EP 123 - PRAYING TOGETHER
/

Welcome back Bootcampers! In this EP we welcome Replanter Evan Skelton back to the bootcamp to talk about praying together as a congregation.  How can prayer go from something you do (and maybe do awkwardly) to becoming a vital part of the life of your church?  Listen in as Bob and Evan discuss the following:

  • Start intentionally developing a culture of prayer
  • Preach an annual sermon series on prayer
  • Recommend and provide resources to your congregation
  • Incorporate prayer into the worship gathering
  • Celebrate the victories gained in prayer (not just answers to prayer)

Thanks Evan! We’d love to hear from you and how you’re developing a culture of prayer in your congregation.

EP 122 - THE REPLANT RESOURCE HUB
/

This EP comes at you from the ATL as the Bootcamp bros were with their colleagues from the North American Mission Board.  Joining us for this EP are Andy Addis, Pastor @ Crosspoint Church, Hutchinson KS, Kyle Bueermann, Replant Team member, NAB Podcaster, guitar player and coordinator of the Replant HUB-a resource for specifically for the Rural Church.

The HUB is an online place which distributes digital content to churches in need of sermons and worship.

We’re really really pumped to hear about this great resource coming in March for churches in need.

Why the HUB? There a significant number of churches in the rural areas who are stuck, have a difficult time finding a pastor, need worship resources and struggle to get them. The content of the HUB is totally free and provided by Content Producing Churches who willingly give what they have away.

Who is the HUB for?

  • Rural churches needing worship and sermon content
  • Pastors in need of a break or looking to add content to their teaching times (Sunday/Wednesday Night)
  • The Church who is without a pastor
  • Churches who find themselves isolated or at a great distance from resources
  • AMS/DOM leaders who serve churches in need

What about worship? Yes! The HUB offers worship content from a variety of artist, one of which is Nathan Drake from Reawaken Hymns.

Sign up to be among the first to experience all the HUB has to offer.

Stay tuned to hear more about the HUB and all the great resources coming from the Replant Team of the North American Mission Board.

EP 121 - CHARACTERISTICS OF A GODLY LEADER : HUMILITY
/

They bootcamp boys are back talking about the importance of being a godly leader. You’ve probably heard the refrain-everything rises and falls on Leadership-we agree but it’s not always the kind of leadership one might think. We take time to talk about the characteristics of a godly leader which we believe are primary in helping a church, which needs to be Replanted or Revitalized, move forward.

5 Characteristics of Godly Leadership

  • Humility
  • Integrity
  • Respect
  • Empathy
  • Goodwill

Remember – the change a church needs is first spiritual before it is strategic or structural.

What are the specific characteristics of a humble godly leader?

  • Self-awareness
  • Healthy biblical identity
  • Holy contentment
  • God-grounded confidence
  • Promotion and edification of others

Book recommendations:

Facing the Leviathan  by Mark Sayers

The Posture of a Godly Leader by Mark Hallock

Stay tuned as we continue to explore the characteristics of a godly leader in future episodes.

Don’t miss this great event. Am I a Replanter? February 18-19, 2022 in New Orleans at the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Registration closes this week.

EP 119 – DEVELOPING A RULE OF LIFE

Replant Bootcamp
EP 119 - DEVELOPING A RULE OF LIFE
/

As 2021 comes to a close the guys get down to talking about developing a “Rule of Life” as they look to improve their personal lives spiritually, relationally, recreationally and professionally. As you are considering how the coming year will be different for you, we encourage you to grab a notebook or notepad and get down to the serious business of considering how 2022 will be different for you by developing your own rule of life.

A rule of life is a schedule and set of practices and relational rhythms that help us create space in our busy world for us to be with Jesus, become like Jesus, and do what Jesus did—to live “to the full” ( John 10v10) in his kingdom, and in alignment with our deepest passions and priorities.  –from Practicing the Way, John Mark Comer

Here are some of the highlights:

  • A rule is a set of ordered practices – not a bunch of restrictions
  • If you are not enjoying life, not accomplishing what you believe would honor God and bless others-you are a good candidate for developing a rule of life
  • The elements of a rule of life can be simple-we recommend you consider City Church’s approach.
    • S – Sabbath
    • A – Abiding in Christ
    • L – Loving Community
    • T – Training

Here a few links and resources mentioned in this episode

EP 117 – MANAGING YOUR TIME

EP 117 - MANAGING YOUR TIME
/

Well the boys open up with some fun Christmas banter and then get down to the serious business of talking about Time and Task Management.  Wait….don’t bail out, stick with us and we’ll make it fun for you and, we’ll give you some helpful advice for getting your stuff together for the coming year.

Some helpful things to note:

  • Everyone is different-there is not one cookie cutter approach that works for everyone
  • Let your yes be yes and your no be no – don’t overcommit, over promise and under deliver
  • Working on your time management is worth the time it takes
  • Know the warning signs that you are not managing time well: dropped commitments, missed responsibilities, forgotten appointments, frustrated coworkers/supervisors, lack of overall success and productivity.

Some Principles from Raynor’s book

  1. The word before work-start your day in God’s word!
  2. Let your yes be yes – be a person of integrity.
  3. Dissent from the Kingdom of noise – turn off the news/distractions and other noise.
  4. Prioritize your yes – what really matters?
  5. Eliminate all hurry

What are your time management strategies?  We’d love to hear from you.

EP 115 – No Shame in Your Game

EP 115 - No Shame in Your Game
/

The boys have been kicking it in the Big Easy for the past few days doing some training for Replant and eating their way through some fine NOLA cuisine.  JimBo finally paid the bet debt by donning the Hog Hat. After the pleasantries they get down to discussing how shame plays a part in keeping Replanters isolated, separated and struggling.

Here are some of the quick insights:

  • Your identity is not tied to your success
  • God’s approval is not tied to your success
  • The Gospel frees us to be confident in Christ, no matter what happens
  • Often God allows us to struggle and develop a limp to humble us and make us more usable in his service
  • Every church struggles somewhere
  • Success is faithfulness

Are you struggling with shame? Do you need a safe place to talk?  Give our friends at the Pastor Hotline a call, it’s free, confidential, and available to serve you.  Call 1-844-PASTOR1
