EPISODE #74 – TRUST THE LORD TO BUILD THE CHURCH

EPISODE #74 - TRUST THE LORD TO BUILD THE CHURCH
/

The guys are wrapping up their discussion on the Six Irreducible Minimums for 2021 and offer some insights on the frigid cold weather, valentines dining with your spouse, year-round-shorts guy, and Jimbo helps clear up Bob’s misunderstanding of  “King Cakes”  and then they get down to talking about why we need to depend upon the Lord to build his church.

This can be a difficult one for us-especially as the normal measurements of success ebb and flow, rise and fall.

  • Set your mind on the truth that regardless what happens–Jesus builds his church
  • The normal measurements are important (attendance, buildings, budgets) but they are not only measurements that are important. “Numbers aren’t everything-but they are something.”
  • Do the work of ministry: Pursuing God’s Kingdom, Preaching, Equipping, Discipling, Engaging the Community and then let God do his work at building the church.
  • Focus on your “role” or “job” as the pastor there for that season. Some plow, some plant, other water and the Lord is the one who brings the harvest!

EPISODE #71 – EQUIP LEADERS

Replant Bootcamp
EPISODE #71 - EQUIP LEADERS
/

Bob gets honest about his disdain for Tom Brady, Jimbo has a Chiefs fan in the house and we get down to discussing why equipping your people for ministry is not only a central part of your calling but a joy.  Check out the highlights below and consult the show notes for details.

The PITO lens: Personal, Interpersonal, Team, Organizational

Don’t fall into the trap of doing ministry just because you are a single staff leader. We are called to equip the saints for the work of ministry.

Personally

  • evaluate your motives
  • check your definitions of success

Interpersonally

  • make disciples-identify spiritual giftings and calling
  • Discipleship and serving are for everyone, leadership is for a few

Team

  • involve other leaders in helping you equip others in the church
  • don’t be the “lid” by limiting equipping to yourself

Organizationally

  • have an intentional strategy, process and plan
  • think broader than your context and your church, develop kingdom leaders
