Eastbrook Leadership Forum – May 5, 2014

Last night we gathered for our quarterly Leadership Forum at Eastbrook Church. The Leadership Forum gives us the chance to share new ideas, learn together, and pray for the ministry of our church.

We talked through ministry wins around our vision and six priorities, then offered updates on our generosity survey and upcoming church plant. Finally, I shared a teaching on leadership development. I’ve included the brief presentation that we utilized last night for those who were not able to join us. It will at least give you some idea of what we discussed.

I would love to interact further with the thoughts contained here.

Last night at Eastbrook Church, we gathered for our quarterly Leadership Forum. The Leadership Forum gives us the chance to share new ideas, learn together, and pray for the ministry of our church.

We looked at one of our six priorities last night that focuses on multiplying at every level: disciples, ministry leaders, and churches. I’m including the brief slide presentation that we utilized last night for those who were not able to join us. It will at least give you some idea of what we discussed.

I would love to interact further with the thoughts contained here.

Leadership Forum – April 30, 2012

This past Monday night at Eastbrook Church, we gathered together for our quarterly Leadership Forum. I am so thankful for all those who came together for this important time to look at vision and direction.

Our focus for this gathering was on multiplying at every level, in particular developing ministry leaders at the church. We talked about the need to multiply disciples and ministry leaders if we are ever to be a part of God’s work in reaching more people through multiplying churches or sites. I utilized 2 Timothy 2:2 as a basis for our discussion of the reproductive principle we see in nature (e.g., seeds to plants to scattering seeds) and in the ministry of Jesus Christ (e.g., selecting twelve, sending twelve, sending the seventy).

We discussed the challenge of taking action versus waiting on God in prayer. We discussed the variety of ways that we can reach out to develop others.

My challenge to everyone present was that each of us pray that God would lead us to at least one other person whom we could pour ourselves into so that they might be able to do what we do in ministry.

You can view the slide presentation that accompanied our discussion below.
