186: Why Our Leaders Need to Reimagine the Church

The Church has been run in much the same way for decades; we’ve run programs, services, built buildings, and held conferences. I wonder if we’ve really achieved the thing that is most on the heart of God?

This week on the Lifeschool Podcast, we talk with author and movement leader, Nic Harding, and try and explain why our leaders need to reimagine the church as it functions today.

For many of us caught up in the treadmill of Church activity, we’ve lost sight of the abundant life Jesus offers us. Needless, stress-inducing busyness is a sure sign that we have got something badly wrong. But joy and a truly abundant life is the hallmark of getting this right. You in?

In This Episode You’ll Learn:

  • How to clarify the “win” that Jesus gave us for the Church.
  • What to do when you find yourself WAY TOO busy (and stressed) leading in the Church.
  • How discovering your true purpose will set you free from crazy, religious busyness,
  • Great resources for walking step-by-step in making disciples and developing leaders.

reimagine the church

From this episode:

“If you’re a leader in the Church today, are you focusing your energies and living your life for the approval of others… the board, the elders, the congregation… or living in the truth that you are a child of the King, who is your loving Father?”
