    Three Ways Spiritual Leaders Must Respond in Perilous Times

    Three Ways Spiritual Leaders Must Respond in Perilous Times

    That word perilous in 2 Timothy 3:1 speaks of an unraveling. It’s not hard to see the application of this verse to the world we live in today. It seems that culture from top to bottom is unraveling around us. The question is, how should we as spiritual leaders respond in this perilous time?


    In this newest episode of the Spiritual Leadership Podcast, my son Larry and I discuss three vital responses:


    We need to settle our convictions. We need to know what we believe from Scripture and be unwaveringly faithful to biblical truth. As culture moves further and further from the truth there is a stronger and stronger pull on Christian leaders to accommodate their beliefs to the whims of culture. We must resist this trend.


    We need to study our culture. We need to be discerning of current trends. While we must never bend our convictions to culture, we do need to understand the world in which we live in order to reach people for Christ. We need to understand how to teach and apply biblical truth to the people which we are ministering.


    We need to seize our calling. We need a renewed commitment to proclaiming the gospel and to serving the local church. We need to lead like Jesus, walking in the Spirit even as we face opposition.

    What Now?

    What Now?

    Prayerfully, and with God’s help, as vaccines get distributed, it looks like we could soon be closing the chapter on COVID-19. I think most of us are looking forward to breathing a collective sigh of relief. This season of ministry has brought numerous challenges, and most church ministry today does not look like it did just 12 months ago.


    Most of our churches have seen some combination of spiritual, physical and financial challenges over the past year. So what do we do now? How do we restart with fresh passion and vision? In today’s episode of Spiritual Leadership Conference, my son, Larry and I discuss moving ministry forward. We talk about learning from the challenges and reengaging our staff and our church family in our cause of declaring the gospel to our lost world.

    Developing an Effective Weekly Schedule

    Developing an Effective Weekly Schedule

    Time is one of God’s greatest gifts. He gives it to all of us equally, and how we use it is our gift back to Him. We often speak of managing our time, but I have learned you really can’t manage time—you can only manage yourself.


    In this episode of the Spiritual Leadership Podcast, we discuss how to develop and remain accountable to a weekly schedule that holds all of the core responsibilities which God has given to us.


    My son, Larry, joined me for this discussion and posed helpful questions throughout, including these:


    What is a good starting point for developing a weekly schedule?

    How often do you step back and re-evaluate your priorities?

    What are the differences in your purposes for a weekly, monthly, and annual view?

    How often does your week go as it was planned?

    What are some of the ways you replenish and restore after expending energy?

    How do you deal with interruptions?

    What would your advice be to ministry leaders who want to implement this for themselves as well as for their team?


    I enjoyed this discussion with Larry. We have different temperaments but share the same desire to steward our lives fully for Christ. I believe what we covered in this conversation is helpful for every leader regardless of their temperament, responsibilities, or specifics of their weekly schedule.


    Near the end of our conversation, we talked about a new resource that is a tool for your weekly schedule—the revised edition of the Stewarding Life Planner. The changes in this edition are substantive and useful. They include a new weekly review process as you go through your roles as well as a daily page spread with room to include devotional thoughts, identify the big priorities for the day, and map out the day’s appointments and tasks.


    The planner is available for pre-order now and will be in before Christmas. For listeners of this podcast, we are offering a special 20% discount if you order by December 18. Simply use the coupon code PODCAST20.

A Guide for Christian Leaders

Thankful for the insight and guidance that Pastor Chappell gives to help Christian leaders! I really appreciate how everything is rooted to the Scriptures and not just opinions. The historical background that is shared is so insightful. I love the addition of Larry Chappell too, he really helps with the conversation flow!
