He spoke on leadership principles he learned after 30 years in ministry.

3 Sunlamps That Can Blind Us
The Importance of Numbers"Bigger is better" causes you to have to feed the beast.Because of this, my vision was burned. The Pace of LifeDeadlines, Due Dates, & DemandsIt became more of a sprint than a marathonAn outcome of this was a longing for isolationThe Constant ComparisonComparing yourself to other ministries & other people 10% of people are not going to like you. These are not immoral issues, but the problem becomes when we focus on them.

How do we turn off these lights that can blind us? Here are his learnings:
Bigger isn't Better, Better is BetterNumbers feed our insecurityHurry is the Enemy of the Depth I found depth with people, within myself, and with Jesus.You can't rush relationships, discipleship, or love.Comparison Quenches PeaceGod crea…

Worship w/ Shane and Shane & Bethany Dillon at #d62012

Here are a few lyrics we sang at D62012 on Friday as we were led in worship by Shane & Shane & Bethany Dillon. What a powerful time of worship! I enjoyed the girl/guy song called Trust in You.  You can see link to YouTube below.

We Are Here For You
Let our praise be Your welcome
Let our songs be a sign
We are here for You, we are here for You

Let Your breath come from heaven
Fill our hearts with Your life
We are here for You, we are here for You

To You our hearts are open
Nothing here is hidden
You are our one desire
You alone are holy
Only You are worthy
God, let Your fire fall down

Let our shout be Your anthem
Your renown fill the skies
We are here for You, we are here for You

Let Your Word move in power
Let what's dead come to life
We are here for You, we are here for You

We welcome You with praise
We welcome You with praise
Almighty God of love
Be welcomed in this place

Watch video of Trust in You

One thing remains
Your love never fails
It never gives up
It never run…

Mark McPeak at #d62012

Mark McPeak is Director of Advancement at Free Will Baptist International Missions. He is author of Grace in the Empty Spaces, a study of the one another passages in Scripture.

His topic was "Grace in the Empty Spaces of My Marriage"

Lois asked Mark, "Do you want to be right or do you want to be happily married?"

Over time in our relationship, empty spaces developed. How are you going to fill those spaces?
With suspicion, mistrust, anger, bitterness, resentment?What was the critical input he was missing? His wife's perspectiveShe was on one side & I was on the right side  How About You?Where are you on the continuum between really good and not good? "Being right or winning is a really stupid relationship strategy"

Fred Luter at #d62012

Fred Luter, President of Southern Baptist Convention & Pastor of Franklin Avenue Baptist Church from New Orleans, LA.

His topic was "Reaching Men & the Non-Traditional Family"

"Our families are in trouble including those in the church."  Our families and marriages are under attack by the Enemy. This began in Genesis 3.

The cycle of divorce was alive and well in the Luter family (great grandfather, grandfather, parents). Only by the grace of God that I am what I am today!"

"I am confident our kids can never be what they have never seen." Luter prayed, help me break the stronghold of divorce in my family. 
"If you save the man, the man will save the family. It all starts with the man." Our nation won't get right until God's people get right!

"It's OK to be hen-pecked if you have a good head."  48% of Franklin Avenue Baptist Church is men.

Once at church, as pastor I need to equip them from the Word of God.

His topic is "What's the Big Deal with Pornography?"

Pornography: Comes from the Greek: pornographos which means "writings about prostitutes"

Facts about Pornography:
42.7% of all Internet users view pornEvery second 28,258 Internet users view pornWorldwide pron revenue is over 100 billionEvery day 2.5 billion pornographic emails are sent30% is now viewed by women  As a church, when are we going to wake up to realities of pornography?

Aaron Shust at #d62012

Awesome worship was led by Aaron Shust on Thursday.  I loved how he incorporated hymns in the morning with more contemporary music in the afternoon and evening.  He is a gifted worship leader.  Check out his site here

Here are a few lyrics we sang today:

"Your name is a strong and mighty tower. Your name is a shelter like no other....Cause nothing has the power to save but Your Name.""My Savior loves, my Savior lives
My Savior's always there for me
My God He was, my God He is
My God He's always gonna be." My hope is in you Lord, all the day long
I won't be shaken by drought or storm

She always starts her talks by reading Joshua 1:8.

"The star of these stories is God, not the people I share about."

She shared from Mark 4:35-5:20

"We have two choices everyday: Yes, Lord or No."
"He silenced the storm with a word from His mouth. We have those Words in the Bible."
"We serve a Savior that doesn't want even one to be lost."

Richard Ross is speaking now at D6 Conference.  Speaking with shirt untucked and said if invited back next year, he will wear skinny jeans. Richard Ross is professor to the next generation of youth ministers at Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth.

Concentric Circles of the D6 Movement
MeD6 begins with a believer standing alone in the middle circle. John 15: 1,4Most Scripture focuses on "us in Him."Follow Me (focus at beginning of Jesus' ministry) changes to Abide In Me.We need to be in awe of His Majesty & also realize our intimacy with Him."Just wait until you get to abide with me all the time."

