In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins and Ben Mandrell are joined by Brad Lomenick, author of The Catalyst Leader and H3 Leadership. They discuss the following questions:
- What have you learned over the years about movements and the value they bring?
- How are you moving forward now?
- What does it look like to bring smaller groups together?
- Do you see the shift happening from just preaching to also gathering and developing leaders?
“If something is God-breathed, just hold on.”
“Nobody wants to see a movement end, but there is a season to movements and it is OK that they wrap up.”
“We have to remove ourselves from the idea that whether it grows or it stops that’s because of me as the point leader.”
“Movements don’t have to be global in nature. They can be neighborly in nature and still be incredibly God-breathed.”
“When you gather influencers, let them be the center of the conversation.”
“The experiences we are creating, how are they different from content that is readily available at all times for free?”
“Content might be the draw, but the connection is what retains people.”
“As a pastor, I need to give the sheriff’s badge to as many of my lay leaders to let them carry the weight of the responsibility of discipleship.”
“Right now and going forward, small is the new big. People want something that is real and that is personal.”
“The reason your church is now unique is because people know each other.”
