Pathway

You are to walk in every pathway that the LORD your God commanded you, so that life may go well for you, and so that you will prolong your days in the land that you will possess.’ Deuteronomy 5:33 With so many bible reading plans, devotionals, books, and discipleship tools out there I often wonder what tools I should be using to “walk in every pathway that the Lord” has commanded for me. Because Deuteronomy links pathway to command, I get a…

Simply Supernatural

The Introduction to Simply Supernatural So this week I turned the corner and got into the final straight of finishing my next book: Simply Supernatural – the simplicity of the Holy Spirit. I am so grateful that there are a few of you that are excited to help me edit and review this book. But I thought that I would publish the introduction to you and get your thoughts. I am still awaiting the edited version of this introduction from…

Devoted to the Word

There is so much we take for granted. Today I attended a funeral of a friend and the speaker made the suggestion that in many areas of life we are ok with not really understanding things as long as they work… like your motor car or your mobile phone etc. We take the intricacies of things for granted as long as we get what we want or it does what we need it to do. I got to thinking that…

DISCOVER Matthew 28:18-20 is our commission from Jesus. The commission starts with the word “Go.” Jesus uses that word to get us moving. When it comes to this commission Jesus wants us to have whatever we need to get it done!  Romans 12:6-8 speaks of the gifts that we have been given to accomplish our great commission and it uses similar language.

Our ministries vision statement is simply a summary of a collective story. Whatever our ministries vision, it is what we have been called to do collectively. An organization like your ministry is the sum total of personal Ideas, visions; purpose and direction. It is…

YOUR DIGITAL STRATEGY 3 The term digital strategy in itself is flawed. By calling it a digital strategy it implies that we have other non-digital strategies, and yet the very success of your digital strategy and approach is how easily it co-exists with your physical world ministry strategy. It also creates the question – what is real-world and what is digital?. To a person who is unable to leave their home for whatever reason, any digital contact they have IS…

YOUR DIGITAL STRATEGY 2 Digital channels and their consumption by your audience move and shift with trends and generations. Organizations, ministries included, have positioned themselves digitally depending on their message and product – choosing the best digital channel that would get them the best sales. But if we are going to take our mission and vision to the audience God has laid on our heart in a way that makes people feel “genuinely loved” (Romans 12:9), we have to sacrifice…

YOUR DIGITAL STRATEGY 1 For a long time, ministries have simply adopted their vision or mission statement as their digital purpose. And while the essence of the statement is very applicable to a ministry’s digital behavior, each element of the mission and vision statement needs to be digitally understood and a strategy decided upon to see those elements implemented. Your strategy needs to capture the essence of your ministry but clearly articulate how that vision and mission will be translated…
