    The first and foremost responsibility of any pastor is to be a witness.

    Paul’s example of being a witness is using his story to make the story of Christ, the gospel, important. When churches foster a community of witnessing they become living libraries of God’s Word. The world is in desperate need to hear and see the witness of transformation that Jesus does in the church.

    Fill out the Kingdom Roots survey here >> http://bit.ly/krsurvey

    Telling stories is fundamental to being human.

    Join Scot and Chaz as they explore what it looks likes to have a culture telling the most important story in history. If a church doesn’t nurture a culture where the gospel story is allowed to form the community, then living out God’s will is near impossible. Key to the kingdom taking root now is telling the story of how the Kingdom took root then.

    Culture of Generosity (Pastor Paul Series) - KR 144

    Culture of Generosity (Pastor Paul Series) - KR 144

    What a community does with its financial resources reveals what they value.

    Scot unpacks the Apostle Paul's vision for generosity and caring for the poor. Generosity was a staple in the early church and is still essential for God's Kingdom to continue to take root today. There is no telling the impact the church can make on the world with a culture of generosity driving toward equality of all.

    Why is the idea of friendships incomplete to describe the nature and quality of relationships in a church? What does it look like to live together in the family of God? How can a view of being siblings guide the church to be the community God desires it to be? Scot address all these questions and more in this episode.

    Culture of Friendship (Pastor Paul Series) - KR 142

    What would it have been like to be friends with the Apostle Paul?

    Scot takes a look at what friendship looked like in the ancient world through figures like Aristotle. Friendship was seen as a powerful force that shaped the trajectory of a life. If the Apostle Paul’s relationships teach us anything it is that Friends are essential to having a thriving ministry.
