THE START OF A DREAM
Welcome to the Local Church Leader website! I am so grateful that you have stopped by to check out what is happening! It may not seem like much to you, but you are scrolling through and clicking on a dream. This is a dream that started some time ago when one of the leaders at the church I lead (www.mylifespring.ca) began to prophetically pray for more divine stories. That prophetic prayer has stuck with me and has been repeated over and over as we celebrate every person and their story at our church.
One morning God began to speak to me about the stories that are happening through YOUR leadership, your ministry, your church. And as I prayed, I was suddenly overwhelmed with the goodness of God and the many stories that are happening all around the world. Then I had this thought, “Let’s try to capture it!” Which was then immediately followed by another thought…
“That is literally the dumbest idea you’ve ever had.”
And believe me…I’ve had a lot of dumb ideas (my wife can confirm).
However, God wasn’t going to let it go. A good friend of mine, Dr. Mark Jones from Mannahouse Church in Portland, Oregon (www.mannahouse.church) was visiting our church for a weekend of prophetic ministry and I happened to toss this silly idea his way. Well, to make a long story short, by the end of the weekend we were recording a podcast together as a seed expression of what God desired to do.
So began the dream of the Local Church Leader website.
My desire is to tell your story to other pastors and leaders. Maybe God is using you in an amazing way to touch lives…but nobody really knows about it. Well, I would love to tell your story! On top of that, there may be resources and ideas you’ve created that would be so helpful with others. So why not put it all in one place where other leaders can come and be inspired? Maybe it’s a story of victory, maybe it’s a story of pain. But either way, your life and leadership can help someone else who is looking for help in an area where you have experienced a breakthrough.
Right now, we are starting with a leadership blog and we are working on a podcast which will be up and running soon. In the meantime, if you have a story to tell, I’d love to hear from you. Email me what God is doing in your corner of the world and let’s celebrate what God is doing through you! Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org – I’d love to tell your story!
And would you do me a HUGE favour! Please sign up for our newsletter so that we can keep you informed of everything that is coming your way. (We won’t spam you every day, I promise!) I don’t want you to miss any chance to be inspired by all God is doing through regular people like me and you!
