I am excited to host my first coaching network for senior pastors! As many great leaders have said, “Leaders are learners”, and I am still learning a ton! I’m committed to be a lifelong learner. One of the ways that I have learned is by going to conferences. Almost every year I’ve been a senior pastor, I’ve been to a church or leadership conference. Conferences have enhanced my ministry in a wonderful way but the greatest impact on my life and ministry has come from smaller coaching and roundtable environments. I have received so much guidance, wisdom, God moments and lifelong friends from coaching network environments. Now it’s a true joy to be able to offer other senior pastors the same kind of opportunity! If you are a senior pastor and have a desire to grow, connect and learn this could be exactly what you’re looking for. It’s a 5 month coaching network! Please click here for more details.
The very basic teaching, belief AND DOCTRINE OF God's true Church therefore is based on the righteousness of and obedience to the law of God. That law is LOVE. But it is not human love. Human love cannot rise above the level of human self-centeredness. It must be "the love of God...shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy [Spirit]" (Rom. 5:5). Ancient Israel could not really obey God's law--they could have kept it according to the strict letter of the law. But since love is the fulfilling of the law and they had only human self-centered love, they could not have kept the law according to the spirit--because the Holy Spirit had not yet been given.
