Pastors Ken and Kris Dillingham tackle the topics and discuss the strategies of getting the church "out of the box."
Behind the Curtain: Insights On Our Journey to Multiplication
A lot of our discussions have been philosophical in nature and discussing concepts and principles for being a multiplying disciple-maker or leading a multiplication movement. In today’s episode, we invite you to join us as we discuss the ups and downs of our personal journey and how that has shaped us and led us to develop the Map to Multiplication.
The Value of Tension
Most of us will go to great lengths to avoid tension in our lives. But is it possible that God is using tension to help us to be conformed into the image of Jesus? In this episode we discuss what spiritual/discipleship tension is and how it can be one of the best gifts God gives to us.
Stories Tell the Story
There is nothing on the planet more transformational than the gospel of the kingdom of Jesus. Through the working of His Spirit, we are changed, healed, delivered, experience the miraculous, and so much more. And it is through our stories of personal transformation that we have an opportunity to share with others what God can and wants to do for them. How much more effective would we be if we shared the doctrinal truths of the kingdom through the lens of our personal transformation? Your stories are what truly tell the story!
The Problem With Assumptions
Our job as multiplying disciple-makers is to build relationships and to identify discipleable people through spiritual conversations. In any situation, but particularly disciple-making, one of the biggest challenges we face is that we often go into a conversation with preconceived ideas. In today’s episode we talk about why assumptions are an issue and how everyone desiring to be an effective disciple-maker can avoid the assumption-trap.
Pirates, Passengers, and Plate-Spinning Pastors
One of the biggest mistakes we make is that we often confuse activity with progress. This is nothing new in scripture because we see the children of Israel wandering in the wilderness for 40 years but not really going anywhere. Unfortunately, there are many who feel like their world is full of busyness but are not seeing the missional success they would know God wants to give them. In this episode we discuss how to get off the merry-go-round and live with intentionality.
The Complexity of Modern Church Systems vs The Simplicity and Flexibility of the Book of Acts Model
In a chaotic world like we are living in with an unprecedented pandemic and global socio-political upheaval, it is becoming increasingly apparent that the complexity of the institutional systems is incapable of fulfilling the missional mandate. The only thing that has the flexibility and the ability for multiplication in the hour in which we are living is the plan Jesus put in place and the apostolic principles of discipleship. Today we break down why it is absolutely critical that we apply the simple, apostolic principles of Jesus.
Kris and Ken Dillingham are always ready to tackle, dissect, discuss and listen to input on the sensitive issues of discipleship - and any other church “growth” topic that comes their way.
Incredible, dynamic, and thought provoking content!!
Every time I tune in, my faith swells. God is doing mighty things and this podcast consistently exhorts and edifies believers. I’m grateful for every word!
I’ve been listening to your podcasts and they are simply incredible! “The Transformational Power of The Holy Ghost” Episode had me weeping as I drove down the highway. I’ve been praying for the Lord to teach and direct me as I lead our church and I was immediately directed to your podcasts. They have been so refreshing! Thank you so much for your practical and transparent teaching. Lord bless you both!
