#71: Erik Lawson - Church Planting

CHURCH PLANTING God will never promote you beyond what your character can sustain. Church Planting Birthing a church is like birthing a child. Pregnancy- this stage is the planting and growth of God’s vision for the church that He wants to birth through you. It is so important that this “pregnancy” is taken full-term, not birthed prematurely. During this time, it is important to trust the leaders in your life and their wisdom for timing. It’s one thing to stand next to a leader and feel like you are carrying the weight of that leadership, but you won’t know the full weight of leadership until you get there yourself. Building a Team It is important to surround yourself with people that can come alongside you and lift your hands, not hang off your hands. People that bring solutions, not just problems, are critical to supporting a lead pastor. It’s a privilege to get close to the “spiritual nakedness” of your leader.

#70: Dan Matlock - Be The Church

ABOUT DAN Dan and Kelly Matlock grew up in the Midwest but fell in love with Texas when they moved there in 2003. In 2011 they felt called to start a church in Hays County. Dan loves spending time with his family, being outdoors, playing sports, and driving his motorcycle. He’s an avid football fan in general but a diehard fan of the Green Bay Packers and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. BE THE CHURCH Be The Church: Build an awesome team around you. Before you “have” church, you have to BE the church. When you look at the life of Jesus, he was not surrounded by “Christians” all the time. How can we get in people’s worlds and be the church outside the walls of a church? Get involved in the community. The church is here to serve people. The church exists to show the community what God is like. Serving the community with no strings attached will open doors for relationships later on. Be intentionally close to others churches. When the church wins, the kingdom wins. “
