Raising Up Leaders 1 – A New Concept of Leadership

RAISING UP LEADERS

RAISING UP LEADERS 1 - A NEW CONCEPT OF LEADERSHIP

JAKE STIMPSON | LEADERSHIP | EARLY CHURCH | BOOK OF ACTS | EQUIPPING THE SAINTS | TRAINING

When Jesus launched His church, it was a kingdom operating under radical new concepts of leadership. Rather than finding leaders from among the nobility, the skilled, the strong, or any number of other criteria, Jesus found His leaders from among normal people coming from all walks of life. He took them, with all their hang-ups, imperfections, and flaws, and raised them up to become pillars in His new Kingdom. This was a radical new concept of leadership, one that is ingrained in the DNA of the church to this day. So what are you going to do about it? Will you let Jesus raise you up to carry the burden of leadership in His church? Or will you let others have all the fun? 🙂

PREACHING THE GOSPEL

PREACHING THE GOSPEL 1 - THE GOSPEL IS THE ANSWER

JAKE STIMPSON | PREACHING THE GOSPEL | GREAT COMMISSION | ROMANS 1 | ROMAN EMPIRE

What would you do if you lived under a tyrannical government with corrupt leaders who demanded your absolute obedience? Leaders who emptied the treasury for their own perverse pursuits, leaders of such moral depravity and brutal violence that it would shock even the most hardened heart? What would you do if the people around you were indifferent to suffering, if right and wrong didn’t mean anything anymore, if the whole world seemed to have gone mad all at once? That’s the world into which Jesus launched His church with a simple command – preach the Gospel. If the Gospel was the answer in the first century, the Gospel is still the answer today. Church, we need to get serious about proclaiming what Jesus has done.

JAKE STIMPSON | CHURCH | NEW TESTAMENT | BODY OF CHRIST | HISTORY | MISSIONARIES | REFORMATION | ACTS

Missionaries vs Cannibals! Teachers vs Tyrants! Preachers vs Pioneers! Jesus promised that He came to change everything. He wasn’t joking. You need to hear these incredible true stories of men and women of God throughout history who did the seemingly impossible and saw darkness, injustice, evil, and tyranny flee before the spread of the Gospel. “I will build my church and the gates of Hell shall not prevail” – Matthew 16:18

Though the church has been anything but perfect, as the Kingdom of God has expanded throughout history, God has used normal people like you and I to invade the darkness and bring light. Follow along today as we look at some of the men and women God has used to overthrow injustice and evil throughout the generations, particularly in combating the violence of the Roman Gladiator fights and the evils of slavery. And if He could do as much in their day, what will He do in ours?
