Come and See (video)

By Church
How did Jesus recruit followers? How does his method influence our approach today? Rather than try to convince people to follow him by winning arguments, Jesus simply invited them to spend time with him. “Come and see” is an invitation to be with Jesus. Just as Jesus did with his disciples, we are to extend the same invitation to our friends and neighbors today. Our goal isn’t to win them to a system or structure but to introduce them to a person – Jesus! Watch more videos at the Mountainview YouTube channel. Looking for a Speaking Coach?

God’s Chosen One (video)

By Church
Jesus was the smartest person who ever lived. His teachings have inspired billions of people. His influence has shaped education, medicine, and so much more. There has never been anyone whose impact comes close to Jesus. Why is that? Ultimately, it’s because we believe Jesus is not only the smartest person who ever lived – he is also the most unique person who ever lived. He was God in the flesh, the living Son of God. In God’s great plan of redemption, Jesus was God’s chosen way of reconciling a lost world unto himself. Watch more videos at the Mountainview YouTube channel. Looking for a Speaking Coach?

Recharge Reinvent or Resign – Part Three

By Leadership
Recharge, Reinvent, or Resign - Part Three Leaders in every generation have faced challenges. In the early days of the Jesus movement, church leaders were thrown to the lions (literally!) by Roman emperors. In modern times, leaders have navigated civil wars, civil rights, and economic depressions and recessions. Those are the large, public challenges. Then there's the personal ones: depression, discouragement, stress, critics, and fatigue. As I survey the leadership landscape at the end of 2021, I believe it is the most challenging extended season of my 30+ years of leading organizations. I will be addressing three ways a leader can approach this season of life and leadership. Each of them are equally valid, depending on your situation and the needs of your organization. If we lead long enough, we will likely experience all three. Click here to read the first post or second post. Resign Your Leadership Ouch! Just...

Have You Met the New Neighbor (video)

By Church
At Christmas time, we hear two words that speak to the unique nature of Jesus. One is Emmanuel: God with us. The other is Incarnation: God in flesh. It is the unique nature of Jesus that sets Christianity apart from other world religions. It was no ordinary baby who was born in Bethlehem. When Jesus spoke in the Gospels, people were hearing the voice of God. Finally, when Jesus died on the cross, he wasn’t just another execution carried out by the Roman government – he was the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world (John 1:29). While Jesus did become flesh and move into our neighborhood, your heart is really the place he wants to live. Watch more videos at the Mountainview YouTube channel. Looking for a Speaking Coach?
