over the course of over 20 years helping equip hundreds of organizations to improve the health of their culture, leaders will often ask this question: “Can you give us ideas to rapidly improve our culture?”
Many healthy-to-flourishing culture turnarounds come about through months, even years of good, hard work. Still, there are times when you can accelerate your progress to improve the health of your culture.

Today, I’m very excited for you to meet two ministry leaders who in fact found a way to accelerate the transformation of their culture’s health—and the results were tremendous.
In fact, their improvement is one of the greatest improvements in the 15-year history of BCWI clients that have dramatically increased the health of their culture in just one year between taking their first and second annual Employee Engagement Survey. Their story just might be the springboard you need to catapult the health of your culture and see the positive results sooner than later.
My guests, today, on the Flourishing Culture Podcast are Paul Richardson, the President and Michael Joshua, the Vice President of Finance, for Bible League Canada in Grimsby, Ontario.
The purpose of Bible League Canada is to:
“Do all we can to bring the Living Word of God into the
hands of people around the world, because the world
needs the Living Word of God more than anything else.”
To appreciate this ambitious, compelling work, you need to hear the inside story of Bible League Canada’s culture. And the two people who can tell it are here with me.
We ensured our team members could share what was on their heart–without any fear of reprisal.”
