Spirit-Filled Leadership

Mark Driscoll interviews Terry Virgo on what spirit filled leadership is. I love Terry’s emphasis on prayer, and how prayer is simply enjoying God and therefore spending time with Him!

Driscoll & Chester on Missional Church

I have just come across some fantastic material from the Redeem Cities Conference a couple of months ago, thanks to my brother Rich, and I thought I would share it on the blog. It is worth keeping in mind that the talks were spoken to a crowd of majority pastors and church planters but I think there are many lessons in there for Christian men and women in any role within a local church. I was particularly struck by Mark Driscoll’s first session on the four vital components of church – Reformed Theology, Complementarian Relationships, Spirit Filled Lives and Missional. He unpacks it very well indeed.

Then Tim Chester speaks about the way mission should happen in churches from 1 Peter 2. Evangelism is not first and foremost an exercise that brings non-Christians back to church, but rather Christians living holy lives to the glory God outside of the church meeting.

Anyway, they are brilliant lectures. Watch them if you can.

How to fight well for Doctrine

This is a helpful post from Pastor Mark Driscoll on the Resurgence website about how we can and should discuss doctrinal disagreements with other Christians but ensure that we do not fall into sins of pride, anger and self-righteousness.

A really good read here.

Church is NOT a Restaurant. It’s Family.

Mark Driscoll on Church, this is absolutely fantastic!
