Following Easter we returned to an earlier rhythm of spending 30 minutes +/- in staff meeting on leadership equipping - addressing the vision and mission of Central and sharpening the skills that will help us pursue God's call with excellence.
At staff meeting yesterday we shared a conversation after watching this brief interview (https://youtu.be/nxqEye8ma5o) with Warren Bird of Leadership Network and Reggie McNeal author of Kingdom Come: Why We Must Give Up Our Obsession with Fixing the Church and What We Should Do Instead
Reggie has been a leader for over 20 years in helping congregations reach their communities, shifting from maintenance to mission. Though he does not use the same language, this is consistent with Eddie Hammett's The Gathered and Scattered Church vision. And though he doesn't address it in this video, a vibrant faith commitment to Jesus is presumed in everything he says here. He starts with that as a given, and then goes forward from there.
