Hasn't this been the craziest summer? I just finished my 3rd funeral in 8 days, and I'm bouncing back from camp season... Fall outreach is nearly upon us.
I know you're busy, too. I'll share 3 quick things that have been helpful to me over the past few weeks:
1. Small Town, Big Church Podcast - I was privileged to be a guest on Jon Sander's Small Town, Big Church Podcast, talking about "A Pathway for Discipleship." I don't particularly pastor in a small town, but discipleship principles transfer anywhere. We had a great time talking about creating a discipleship pathway that can be done by anyone, not just the pastor.
2. Rural Matters National Conference (Oct 25-27) - I don't pastor a rural church, but I'm really considering going to this conference in Davis, OK just for some connection with fellow small-church pastors, and to share the NewStart Discipleship Tools message. If you're interested in coming, reply and let me know. If we had a group of 10, we'd get a group rate, and maybe save on lodging, too.
3. Free Webinar Coming Up - I've got a free webinar coming up called "Reach Your Community with a Gospel-Centered Trunk or Treat." I'll be sending a more detailed email about this next week, but I think it's one of the most exciting outreaches that we've ever done here in OKC, and I'm looking forward to sharing it with you!
