In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins is joined by Dino Rizzo, author of Servolution and Serve Your City. During their conversation, they discuss the importance of serving in church planting and taking time to listen better to make relationships better.
“We tell all our church planters, make sure you are serving in the community before you are having your first service that way people know why you are there.”
“You don’t have to be a big church to help people.”
“We took half of our staff and put them in 4-5 cities so we could contextualize and make sure that what we are training in the launch is reality in the street.”
“Remember your vision and values and whatever method that is working at that time should serve the vision and value of what you are trying to do.”
“I don’t love people well if I’m into social media too much.”
“There have been days in my life where friendship has carried me through the valley.”
“I’m trying to lead my home through loving, generosity, and listening better.”
“I need to realize they are not a problem to solve, they are a person to love.”
“My life, my work, my church, my message, is just one brick in the house that God is building.”
