Welcome to the Concepts In Ministry blog!
Starting in September of 2016, you will begin to find new content added to our website, this blog and a podcast that will be streaming on iTunes. Many people have asked me personally what we will offer when we officially “launch.”
Throughout our years of ministry, we have come across ministry leaders, both paid and volunteer, who want to do better. Who want to succeed. Who have extraordinary visions for their congregations and ministries. The question that they often ask themselves is: “How do I get there?”
Maybe that is the question you are asking yourself right now. “How do I get my ministry to where I want it to be?” Or maybe you’re just thinking: “Where do I start?”
Let me start by saying, we don’t have all the answers. But, we want to help. Chances are, we’ve seen it all when it comes to the “challenges” of being a ministry leader. There are times we are proud of. There are times when we’ve fallen flat on our face. We’ve hit the ministry mountaintops, as well as, the valleys.
Our hope is that through our website, blog and podcast, that you, as leaders, can find a place to learn, to grow, and to be encouraged. While at the Global Leadership Summit this past year, I heard one of the speakers say, “If you find that ‘it’s lonely at the top,’ you’re doing it wrong.” That struck me. How many times have I felt that way? Well, we don’t want you to do this alone.
We want you to know you’re not alone. We want you to know that, odds are, we’ve been there before. We want you to know that what we offer in our blogs and podcast are FREE. We want to offer our resources and experience to those who need it most. In the future, we may offer conferences or weekend retreats in your area, but the content on our blogs and podcast will always be at no cost to you.
Feel free to email us if there is a specific topic you would like us to cover. We’d love to hear from you. Otherwise, we’ll post what God has laid on our hearts.
