    Why the Power of God Gives You Power to Die

    Disrupting False Peace as God's Path to True Peacemaking Pt. 2

    Disrupting False Peace as God's Path to True Peacemaking Pt. 2

    For too many years, I thought being a peacemaker was simply being a nice person.

    Because of this illusion, I spiritualized my conflict avoidance and created a culture in my church where everyone pretended things were ok. This is the definition of false peace.
    In the second part of this series, we explore how Jesus disrupted false peace by cleansing the temple. If you're a people-pleaser, this is a critical message for our day!

    Disrupting False Peace as God's Path to True Peacemaking Pt. 1

    Disrupting False Peace as God's Path to True Peacemaking Pt. 1

    I spent my early years avoiding conflict. True peacemaking, when understood correctly, actually comes through disrupting false peace.
    In today's podcast, I share a sermon that goes deeper into this new understanding. I assure you...it changes everything.

    Why Our Church Crisis Demands a New Kind of Training

    Why Our Church Crisis Demands a New Kind of Training

    Many pastors have been professionally educated and extensively trained.
    The problem is – we are facing a massive discipleship crisis. I've found that much of our training doesn't help get at the root of this problem.

    Deep change requires a new kind of training.
    In today's episode, I cast a biblical vision for why training is not a "once and done" experience but a lifestyle we are called to.

    Why Pain and Failure are God’s Great Gifts to You

    Why Pain and Failure are God’s Great Gifts to You

    For many leaders, the pain and failure that come with leadership are often too much to bear. 

    But the truth is – pain and failure are some of God's greatest gifts to us.

    Why? Because it is the only way we will mature into the unique leaders He has destined us to become. In today's podcast episode, I'll show you how to perceive the challenges of leadership as gifts from the Father.

Inspiring words

While I’m not a church leader, I’m consistently inspired by Pete’s pearls of wisdom. The invitation and permission (from God) to slow down and take inventory of one’s life is the kind of Good News we all need today. Thank you Pastor Pete🙏🏽

The Church needs to change

After being in the church for over 50+ years, I believe the church needs a radical change. Sex addiction, conflict, shallow discipleship, and lack of biblical principles creates a meaningless religion.

Pete, I praise God for your dark night of the soul. Your dark season has given us so much hope. True peacemaking is so lost. We reached out to a pastor to help us bring peace to our family. He shirked his duty because, “we weren’t apart of his church.” So many believers are spiritualizing their pain away. Pastors are I’ll equipped and sometimes refuse to learn.
Thanks my friend
