- Episode Notes
- Moving from Planting (Metro Church) to an already established church (The Mount).
- Creating an environment that allows people to struggle, starting from the platform.
- Truth Renewed isn’t a replacement for the church regarding counseling, but an overflow of care.
- Truth Renewed is a training center to help equip church leaders to become biblical counselors and launch biblical counseling in the local church.
- Trident of ministry; robust theology, organization strategy, counsel and care.
- In the same way, we raise up leaders to make Sunday happen, we need to raise up care leaders for the rest of the week - where ministry lives.
- Don’t stop plowing, it takes time to bring life change and equipping the saints.
- Trust the process of sanctification.
- Find those in your congregation who are gifted in caring for others, they’re serious about God’s Word and the process of transformation, and scholarship them.
- Find a line item in your budget to cultivate the saints in soul care.
- The posture of a pastor should be a leader of learning.
- Sunday morning is to edify the saints.
