    Abortion, Racism, and the Love of the Local Church - Albert Tate - 11 FrontStage BackStage with Jason Daye

    Abortion, Racism, and the Love of the Local Church - Albert Tate - 11 FrontStage BackStage with Jason Daye

    How can the local church lead around challenging issues like abortion and racial reconciliation? In this week's conversation on FrontStage BackStage, host Jason Daye is joined by pastor and bestselling author Albert Tate as they look at what it's going to take for the church to live out Jesus' prayer for his followers.

    Some key takeaways from this conversation:
    Albert Tate on the biblical ethic and politics: "The problem is the Bible does not fit neatly nestled under the Republican platform. The Bible does not fit neatly nestled under the Democratic platform. So if the Bible doesn't fit neatly nestled under the Republican or Democratic platform, how is it possible that I can fit so neatly nestled under those platforms? At some point, I have to step outside of God's progressive agenda to sit under this conservative side or at some point, I will have to step outside of God's conservative agenda to sit on this progressive side."

    Albert Tate on loving well in relation to abortion: "Abortion, look at our visceral reaction.... if the stat is true, 1 in 4 women have not only wrestled with the decision, but made the decision to end their pregnancy. And as followers of Jesus Christ, we believe that that baby in the womb is an actual life, so to take the life of that child. That means every time we talk about it publicly, there are many, many women in the room that have experienced that. And I don't know about you, man, but I've had to pastor and sit and shepherd women and men who've made that decision. I haven't met one person that was exceptionally excited about the choice that they felt like they had to make, right. And I've seen Satan try to mark them with a guilt and a shame that allows them not even to live into the redemption and forgiveness of Jesus Christ."
    Albert Tate on eradicating racism: "So build relationships with people that are different, and practice living out a biblical love for those people. And as you lead organizations, and as you train volunteers, and as you preach God's word to people, teach that ethic, teach the vision of love, specifically, loving those that are hard to love. If we get that right, I think racism can dry up in the next generation."

    Our Spiritual Formation in the Digital Age - Jay Kim - 10 FrontStage BackStage with Jason Daye

    Our Spiritual Formation in the Digital Age - Jay Kim - 10 FrontStage BackStage with Jason Daye

    How do we approach spiritual formation in the digital age? In this week's conversation on FrontStage BackStage, host Jason Daye is joined by pastor and author Jay Kim, as they look at spiritual development for pastors themselves and for the people God has entrusted them to lead.

    Dig deeper into this conversation: Find the free Weekly Toolkit, including the Ministry Leaders Growth Guide, all resource links, and more at http://PastorServe.org/network

    Some key takeaways from this conversation:
    Jay Kim on technology and human connections: "While there is much to be grateful for when it comes to technology, it does fall short, in terms of the most human sorts of connections we can have"

    Jay Kim on pastoral calling: "Pastoral calling is, first and foremost, a calling to faithfulness: faithfulness to God and then faithfulness to the congregations and communities that we are called to"

    Jay Kim on being an effective pastor: "Every church leader, every pastor, needs to do the work. We need to put in the time and the energy and pray and fast and exegete not just the scriptures, but exegete our cities and our towns and our neighborhoods, and our people and their lives to, as faithfully as possible, serve them well, and hopefully guide them closer to Christ together.”

    Jay Kim on what we measure: "I think there's a healthy way to keep an eye on attendance and giving and all of those things are critically important, but I would suggest that they are critically important in so much as they reveal to you a glimpse of your effectiveness as a pastor and as a church... your effectiveness in actually forming and shaping, you know, disciples, followers of Jesus who are orbiting their lives around Christ"

    The Future of the Church: Addressing Issues & Embracing Hope - Nancy Beach & Samantha Beach Kiley - 09 FrontStage BackStage with Jason Daye

    The Future of the Church: Addressing Issues & Embracing Hope - Nancy Beach & Samantha Beach Kiley - 09 FrontStage BackStage with Jason Daye

    Why are so many of the changes that the Church is currently facing so dramatically different from many of the changes that we navigated over the past few decades? And, as we recognize these changes, why is it so important to address them honestly when it comes to the future of the Church? In this week's conversation on FrontStage BackStage, host Jason Daye is joined by Nancy Beach and Samantha Beach Kiley. Nancy helped found and served at Willow Creek Church for many years, and is now a teaching pastor at Soul City Church in Chicago. Samantha serves as a creative arts pastor, and together, they wrote a new book entitled, Next Sunday: an Honest Dialogue about the Future of the Church. This is a multi-generational conversation with two people who have a heart for Jesus and a heart for His Church.

    Dig deeper into this conversation: Find the free Weekly Toolkit, including the Ministry Leaders Growth Guide, all resource links, and more at http://PastorServe.org/network
    Some key takeaways from this conversation:
    Nancy Beach on leaders growing in self-awareness: "We are all capable of blind spots. We all have ways in which we don't really see, sometimes...our unhealthy self. And so I think it begins with leaders who are growing, always, in self-awareness, allowing some trusted people, whether that be a counselor or a good honest friend, to hold up a mirror to us to actually help us see what we can't seem to see ourselves.”

    Samantha Beach Kiley on being more effective by slowing down: “Sometimes we're quick to leap towards the next stage of repair without doing the due diligence of confession and lament”

    Nancy Beach on where every church should focus their energy: “You might not be so great at strategic planning, or at your vision, or fundraising, or have a magnificent building, or anything like that. But you can focus on being a more loving, welcoming, truly welcoming, church. And that is what Jesus said would most draw people to Himself anyway. So that's where I think our energy needs to go.”

