Last week, 75 international leaders were at Willow Creek Community Church for Partnering to Prevail (PTP), a gathering specifically for equipping and training international church leaders.
“We know for a fact that the first 10 leaders from South Africa who attended the first PTP in 2000 are leading the most pioneering, progressive, relevant churches in our country today. The impact of the PTP is profound and has resulted in church growth, personal soul care, community upliftment, more conversions, more baptisms and an increased willingness to change and be relevant and make a difference in the world.” - Janine Couchman, WCA affiliate leader in South Africa
Ministry leaders representing just about every area of the Church shared their experience on some hot topics.
One of the speakers, Gordon MacDonald, told pastors: if you want to have longevity in ministry, you have to build in disciplines in all areas of your life. Discipline is a powerful form of preserving your life for the work that God has called you to. Gordon asked pastors, “How well are you disciplining your life in these areas?”
Gordon’s question made us think, how well do we as church leaders discipline all areas of our world today- including our private life? What are your challenges for disciplining your life?
Tell us in the comments. Lets get a conversation started with other leaders on this important topic.
