Your Best Life In Jesus’ Easy Yoke
Bill Gaultiere
Tuesday, March 15, 2016

The dirty little secret is that leaders are people too. If they’re honest, most leaders will say that they all too often battle hurry sickness, fatigue, anxiety, self-doubt, a craving for approval and unhealthy levels of competitiveness. Today’s guest has made a career of walking alongside high-octane leaders with the only perfect antidote to their dis-ease.

Episode Highlights:

  • A personal look at Soul Shepherding’s motto “Love your Neighbor Pastor” and the model for caring for local churches and pastors.
  • Staggering statistics on pastor health – and why our culture is in critical need of pastors for pastors.
  • What is meant by “spiritual direction” and how is it practiced today?
  • Tips to integrating spiritual life with daily life.
  • A deeper understanding of Apprenticeship vs. Discipleship.
  • Unpacking the phrase “easy yoke” – in scripture and in application.

    Partnering With Your Community for Sustainable Impact
    John Cissel
    Tuesday, March 01, 2016

    Before there’s a church building, there needs to be a sound strategy on what we build, where we build, and ultimately why we’re building in the first place. As a passionate advocate for sustainable impact, John Cissel has walked hundreds of business and ministry leaders through that exact conversation.

    Episode Highlights:

  • Hear how technology, culture and increased regulations have changed the world of real estate.
  • The new paradigm of church facilities, the three realities of change and why churches often flee from complexity.
  • Real world examples of creating a sustainable model by utilizing your real estate to create alternative revenues within an urban environment.
  • Discover the new model of church facilities as millennials have been handed the reign of leadership for the spaces that they will utilize and design and what it means to be a “well digger” vs. a “temple builder.”

    How Generational IQ Can Make or Break Your Church
    Haydn Shaw
    Tuesday, February 23, 2016

    Can five generations really work and worship side-by-side? For the answer to that and other questions we turned to Haydn Shaw, sought-after FranklinCovey speaker, author and expert in how multiple generations think and interact. His first book, “Sticking Points” was aimed at the marketplace. His latest book, “Generational IQ” is focused on the Church and is often surprisingly counter-intuitive, as the subtitle would suggest: “Christianity Isn’t Dying, Millennials Aren’t the Problem, and the Future is Bright.”

    Episode Highlights:

  • Learn why generational intelligence is more important today than ever before.
  • There’s no denying that social factors are changing. Generational shifts are here. So, what does that mean for us as a church and as a society?
  • Staggering statistics on baby boomers and what your church can do to reach millennials.
  • 5 things the church can do about generational shifts.
