Decision Making, pt1

God has anointed all of us to lead in some respect, in some capacity, in some sphere. The most distinctive sign of a leader is decisiveness. Being a leader, however, does not mean that every decision made will be the right decision. To be effective at leading, we must be decisive and not fear the consequences of a bad decision. Don’t let the paralysis of analysis cause you to not move forward. Show notes (posted every Tuesday) can be found HERE.

Decision Making, pt2

God wants people with fruitful lives that know how to make decisions. When you make a decision, you are cutting off the escape hatches of the other places you could go. Our decisions won’t make or break us, but our decisions will mark us. Show notes (posted every Tuesday) can be found HERE.

Divine Healing

The single biggest deterrent to people getting healed is faith. Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.We need to be stirring faith up in believers. We need to set a new culture where we are preaching the Word, having people examine themselves in preparation to receive prayer, and then releasing faith and believing God for a supernatural outpouring.

Dignity

Dignity is not ours to give, to decide upon by a vote, to debate; but dignity, rather is to recognize, receive and, honor. Dignity, by its very nature, is not about performance or ability, production or contribution. It's not even about being wanted or needed, but dignity is about “being”—it’s about being a human being. That is the true qualification for dignity, and that is the story history will eventually tell. What side of history will we be on? The side that wrapped itself in silence while the slaughter continued, or will it be the side that intervened to stop the madness? Show notes (posted every Tuesday) can be found HERE.

Mistakes to Avoid in Building a Team, pt1

A common mistake that is made when building a team is putting it on hold and waiting for better people to come along. Start with what you have. Be methodical. Be intentional. Draw out a strategy. Begin to bring people together. Create a pot for that flower to bloom. It has to be organic, but even things that are organic have a biological structure to it—make sure you supply that.

Strong Personalities, part 2

It is easier to deal with wildfire than no fire. How a senior leader handles strong personalities is one of the defining marks of their success. When working with strong personalities, you have to focus on the idea (not the person), avoid suspicion, and not be fearful. The goal is to be a leader that strong personalities feel like they can vent to, talk to, and give opinions to without being shut down. When we lead from that position, we will find that we spend a lot less time trying to make a fire under people and more time enjoying the wildfires that God has placed in our midst.

Mistakes to Avoid in Building a Team, pt2

When we have promoted someone to a leadership position, we can think that we are all on the same page and we see that we have giftings that complement each other, but we often fail to talk about and define the values of the team. Identify those values, clearly define them, and communicate them to every member of the team. Show notes (posted every Tuesday) can be found HERE.

Giving pt6: Supply and Multiply

God looks at us as a sower. We may look at our needs and feel we don’t have an abundance related to certain things, but when it comes to giving, we always have an abundance because giving is seed. One little seed. We may discount that amount, but God never wants us to discount our obedience. God exalts those acts of obedience, even if they are seemingly small.

Giving pt5: Higher Standards for Leaders

If God has called you to leadership, He has called you to a higher standard. A critical standard of leadership is not just how someone handles responsibility, it’s how they handle privilege. James tells us that we should not want to be teachers (leaders), knowing that we will receive a greater condemnation, not a greater commendation.

Immediate and Specific Follow-up Plan

Join us as Keith has a conversation about having an immediate and specific follow-up plan for new converts. He has found that many leaders agree on the ingredients, but fail to make and implement a plan. It does not have to be complicated. Keith explains how all you need is a “fast ball straight down the lane.” You will find that having, and implementing, an immediate and specific new convert plan will change the dynamics and have exponential impact on everything you are doing in your local church setting.

What Does Healthy Look Like?

Often in leadership, we are depending on sheer force to get something done rather than the edge of the blade being sharp. I remember one time, watching someone cut down a tree. I joked that he was trying to burn the tree down. His saw blade was so dull that you could literally smell the little tree burning. He spent a lot of time trying to cut down a small tree with a dull blade. There is a life lesson there. Healthy is being sharp. Show notes (posted every Tuesday) can be found HERE.

Giving pt1: Giving is a Grace

Giving is a grace. We should be excited about it. If you are not excited about giving or talking about giving, it’s because you are lacking grace. The church should be an example to the world of God’s economy. Show notes (posted every Tuesday) can be found HERE.

The Art of the Meeting, part 3

Join us as we continue our conversation on the Art of Meetings. The Holy Spirit spoke to Keith one day after watching some guys drill a well, “If you stay in contact with all of the different soils in your church, you will hit water every time.” Many leaders make fail errors and do not act quickly because they are simply going on old information. Listen as Keith Tucci discusses how to drill down at every leadership level so that you will sustain the people who are serving and see the water level rising at your church.

False Presuppositions, pt3

29 times (8 of them in the Old Testament) the Bible tells us to love God and obey His commandments. In other words, we love God according to His commandments. Do you think God wanted to be loved differently in the Old Testament than He wants to be loved now? Of course not! God is the same. When we unhitch ourselves from the Old Testament, we begin to declare that God has changed. Once we believe that God has changed, everything is shifting sand.

Mistakes to Avoid in Building a Team, pt3

We should not have leadership teams whose only obligation is to give an opinion, but teams that understand that they are part of the DOING team. That when all hands are called on deck, that they are the first guys to show up. That they are leading not just by wisdom, which is obviously great, but leading by example.

To Obey or Not to Obey

There is a difference between Truth and fact. Facts are accurate, but subject to change. Truth is eternal. God invests in us and gives us the stewardship of preaching, teaching, and living that which is eternal. That is a very important understanding to have when discussing the issue of civil disobedience. If we are going to violate the standards of civil government by trying to remain true to God, the objective in our heart should not be defiance; it should be obedience. We should have a deep desire to obey God, be true to God, and stand against lies. Show notes (posted every Tuesday) can be found HERE.

Building the Church, pt1

Have you ever in your church life seen someone who was very faithful and grounded, and yet down the road somewhere they got into a tizzy or caused division because of having a strong opinion or idea about something? I’m not referring to a doctrinal issue, but about the way something should be done or the color of the paint—something along those lines. Have you ever wondered how that happened? Maybe we’ve contributed to that DNA. That there is something in the soil that is reproducing itself. Show notes (posted every Tuesday) can be found HERE.
