    (Re)Centring the Gospel on Jesus with Colin McCartney | UNITE '22

    (Re)Centring the Gospel on Jesus with Colin McCartney | UNITE '22

    Colin McCartney is a pastor at Connect City Church and a seasoned leader who has spent years working for shalom in the urban heart of Toronto, Canada. In this talk from our UNITE ‘22 conference, Colin defines what a gospel centred on Jesus means and looks like in a distracted, violent, and politicized world.
    This talk will inspire you to make everything about Jesus. Colin challenges us to ensure that the living and knowable Jesus isn’t being displaced by a politically co-opted or religiously codified Jesus at the centre of the Gospel.

    Jesus Centred Leadership

    Jesus Centred Leadership

    Why are so many church leaders falling into sin around money, sex, and power? Why isn’t it enough to learn about Jesus in order to know him? Why is an existential encounter with Jesus necessary in order to become like him? Author Michael Frost joins us to talk about the latest edition of his book ReJesus: Remaking The Church In Our Founder's Image, all about what happens when we pattern ourselves and our churches around Jesus.
    Together we explore the aspects of Jesus' missional life, death, and resurrection that get lost in the business of church, why the church in the west has become so domesticated by secular culture, new models and changes that are necessary for the church to engage secular people over the next 10 years, plus models and examples of Jesus-centred churches that are living out the radical mission of Jesus in their contexts today.
    Michael Frost is a veteran missional practitioner, theologian, author, and equipper. He’s the founding Director of the Tinsley Institute, a mission study centre located at Morling College in Sydney, Australia.

    Postures and Practices of a Jesus-Centred Church in Post-Christian Canada

    Postures and Practices of a Jesus-Centred Church in Post-Christian Canada

    Join us for another episode of our Practitioners Series where we learn how Jesus-centred churches are seeking to be on mission with Jesus.
    More and more in North America and Europe, the Church and Christianity are seen as irrelevant, insular, and offering little to make life better for secular communities. The message of Jesus is always good news, but churches can struggle making that good news relevant in their communities. The Tabernacle Christian Church (The Tab) in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada is quietly being good news to their city.
    We chat with Lead Pastor Frank Allen and Community Life Pastor Heidi Schaaf from the Tab about how the postures and practices they embody help them be good news for their secular community. We explore how they’re giving their building to their community, how they’re supporting drug-afflicted communities, at-risk youth, and Indigenous communities, stories of people becoming new Christians or rediscovering Jesus during COVID, and lots more.

    Bonus Episode: How Does Jesus-Centricity Change How We Lead - Part 2

    Bonus Episode: How Does Jesus-Centricity Change How We Lead - Part 2

    We met with Heather Thomas and Jonny Morrison for part two of a conversation about co- leadership. Inspired to apply a more Jesus-centred approach, Missio Dei Church in Salt Lake City, UT is innovating new forms of mutuality and shared organizational leadership. This bonus episode explores more of the reasons why co-leadership was important for the health and vitality of their church and the practical implications of this leadership model. Other themes include the power of mutuality, the inadequacy of the leader, and the resistance that comes with change. The podcast ends with a powerful conversation about what must die and what must be born in the hearts, minds, and egos of leaders who are committed to leading like Jesus.

    How Does Jesus-centricity Change How We Lead - Part 1

    How Does Jesus-centricity Change How We Lead - Part 1

    How does the way of Jesus challenge secular assumptions about power distribution and organizational leadership? Is there a way to lead a church or organization that's more aligned with a Jesus-centred approach?
    We're launching a new Practitioners series on the podcast that features Jesus Collective churches and how they're seeking to make Jesus even more central to their mission and practice.
    Missio Dei Church has been on a two-year journey of transitioning their leadership structure to a shared power, co-led model. Here are some questions we'll be exploring together:
    How has Jesus-centricity inspired an in-depth evaluation of leadership practices?
    How did co-leadership emerge from experiencing, diagnosing, and pressing back on coercive power structures in Missio’s recent transformations?
    How has a centred-set paradigm been a tool for navigating difficult changes?
    Join us as we learn from Co-Lead Pastors Heather Thomas and Jonny Morrison of Missio Dei Church, located in Salt Lake City, UT.
