EPISODE #69 – Leading Self, Others and Team in Pursuing The Kingdom of God

Replant Bootcamp
EPISODE #69 - Leading Self, Others and Team in Pursuing The Kingdom of God
/

Bob and Jimbo spend time breaking down one of the 6 Irreducible minimums, Pursuing the Kingdom of God via the PITO Leadership model from the Officer Development School of the US Air Force. Yeah, we know it sounds kinda well…..just give it a listen, we promise you’ll laugh and be informed.

Personally: spiritual practices that bring about the rule and reign of God in your life.

Interpersonally: making disciples in the context of relationships in everyday life.

Team: consider those with whom you led ministry, are they growing spiritually and are we functioning as the body of Christ? Are we surrendering our agenda to the Lord’s agenda?

Organizationally: are we as a church pursuing Kingdom principles and priorities rather than simply just doing the same old same.

Happy New Year from the boot camp boys! We hope it’s off to a great start for you and your church. In today’s episode Wesley Lewis, owner and creative director of OneEighty.digital (our exclusive, illustrious and awesome podcast sponsor) stops by to explain how COVID19 has changed the internet.  And….you’ll also learn a couple things about the boot camp bros…

Now, to the important topic: How Covid Changed the Internet.

  • Just about everyone-we mean everyone is streaming their worship services
  • There has been a 20-30% increase in web traffic
  • The web is the front door of the Church
  • Desktop and Devices (smart TV) are growing in usage over mobile devices
  • Getting information out quickly is imperative
  • You can’t rely on one platform (email, text, facebook, webpage)
  • Your webpage has to updated every week-you can’t replace with social media
  • Interaction is key-you must have a response form or direct your audience

What are the current website trends?

  • A shift to function over form-finding info, navigation has to be EASY.
  • Embedding your livestream b/c many people don’t have social media.
  • Online Giving, Contact forms and calls to action

With everyone online a lot of people are struggling with screen fatigue, how can we address that?

  • Extend the time of interaction before and after your livestream
  • Offer ways to interact personally (analog via calls, texts etc)
  • Provide questions, downloadable resources for your audience.

EPISODE #64 – COVID CHRISTMAS OUTREACH

Replant Bootcamp
EPISODE #64 - COVID CHRISTMAS OUTREACH
/

Don’t let COVID crash your Christmas plans! Today the guys break down some ways they are considering busting through the COVID19 Blues and making the best of what can be done for outreach at Christmas time. Check this one out for some hope, help and encouragement and of course a few laughs!

How can you make the best of the Covid regulations?

  • Take your context into account-do what you can do, don’t get depressed by what others can do
  • Get creative – but know your limitations
  • Do something rather than doing nothing
  • Consider singing/caroling for those who are homebound
  • You might try a Christmas “Adam” service (the day before Christmas Eve)

But what if you can’t do anything at all? Like no public gathering, no public events etc.

  • Make phone calls to people who are part of your church family
  • Write notes-hand written cards mean a lot. Check out the felt app
  • Consider helping or serving at shelters

You might just have to dust off something that seems like it won’t work, something from the past. We encourage you to try something.  Take your five loaves and two fish and give it to God and see what he will make of it.

EPISODE #61 - PLANNING DURING A PANDEMIC
/

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and the guys talk about their favorite “dish” but then get down to business and talk about how to plan during a pandemic. Check it out and, don’t forget to enter the Replant Bootcamp Ball Cap giveaway.

Some things to consider as you think about planning:

  • What type of planner are you?
  • You can overplan and also underplan-try to find that flexible middle
  • COVID19 has pretty much wiped out our long range plans
  • Don’t be defeated by all the restrictions-get creative and think outside of the box in terms of planning
  • Consider short cycle planning: 3-6-9 months at a time
  • The goal is not to get back to normal-start over and ask; “What is the best possible way for us to make disciples who make disciples who impact our community for the Gospel?”
  • Adjust to the moment and the culture you find yourself in right now
  • Do what you can do regardless of size, keep it simple
