048 - News & Updates

Thanks for being a faithful listener to the podcast. It truly means a lot to me. As we near the holidays, I am going to take a break from the weekly show. I will post a few updates along the way over the next couple of months to stay connected, but the weekly show is going to catch its breath.

That said, I am lining up some great stuff for 2018. I am working on new seasons with great content that will bring value to you, your leadership and your ministry. One of the ways I am doing that is through a short survey. My goal is to hear from you and a little of your ministry story. I also want to know what ministry questions you might have that we haven't addressed on the show. One of the ways I can add value to your ministry is by talking about the things that mean something to each of you. I want to build your questions and topics into the 2018 season of the show.

The survey will only take about 2 minutes to complete. It's short and sweet. I'm really hoping to hear from as many of you as possible. If you want to be a part of making the podcast even better in the coming year, I hope you'll take a moment of your time to fill out the survey.

I look forward to hearing your Thanksgiving and Christmas stories. May God grant you hope and peace in this season. And may God's name receive glory as you point people toward Him.

Peace.

042 - Honoring Your Host Location

If you are a portable church, this is an episode you don't want to miss. My guest is my assistant, Barbara Martinez. She is an amazing servant and volunteer at our campus. In this episode I talk with her about how to honor our host location. In our case, it's an elementary school. For you it might be a theater, bowling alley, town hall, community center or other place.

If you aren't careful, it can be easy to have a "get in and get out" mentality. We have the building a certain number of hours. We're just going to do our thing and leave. But the opportunity to be a great guest in someone else's building, can lead to great things. Listen in for some great content on ideas for how to honor your host location. 

Some of our conversation boils down to:

  1. Look for opportunities to praise, celebrate and give gifts to those who serve for you.
  2. Build the culture of leaving it better than you found it.
  3. The custodian can make or break your relationship. You better love them.
  4. God will open great doors if you genuinely love your host and care for them well.

Take a listen here to episode 042 of the podcast.
