    Annual Planning, Productivity, and Calendaring

    Annual Planning, Productivity, and Calendaring

    Around the new year we always start thinking about new plans and new goals we want to implement in the new year. Church planters in particular are notorious for having busy schedules, setting big goals, and doing a poor job of creating healthy margin in our lives. So how can we do better? 

    In this episode, Jared and Logan talk about annual planning, calendaring, and productivity for pastors and church planters. They cover everything from setting annual goals to building out calendar templates. We pray that this episode will help you plan well as you head into 2021!

    Beware Of Idols In Church Planting

    Beware Of Idols In Church Planting

    Church planters aren’t immune to idolatry. In fact, there are unique temptations and idols that can become a snare to church planters that we must be wary of. Some of those idols are good things that we turn into ultimate things.

    In this episode, Jared and Logan talk about some of the common idols that church planters turn toward and how we can guard ourselves from serving those idols.

    Sexual Sin And The Pastor

    Sexual Sin And The Pastor

    It seems like we hear another story about a pastor having a moral failure on a monthly basis. Unfortunately, sexual sin is not just rampant in our culture. It is all too prevalent in our churches. And church planters and pastors need to be on guard.

    Paul says in 1 Corinthians 10:12, “Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall.”

    In this week’s episode, Jared and Logan talk about the dangers of sexual sin, why pastors fall into it, how to flee from it, and what to do if you are caught up in it right now.

    If you are currently struggling to overcome sexual sin and do not know who to talk to, please reach out to one of us - we would love to pray with you!

    Equipping Women For Ministry In A Complementarian Church

    Equipping Women For Ministry In A Complementarian Church

    While Scripture teaches that the role of pastor is reserved for men, it’s also clear in Scripture that women play significant roles within the Body of Christ.

    Unfortunately, many complementarian churches do not have clear pathways for women to be trained and equipped for ministry. As a result, half of the missions force of the church is not equipped and many gifted women aren’t invested into as they should be.

    Other churches swing the pendulum in the opposite direction and blur the lines of gender roles, which is just as unhelpful.

    In this episode, Jared and Logan talk about the reasons complementarian churches drop the ball on equipping women for ministry and how we can do better.

    Dealing With Divisive People & False Teachers

    Dealing With Divisive People & False Teachers

    Scripture tells us that false teachers and divisive people will arise from time to time even from within our churches (Acts 20:29-31, 2 Pet. 2:1-2). But dealing with these situations is easier said than done. How do you handle these situations when they arise and how can you be prepared for them when they inevitably come? 

    That's what Jared and Logan talk about in this week's episode. They share from their own experience, talk about "Do's and don'ts" when it comes to dealing with divisive people, and discuss how Scripture counsels us to approach challenges like this.

Not just for planting

I’m working with a church revitalization and have found so many helpful and encouraging ideas here! Thank you! Thank you!

Check it out

Enjoyed hearing the stories and real experience of the church planters. Super helpful.

Solid Material

Jared and Matt are as the title suggests in the everyday work of Church Planting in very hard to reach places. If you are a church planter every episode will be relevant to you. These guys take Jesus very seriously but themselves not so seriously, exactly my style!
