CCM Radio Veteran Lloyd Parker Departs WAY-FM

Chief Operating Officer Lloyd Parker has announced his upcoming departure from WAY-FM. He and his wife Ellen will be relocating to Georgia to be near his daughter Taryn and her family. Parker will continue to work with the ministry during a time of transition, while being available to assist other organizations.

Parker commented, “Ellen and I haven’t been able to live near our kids for over 10 years. The opportunity to be near Taryn opened up this summer and with much prayer decided it was a good time to make the move. Our regret is that our son Rory and his family couldn’t live closer to us. We wish God’s richest blessings for the entire WAY team and ministry. We have very fond memories of this chapter in our lives.”

WAY-FM President & CEO John Scaggs noted, “Lloyd is a joy to work with and know on both a personal and professional level. Just in the last year, Lloyd pulled-off 3 major projects all the while running the WAY operation. It is an understatement to say it is going to hard filling the void Lloyd’s departure creates.  I know I speak for all the WAY team when I say we will miss Lloyd’s daily contribution. I am grateful Lloyd can take what he’s learned and accomplished at WAY, K-LOVE/Air1 and other places and further serve organizations in this next phase of his storied career”.

Wise, Weird & Welcome: Learning and Leading with the Lepers and the Locust Eaters

We’ve all read the same books about teamwork, leadership, communication, and culture that everybody reads. We’ve mastered Maxwell, studied Sanborn, Sinek, and Sun Tzu, and liberally cribbed Collins in aborted attempts to go from good to great, but…

How’s that working out for you? 

What if you left St. Louis with an entirely new lens through which to view and act upon improvements in:

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
