“Players gonna play…Haters gonna hate…I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, I shake it off, I shake it off.” Leadership lessons from Taylor Swift.
Dan Rockwell, author of the Leadership Freak online blog has crafted this brilliant observational take on success and failure. It’s a must read for all leaders and emerging leaders. It’s food for thought.
This interactive teaching is all about bringing the ‘New Prophetic’ to a new generation of believers. Much of the old style of prophesying in church settings has been deliberately curtailed by many church leaders – and for good reasons. We live in a ‘celebrity culture’ where so many are afflicted by what they’re calling ‘Profile Addiction’ – a need to be seen and heard as a substitute for the Father’s love. We also live in an age where the need for role models necessitates that those who do prophecy are people others ought to aspire to be like.
It’s not what lies before you that counts or what lies behind you, but what lies within you that really counts. For every born-again Christian, Christ lies within them. Dave Gilpin believes that it’s this that enables every Christian to take the leading role in both their private world and their public world.
Is it possible to be far away from God? When someone is running away from God – how far can they get – a mile? a marathon? a million miles? Dave Gilpin, Senior Pastor of Hope City Church looks at the problem and solves it – thanks to some help from the Bible! It’s a Hope City video treat! Enjoy.
Dave Gilpin paints live and talks about how he started painting and how most people’s paint sets (or gifts) lie in cupboard somewhere in their lives. It’s time to get them out and splash them on the canvas of our lives.
Not everyone in church life is in the Premier League. Churches are filled with people who play in the Championship League, League 1, League 2 and a big number that only play in the pub leagues on Sundays. Dave Gilpin explains his findings.
New volunteers and staff members that are seconded to be a part of a dynamic and effective team in the life of your church often go through seven stages before the ‘Team Thing’ really clicks and the authority of God really emerges.
If great teamwork holds the key to a great future, how does one go about creating the ideal team? Why is it that the team we have varies greatly from the team we want!
Why is it that some people who used to paint the town red now spend their time painting their church beige? God hates beige. There’s an enemy lurking around your back door and his name is ‘average’.
Many of the miracles that are publicly testified to in church life are wilderness miracles. Shoes that never wear out, food that simply arrives at the door, and unusual signs in the heavenlies are all things to which we give God all of the glory, but is that the high ground of the miraculous or simply the nursery slopes of the miraculous that God has in store for our lives?
The central aim of every leader isn’t just to get vision, but to transfer the vision to the hearts of the people. If the leader’s vision becomes every person’s vision, the achievement levels will break all records. Vision creation is vital, but vision transfer is essential.
Here’s some quotes and recommendations for the summit and resources, from pastors that are currently hooked on the stuff!
When you come into leadership, there is plenty of wisdom available though not always necessarily true. Dave Gilpin looks at some commonly known nuggets of wisdom and gets the real truth out of them.
I hate it when people start talking about ‘passing on the baton’ to the next generation! I’m not doing it. It’s not that I don’t love ‘em and it’s not that I’m insecure, but I’m simply not going there. The only place I can see that happening in scripture is when someone’s about to die! I’m not planning on it so I’m not performing the ultimate plan for it.