       Your running around busy for Him is not as important as your relationship to Him.

Pete Wilson at #d62012

Pete Wilson is up first at D6 2012.  Check out  Pete's blog.

"When in the Bible did God give anyone an easy task?"

In this room, we have thousands of people with a calling with massive implications. The temptation is to focus on wrong things.

"What matters most is not what you accomplish, it's who you become."

Our primary responsibility is to be present with Him.  John 15 says "Remain in me and I will remain in you. . . .Apart from me you will do nothing.

The branch is to abide; to remain.

"We are, therefore we act." The Christian life is to be committed to God. I must stay connected to Him and if I do fruit will come.

Plan A is the family. 

Are we going to choose God-sized obedience or a man-sized solution?

Mark Matlock at #d62012

Mark Matlock is wrapping up our afternoon at D6.  You can visit his website here.

His topic was "The Hero's Journey"
 Every story starts with the ordinary life. Next, comes a call to action.After the call to action, usually failure comes.The mentor follows our failures.  What do they give?  Wisdom. A mentor helps the young hero connect to the Vine.As you look at the life of our heroes (i.e. Star Wars, Spiderman, Batman), why are the parents most often absent? Who else from the Body of Christ will be a mentor to your kids?Trials occur Maturity Mark used popular culture to illustrate the hero's journey.  This is a great option to keep us listening after a day packed full of ideas. Thankful for his creativity!

Mistake #1-Separating Marriage and Discipleship

Mistake #2-Start by Writing Your Own Content

It is either terrible or takes forever to writeFind materials and tweak themMistake #3-No Buy-in From Senior Leadership Do not demean those above you in leadershipSenior pastors are not against marriage or marriage ministryMost often they don't understand the vision or how it competes for resourcesDiscover your pastor's language and what motivates themMistake #4-Lack of Authenticity in Leaders A heart that is well is a heart that tells.We want couples to be honest, but we are not honest ourselves.Mistake #5-Careless Design Choices Over-reliance on quick fixes (one-time events)Train leaders well-give enough info and then get startedMistake #6-Not Be…

Going Deeper in Your Teaching Ministry (Christ-Centered and Mission-Focused)

Three ways to define deep:
Depth as "just the facts ma'am"Depth as "insights for Daily Living"Depth as Gospel-Centrality Three ways people hear the question "What is the Gospel?"
Telling the Story for an Individual (Evangelistic Presentation)Telling the Story of Jesus (Exegetical definition of the word)Telling the Story of New Creation (The whole good news of Christianity) Moralism: The Enemy of depth

The Parent Project #d62012

Leon Wirth & Roy Baldwin were presenters of this workshop. Both work for Focus on the Family.  Visit their site here

Challenge: How does the Church make a lasting impact on the community and earn the opportunity to share the Good News of Jesus Christ?

Passion: Reveal God to the World through the Beauty of Family

Why Does Family Matter? What would happen if family disappeared from society tomorrow?

The challenges teens face are always best met when the parents are involved, especially but not exclusively Daddy.

Why Family Matters:
Our deepest pains and joys-and our need to belong and have significance-universally begin with family.This is because the fullest created expression of God's very nature, image, and story is the family.Thus, a life that honors the family in redemptive grace and truth glorifies His image, and so satisfies us like nothing else.A life that dishonors the family disgraces His image, and so shrinks us like nothing else.

Tips For Getting the Most Out of Conferences

I am headed to Dallas tomorrow for the D6 Conference.  I have been to this conference more often than any other ministry conference.  It has the most to offer for my specific ministry responsibilities.  But I know for many people, conferences can be overwhelming.  So, I wanted to offer a few tips for getting the most out of any conference you attend.

Here they are in no specific order:

Pray-(OK-this one should always be first). Ask God about which workshops you attend.  Seek Him for what vendors to visit.  Pray for divine appointments of people you need to connect with.As you choose workshops, pick a few that relate to what you are currently doing in ministry, pick one that is a dream of yours, pick one that might challenge your thinking.  This allows for a broad range of learning to occur.At most conferences, you can win something if you visit every vendor booth.  I have found this is extremely stressful for me.  I walk by all vendors during breaks and browse what they offer.  Then I c…

Highs for the Week

Occasionally, I like to share the highs from my past week.  As a family, we try to do this each evening at supper.

Here are my highs in no particular order:

Hard Conversations

As parent, we are often faced with having hard conversations with our kids. Sometimes it is things others have said or done to them. But sometimes we must seize the moment when kids make unwise choices. I had one of these conversations recently with one of my kids.

I thought I would share the "plan" I used. No matter the issue, I think this would work in most situations. All I know is that I was stressed about the conversation, but spent some time praying and God gave me peace. Always start with prayer!

