In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins is joined by Abe Cho, the senior pastor of Redeemer East Side in New York. During their conversation, they discuss creating everyday missionaries and why protecting Sabbath is vital for being healthy.
“A worship service centered approach to reaching our culture may not be the way to go anymore.”
“There are a huge number of barriers someone has to go through to go into a church.”
“How do we form Christians to be everyday missionaries so that the place of gospel ministry is actually in the everyday spaces and places of their lives?”
“Our culture is understandably looking for genuine, authentic connection.”
“If I miss this Sabbath, I don’t know how my next week is going to go.”
“We’ve tried to invite our kids into the process, to say are there a couple of friends in our building that God has made a connection and you like hanging out with?”
“To follow Jesus is to follow Him wherever you go.”
“Christians are always going to be joyfully different than the world.”
“I would tell my 20-year-old self that the inward journey is vital for the outward ministry.”
