The Hardest Thing I’ve Ever Done

Starting People’s Church 10 years ago this Mother’s Day was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Here are some reasons why:

1. It required me to step out in faith like never before.

2. I risked everything to get the church started.

3. Nowadays people are wanting to raise 100k to 200k in startup costs. I suppose this can be a good thing, but we had no commitments and that made it difficult.

4. I didn’t take a salary from the church for the first year.

5. I took a part-time salary from the church the second year.

Back To Back Record Weekends

People’s Church just experienced back to back record setting weekend attendance and salvations! Easter was amazing and this Sunday with Rev Run was amazing! Let me share some thoughts and lessons about back to back record weekends.

1. It takes a lot of planning behind the scenes to coordinate and pull off back to back record setting weekends with the video elements and performances we did.

2. It takes amazingly committed and unselfish volunteers who understand that it’s all about more changed lives. Our church family stepped up in a wonderful way, and because of their continued hearts to serve our city, lives were changed.

3. Many, many people attended on Saturday night, 8:30AM or 1PM to free up seats in our 10AM and 11:30AM service times! Once again our people understand and are passionate about more changed lives and I’m grateful that they have caught the vision and are willing to do whatever it takes to reach people far from God.

4. Our staff has worked like crazy to pull off these amazing back to back record setting weekends. I want to say a HUGE thank you to our staff! Because of all of your hard work, more lives were changed and over 900 people gave their lives to Jesus! You all are superstars and Tiffany and I love you all!

5. Record setting weekends reveal areas that we need to improve. It’s always a good thing to see the areas that need to be improved so that we can now make the changes so that more lives will be changed. We don’t ever want a broken system to stop us from reaching more people for Jesus.

6. I give all glory to God! We pray, we fast, we work hard, we plant seeds but ONLY God brings the harvest and changes lives! I’m thanking God for His power moving in a mighty way in our services!

7. This next Sunday is week 3 of our series Run To The House! Connect 4: Be at church 4 weeks in a row! This Sunday we are giving away thousands of prizes including flat screen televisions, $100 gas cards, Rev Run autographed gear & Adidas shoes and MUCH MUCH more! If you will Run to God’s house, God will change your house!!

Leaders Set The Tone

Yesterday, I pointed out how a leader can have a negative impact on the people they lead. Today, I want to point out how a leader can have a positive impact on the people they lead.

1. A positive and optimistic leader infuses a bright future into the people they lead because the leader sets the tone.

2. A leader who remains calm, cool and collected in the face of difficult times infuses peace and stability into the people they lead because the leader sets the tone.

3. A generous leader infuses generosity and sacrifice into the hearts of the people because the leader sets the tone.

4. A servant leader infuses a culture of servant hood into the hearts of the people because the leader sets the tone.

5. A leader who walks in integrity infuses trust and confidence into the hearts of the people because the leader sets the tone.

6. A leader who won’t tolerate bad attitudes, fighting and gossip in their organization infuses unity into the hearts of the people because the leader sets the tone.

7. A leader who casts big vision infuses inspiration into the hearts of the people because the leader sets the tone.

8. A leader who loves Jesus with their whole heart infuses a passion for God into the hearts of the people because the leader sets the tone.

The Leader Sets The Tone

One of the greatest truths a leader has to embrace is people follow their leader. The leader sets the tone whether they like it or not. Here are some ways that the leader sets the tone.

1. If you are a negative person, you will have a negative work environment because the leader sets the tone.

2. If you don’t value people, people will be devalued because the leader sets the tone.

3. If you are lazy, people won’t get their job done in an efficient manner because the leader sets the tone.

4. If you do more talking than producing results, then results won’t get accomplished because the leader sets the tone.

5. If you are stingy, then you will have a culture of being a tightwad and of selfishness because the leader sets the tone.

6. If you don’t care about reaching people far from God, then inwardness will be the focus because the leader sets the tone.

7. If you don’t tell people how they are doing at their job, then ambiguity will be prevalent because the leader sets the tone.

8. If you don’t know where you are going, your people surely don’t because the leader sets the tone.