Here is what I did:

What-Here is where you get out the specifics.  If it is disrespect, late home, etc.  you share clearly what you are here to discuss.   Word-During your prayer time, ask God for specific verses that relate to the what.  As a parent, we are not just seeking to make our lives easier, but instead showing our children why what they did is not OK because of God's Word.  Show them the verses and have them read them.  Protect & Provide-God is not tryin…

We have an offer!

It is official.  We have an offer on our house in Iola. We moved from Iola in November 2008 and have been trying to sell the house while renting it over these 4 years.  It has been a rocky & scary road at times as we wondered how we would be able to make ends meet while making double house payments. 

However, God is faithful.  When worry and anxiety came in (believe me it happened more than once), God would answer our prayers.  God did this through unexpected checks in the mail, anonymous cash donations, generous church members who paid mortgage payments, or simply the reassurance we needed by having two offers over the last few weeks.

Do you know the song "Jehvoah Jireh"?  It has been a song that has come to mind often over the last four years.  Here are the lyrics:

Jehovah Jireh
My provider
His grace is sufficient
For me, for me, for me
Jehovah Jireh
My provider
His grace is sufficient for me

My God shall supply all my needs
According to his riches in glory
He will give…

Daddy Fail

Today, I had a great day with my kids on their day off from school.  They helped me set up for Mom 2 Mom & run errands.  We then headed to the Perk and as we were leaving I shut Molly's finger in the car door.  She cried.  I felt horrible.  I classify this as "daddy fail."  I wondered if we were headed to the doctor.  But she ended up being fine.

Only a few minutes later, I was pushing them on the merry-go-round at Children's Park and listening to them laugh uncontrollably. We were able to get a lot done this afternoon and have fun too

So, how about you?  What has been your most recent mommy or daddy fail?

Your Response

Chapter 4 of Explicit Gospel by Matt Chandler discusses our response to Jesus. Here are a few quotes to encourage you to pick up the book.
"Christ's work demands the response of faith, but we want to make donations."  "What I learned in those early days is that the proclamation of the glory of God, the might of God, and the majesty of God brought to bear on the sinfulness of man in the atoning work of Jesus Christ actually stirs the hearts of men. And men respond to that stirring. Some are stirred to belief; some are not." "When we dilute or ditch the gospel, we end up with an evangelicalism featuring special appearances  by Jesus but the denial of his power (2 Timothy 3:5)." "A hearer's response is not our responsibility; our responsibility is to be faithful to God's call and the message of the gospel." "We are never, ever, ever going to make Christianity so cool that everybody wants it.  . . It doesn't need our help anyway…

State Fair

Today I was able to head to Hutch for the Kansas State Fair. All I can say is you can deep fry anything! As a family, we decided to try deep fried cookie dough and were very pleased with our choice.

Bethany was working at Newton Chamber of Commerce booth so the kids and I walked around and played and ate for 4 hours together. It was a fun afternoon.

Some of the rides and games have improved over the years, but for the most part it is the same as it was when I was a kid. Michael Julian, do you remember paying to go to "freak show" with snake woman and other strange and bizarre animals. Well, it is still a show at the fair.

I was proud of my kids and how they walked around and let me do a few things too. My favorite was the ferris wheel. My second favorite was eating at Carlos O'Kelleys on the way home.

All in all, it was a good Saturday as a family. Came home with less money, but a nice change to a normal Saturday routine.

Family Shepherds by Baucham

I am reading through Baucham's Family Shepherds.  As with any book, there are things I agree & disagree with.  Here are a few quotes related to parenting:

"Hence, doing good is something that one can accomplish apart from Christ through proper conditioning.  This is a direct contradiction of Jesus' teaching. . ." "The result is a child-training approach that relies on behavior modification as opposed to spiritual transformation." "As Tedd Tripp writes, "Addressing the child's character places the emphasis on issues of the heart. It enables you to get underneath the behavior and address the thoughts, motives, and purposes of the heart." "This is the heart of formative discipline. We must bring our children back to the cross again and again. We must teach them why they sin, what the consequences are, and how Christ is their only hope." "If you can't find a precept in the Bible, ask yourself why you've deemed the b…

Which Way Should I Go?

As a guy, I hate asking for directions when I might be lost.  I like to use the GPS on my phone, but this can often lead me to go weird ways when I know exactly how to get somewhere.  To prove the point, I have driven to Sterling often (since I graduated from there), but have ended up taking the longer route the last two times I have driven there. 

This driving illustration leads me to direction we need in our lives.  I have several decisions related to ministry and home that need to be made.  At times, I can become overwhelmed with deciding between two good options.  As I was praying on Tuesday, I was pondering these decisions and asked God to speak to me through His Word.  He did.  Here is the Scripture that was brought to mind:
1 Do not fret because of those who are evil
or be enviousof those who do wrong;
2 for like the grass they will soon wither,
like green plants they will soon die away. 3 Trust in the Lord and do good;
dwell in the landand enjoy safe pasture.
4 Take delightin the Lor…
