    This episode is a continuation of an interview Pastor Josh had with Gordon MacDonald. If you have not listened to part 1, please do so before continuing this episode!

    Here are some of highlights from this episode:

    Some of the disciplines Pastor Gordon has developed over the years that bring depth to his life both personally and as a Christian leader:

    Being a man of the Word. We must be committed to God’s Word by absorbing and memorizing it.

    Reading biographies of past Christian leaders


    Accountability to a mentor and close friends

    Asking questions. Few people know how to ask questions.

    As leaders, we must pry into people to help them grow spiritually.

    “Your peers help you to create, but your mentors help you to go deep.” – Gordon MacDonald

    “Asking questions is a powerful key to spiritual development and growth.” – Gordon MacDonald

    Every person has a story. Asking questions engages people to truly think about their honest answers. Hard questions force you to account for the depth of your life. Be the leader who doesn’t just ask surface level questions, but who reveals their motives by the first question they ask.

    “The questions you ask will reveal the motives of your heart.” – Josh Gagnon

    The best piece of advice Gordon ever received for his marriage was, “God means to say many things to you through [your wife]; listen to her.” For any men in ministry, it is important to remember that your wife will have many things to say to you that you need to hear. Treat your wife with dignity and respect and help her recognize her spiritual gifts, then draw upon them.

    “Your job is to help your wife to become everything God wan. Listen to over 40,000 radio shows, podcasts and live radio stations for free on your iPhone, iPad, Android and PC. Discover the best of news, entertainment, comedy, sports and talk radio on demand with Stitcher Radio.

  4. Congregationalism Part 3 - Leadership - Emmaus Bible Church

    We must give careful consideration to biblical leadership because God has structured His church in such a way that He receives the most glory, the gospel advances the most efficiently, and His people are the most well-cared for.

    1 Timothy 3:1-13, Titus 1:5-11, 1 Peter 5:1-4, Ephesians 4:11-16, Acts 6:1-7

    The Bible gives two offices of leadership in the church:

    1. Elders

    2. Deacons

  6. Unlocking the culture of your church

    It is now becoming a common axiom that culture trumps vision. It doesn’t matter how much we preach or how many mission statements we devise or how well we communicate our vision. To see results, strategic steps must be implemented that both identify and transform the spoken and unspoken attributes of a church’s culture. Only by changing your church’s culture can you align your church towards the trajectory of your vision.

    The presenter of this webinar, Dr. Samuel Chand, is widely recognized as one of the leading experts on leadership and church strategy. He is also the author of Cracking Your Church’s Culture Code: Seven Keys to Unleashing Vision and Inspiration.

    This webinar is a must if you don’t want to waste countless years of your time trying to execute church strategy and vision.

    This webinar, sponsored by Christ Covenant Coalition, will be presented by Dr. Samuel Chand. Dr. Chand serves pastors, ministries and businesses as a leadership architect and change strategist. He has served as senior pastor, college president, chancellor and president emeritus. He personally consults, mentors and coaches some of the country’s largest church pastors, speaks regularly at leadership conferences, churches, corporations, leadership roundtables, ministers’ conferences, seminars and other leadership development opportunities.
