EP 134 - CULTIVATING PASSION AND PERSEVERANCE
/

The boys are back in their normal domiciles and in today’s EP they break down an important subject related to developing the ability to cultivate passion in your work as a Replanter.

Passion is white hot flame and red glowing embers.

Here’s a quote to kick us off: “Light yourself on fire with passion, and people will come from miles to watch you burn.” — John Wesley

Our good friend Mark Hallock adds this: “People long to follow passionate leaders in the church, in the same way that heat-seeking missiles follow fire. . . As for those of us called to revitalize a dying church, passion is a priceless aspect of our leadership.”

This exhortation from Romans 12:11; “Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord”

Know the difference between contrived passion and cultivated passion.

  • Passion is contagious
  • Passion inspires hope
  • But we have to be passionate about the right things
    • Gospel
    • God’s Word
    • God’s Bride
    • The lost
    • Our community

What do you do when the Passion is gone? How do you cultivate passion?

  • Get Clarity-is your season of ministry in that location over? Is God calling you to continue?
  • Cultivate and nurture your soul by getting into God’s word, praying and practicing solitude.
  • Get an outside opinion and perspective from a trusted friend, mentor, leader.
  • Take something off of your plate, you might be out of energy from overwork.

Episode #44 - The HANDS of a Replanter: Pastoral Grit, Resourceful Generalist, and Initiative
/

It’s hot in Florida and Missouri, Jimbo is another year older and we’re continuing the discussion related to the 13 Characteristics of a Replanter.  Grab a glass of sweet tea or lemonade and join us as we look at the “Hands” Quadrant and discuss: Pastoral Grit, Resourceful Generalist and Initiative.

 

Pastoral Grit: Pastoral Grit is the ability to persevere through the inevitable difficulties of replanting and remain steadfast to shepherd the church forward as God uses the Replanter to turn a dying church around.

Resourceful Generalist: the ability to speak into and lead in a variety of areas in order to lead the church well. There is no task beneath him.

Initiative: The replant pastor with Initiative leads the church with a passion rooted in biblical convictions and demonstrated in a bias for action. He proactively works to avoid problems, as well as finding or creating new opportunities.

 

Check out the Am I a Replanter? Online Preview event Monday, July 27th at 7-9pm CST over at the ChurchReplanters Facebook page.

Episode #24 - ?Jason Rumbough Boots on the Ground Highlight?
/

**Show Note** Early Wednesday morning East Nashville TN was it with a severe tornado. Many business and homes in the area were impacted, 24 lives were lost and the community is in great need. Jason’s church, Hope Church was undamaged yet just blocks from the church the damage was severe.  Pray for Jason and his church as they provide much needed support, care and the hope of the Gospel to those impacted by this storm.

Here are some of the show highlights

Jason Rumbough is the Replant Pastor of Hope Church Nashville, a Replant from Eastland Baptist Church

Eastland Baptist Church was 106 years old, down to 40 people, average age of the congregation was 72 years.

As a Replant from within, this is the most difficult type of Replant.

One Sunday, the attendance was 13, six of which were Jason’s family. This was a low point and also a turning point.

Things began to turn around-God began brining people to the church, assembling a team of unlikely people who formed the Replanting core group.

Jason began doing the work of an Evangelist, people came to faith and the Church has grown.

In a Replant people may not know exactly what the Gospel means, how it informs us and how it leads us on mission. It’s important define the Gospel.

When you preach the Gospel, people may leave.

Replanting from within is difficult, it’s hard. One of the things that helps, is being honest about where you are with yourself and the church.

One of the long time members at Eastland said: “I knew we needed to change, I just didn’t know it would be this hard.”

Advice to Replanters: Love your people, preach the gospel, take care of your family.
