    #15 RE:PLANT Conversation - Part 2 - Keri Ladouceur on Polarisation, Working Together and Supporting Women in Leadership

    This is Part 2 of a conversation with Keri Ladouceur, a pastor in Naperville, Illinois and founder and lead coach at New Ground Network. The conversation Anthony had with Keri touched on so many important points and is therefore split into two episodes. Following Part 1 this conversation continues to go into great resources for culture formation, things people misunderstand about Keri and what working together and supporting women in leadership looks like. 

    These two conversations go into great detail on points that we're hoping to cover at LAUNCH RE:PLANTthis October 3rd and 4th - register to join today and use the Promo Code 'FUTURECHURCH' for an extra 10% discount - https://launchcatalyst.org/

     

    More About Keri - 

    Keri Ladouceur serves a pastor in Naperville, Illinois and is founder and lead coach at New Ground Network. As a coach, Keri partners with pastors and denominational leaders, co-conspiring with them to seize their unique vision, develop their team's capacity, and mobilize people for mission.

    Her coaching was shaped as a former marketplace executive and senior leader at Willow Creek. She has more than sixteen years experience coaching pastors, non-profit, and marketplace leaders.

    The thrill of launching more than 90 missional communities and having a front row seat to the missional engagement of 100s of churches is exhilarating to her.

    She is an associate with the exponential team- teaching at conferences and creating leadership resources- most recently her book "Together as a Team". Her newest project is a podcast called A Third Way exploring the tension of following Jesus and the church's invitation to pace culture.

    She recently served as chair of the board for a global peace-making organization, and is wrapping up thesis writing for a Master of Arts in New Testament from Northern Seminary.

    #14 RE:PLANT Conversation - Part 1 - Keri Ladouceur on Goodness Cultures, Abuses of Power and How Transformation Happens

    This is Part 1 of a conversation with Keri Ladouceur, a pastor in Naperville, Illinois and founder and lead coach at New Ground Network. The conversation Anthony had with Keri touched on so many important points and is therefore split into two episodes. In this first episode they speak about what it means to establish goodness cultures that truly mean that what we are multiplying is the the culture of the Kingdom. 

    In this first part of the conversation, Anthony and Keri also speak about abuses of power, the need for persuasive arguments for people but equally the need to create safe spaces for people to wrestle with their faith and contend with their own questions and meet with the Holy Spirit as they enter and grow in their relationship with Jesus.

    Be sure to subscribe to the podcast for Part 2 of this conversation also coming next week where they dig deeper into these points and much more.

    Keri will be speaking at LAUNCH RE:PLANT in Wigan on October 3rd and 4th this year. Don't miss out on this event it will be BRILLIANT! Book in for you and your team today at discounted rates at launchcatalyst.org

    #13 RE:PLANT Conversation - James Ray on Embracing Discomfort, Finding Community & Seeking Adventure

    #13 RE:PLANT Conversation - James Ray on Embracing Discomfort, Finding Community & Seeking Adventure

    James Ray is the UK leader of XCC, the 'Xtreme Character Challenge' which takes men on mind, body, soul adventures. Anthony and around 30 men from Ivy Church went to Scotland on one of these 72 hour events in Scotland. Anthony says in this episode that the XCC was the most significant spiritual experience he has had personally in the last 20 years of ministry, a sentiment echoed by all of the Ivy men that went and thousands of others that have taken part over the years. 

    Listen to this conversation to hear about an event that has been radically significant for Anthony and for incredible stories and lessons about what it means to be a man, new ways to think about mens ministry and the benefit of embracing discomfort and finding radical community with others. XCC was one way that some guys at Ivy Church in Manchester helped go deeper in community, as James says - its an option! Why not check it out!

    There is also an event for women, Arise, that follows a similar outline (though I - Joel - have only been on an XCC so don't know details!) which you can check out here.

    #12 RE:PLANT Conversation - Steve Uppal on Spiritually Reforming Church rather than Changing Models of Church

    This conversation touches on much of what we'll be diving into at LAUNCH RE:PLANT in October. Steve Uppal (All Nations Movement) will be one of the speakers joining us there and we're excited to be able to share this conversation with Anthony with you today. 

    This episode dives into the struggles leaders face when they're truly pioneering new things, the importance and opportunities present when we do so and ways of coping with those struggles in the right ways, devoting more time to prayer and friendships and relationships. 

    There is a lot in this conversation and we're excited to hear more from him at LAUNCH later this year. You can get an extra 10% discount for that event when you use the code 'FUTURECHURCH' at checkout. Head to launchcatalyst.org to secure tickets for you and your team.

    #10 RE:PLANT Conversation - Professor Andrew Sherry on What People Want from Work, Purpose, Nuclear Reactors and Cigar-Box Guitars

    Professor Andrew Sherry is Chair of Materials and Structures at the Henry Royce Institute for Advanced Materials at the University of Manchester and was formerly the Chief Scientist at the National Nuclear Laboratory. He has also launched the 'Becoming Me' programme and runs the 'Are We Nearly There Yet' podcast (see @awnty), both of which aim to help people embrace who they are, flourish at what they do and thrive in making a difference. Andrew was also the Head Elder at Ivy Church when Anthony Delaney started at the Church and has been a good friend for many years. 

    This conversation covers many topics and centres around Andrew's work helping people through the new Becoming Me programme, what he's learnt from the process and how those lessons can be applied to the church. Andrew has had much success in academia and has significant influence but has always remained committed to the church and seeing it flourish and we're glad to share this conversation with you.

    This conversation also touches on nuclear reactors and cigar-box guitars.

Wisdom in what next

This is a great podcast, I've loved listening to the wisdom from others around the globe who are thinking, learning, talking and sharing what they see God doing in and through his church and kingdom. I'm learning from this podcast not just what is being talked about but how it is being talked about. Add it to your playlist!

“You have to listen to this!” was the txt I received recommending I listen to these podcasts. The interviews here are insightful, inspiring - and challenging! I am glad I did, as a Church Leader, not only is it good learning it helps you DO something! I am excited for more from Future Church..