    Samantha Beach Kiley on hope in the future Church: "I think the hope of the Church --that it could be a force of restoration in our local community, and, and in the world at large, and in our own hearts-- I just don't think there's anything like that, and people need and want that....it's unlike any other part of modern life."

    Compassion and Courage in Chaotic Times - Os Guinness - 08 FrontStage BackStage with Jason Daye

    Compassion and Courage in Chaotic Times - Os Guinness - 08 FrontStage BackStage with Jason Daye

    How can we best invite people to explore the deep questions of life, meaning, and faith? In this week's conversation on FrontStage BackStage, host Jason Daye is joined by scholar, author, and Christ-follower, Os Guinness, as they explore this question, and look at what it takes to share the love, the hope, and the truth of Jesus in today's ever-changing world.

    Dig deeper into this conversation: Find the free Weekly Toolkit, including the Ministry Leaders Growth Guide, all resource links, and more at http://PastorServe.org/network
    >> Complimentary 1-hour Coaching Session for Pastors http://PastorServe.org/freesession

    Some key takeaways from this conversation:
    Os Guinness on this crucial time in history:  “We're in a civilizational moment for the West, and for America, a transitional moment in the course of a civilization which could either lead to renewal or go on to decline, because both the West and America have rejected the faith that made them. And in America's case not only rejected the faith that made it, but rejected the revolution that made it, and turned to another revolution. So we're at an extraordinary time where as I said, faith and faithfulness is the issue.”

    Os Guinness on preaching toward tension: “...there should be a tension between the Word and the world. And when pastors preach wonderful biblical material, they should consciously put in some point, ‘now we're saying this, but the world will say that.’ In other words, create the tension. One of the root meanings of faith is the word tension. So we need to create that tension so that lay people take on the world, as our Lord says 'in it, but not of it.'”

    Os Guinness on pastors helping their people impact culture: “We've lost the wider consensus. Much of the culture now is --we're swimming upstream-- it's against us, but who cares about that? What matters is faithfulness. We're a countercultural creative minority. And pastors need to prepare their people not for a grand battle, so we hate those outside. No, we love our enemies. But we're a creative minority. And our faithfulness is key to the outcome of the struggle.”

    What My Mental Illness Taught Me as a Minister - Scott Box - 07 FrontStage BackStage with Jason Daye

    What My Mental Illness Taught Me as a Minister - Scott Box - 07 FrontStage BackStage with Jason Daye

    What does it look like to minister in the midst of mental illness? In this week's conversation on FrontStage BackStage, host Jason Daye is joined by Scott Box, founder of WorshipHero, as he shares his story of what it looks like when Jesus shows up in the midst of your brokenness.

    Dig deeper into this conversation: Find the free Weekly Toolkit, including the Ministry Leaders Growth Guide, all resource links, and more at http://PastorServe.org/network

    Some key takeaways from this conversation:
    Scott Box on being healthy vs complete healing: "Fight for health, because God will give you health. Even if healing doesn't come, even if healing is the most absurd impossibility, health, in some capacity, is always an option."

    Scot Box on mental illness and worshiping God: "What I've recognized is that my mental illness gave me a pathway to understanding worship earlier, or maybe better, than I would have had I...not struggled with mental disorder. It forced my lifestyle to get fixed. It forced a desperation upon Jesus that I never would have had."

    Scott Box on being a ministry leader with mental illness: "I used to think that I was too broken to be this type of leader. And then Jesus comes along, and in my pursuit and reflection of him. And he goes: 'Guess what, I got you. This is how you can lead worship, in a way that actually is more akin to the way that I lived my worship, Scott.' This is Jesus going 'I modeled worship by pursuing the Father,  by reflecting the Father, in everything."

    Resiliency in Ministry & the Gift of Benevolent Detachment - John Eldredge - 06 FrontStage BackStage

    Resiliency in Ministry & the Gift of Benevolent Detachment - John Eldredge - 06 FrontStage BackStage

    Resiliency in ministry is such an important topic and that's exactly what we get into on this episode of FrontStage BackStage with my guest, New York Times bestselling author John Eldredge. Be watching and listening specifically for what John has to say about benevolent detachment. So powerful for pastors, especially if you're wrestling with burning out, or perhaps even tapping out of ministry altogether.

    Dig deeper into this conversation: Find the free Weekly Toolkit, including the Ministry Leaders Growth Guide, all resource links, and more at http://PastorServe.org/network

    Some key takeaways from this conversation:
    John Eldredge on making space to enjoy God’s presence: “Most of my life is dominated by this world, this reality: technology and chaos and demands and meetings and emails. You know, all the crazy stuff. Where am I enjoying the rest of the kingdom of God? Where am I enjoying His presence enough that I am actually experiencing some of that water of life sort of saturating my inmost being so that I can thrive, so that I can live? Because everything is designed to strangle that out of you, right? The whole mess of this planet is designed to just strangle that and keep you in the chaos.”

    John Eldredge on sustainability of ministry: “It's fair to ask yourself, is this sustainable? And then to ask Jesus, is there another way? Are there some things that I actually can offload that would make this more sustainable?”

    John Eldredge on the true role of a pastor: “Let me relieve you of a burden that the pressure on the modern pastor is to be a global pundit, that you are an expert commentator on all global affairs. That is not your job. I want to relieve you of that.... it's not your job. Your job is to know God and to help your people into, you know, his transforming life, to disciple your people into His presence. You are meant to know God, and the expertise of the world thing has just been saddled on you, and it's crushing, and it will exhaust you.”
