Church Planting Boot Camp – Day 1

I had a great first day at the church planting boot camp up in Michigan.  We had a lot of good teaching today on being a successful church planting coach.  Here’s a few takeaways:

  • “A coach helps you think through the options before making those big decisions.”
  • “He who talks most listens least.”  –Steve Ogne
  • “Don’t be afraid of silence.  A ‘pregnant pause’ can give birth to new insights.”
  • “The most effective way to influence both individual and institutional behavior is to ask questions.” -Lyle Schaller
  • “I just keep asking questions until God shows up.” -Dianne Gonzales

In addition to some great teaching, I also had a chance to meet-up with some good friends in the church planting world (Trinity Jordan, Steve & Mary Beth Bradshaw and Tim Satryan)!
