An Update from Church Intensive: Rob and Sean share some about how they and the elders of We Are Church have been feeling burdened for pursuing more from the Lord through fasting as a church.

We are taking our Church Intensive training on the road! We will be hosting one day trainings in the locations listed (with hopefully more to come). The Church Intensive is an invitation to join a couple of our local We Are Church elders in taking a fresh look at the Scriptures and asking God what He wants of the local church.

We will spend time casting vision and sharing convictions, as well as talking structure and creating space for questions. It is our prayer that God will use this experience to reignite your hope and passion for His Bride, and give you practical guidance in how to live out the high calling of Scripture.

[03/16/21]   "Dietrich Bonhoeffer in Life Together titled one of his chapters 'The Day Together' and the following chapter 'The Day Alone.' Both are essential for spiritual success. He writes, 'Let him who cannot be alone beware of community... Let him who is not in community beware of being alone... Each by itself has profound pitfalls and perils.'" - Richard Foster, Celebration of Discipline, page 97

How much time and attention do us leaders in the church give to deep, relational leadership development? To what degree do we prioritize it compared to other things?

[03/09/21]   House church is not the point. Moving from a large building to a living room doesn't do much in and of itself. For us, re-thinking church has much more to do with leadership development, expecting "average" believers to be used by God in powerful ways, expecting everyone to be discipled and make disciples, turning away from consumeristic traps to draw and keep people, and ultimately putting obedience to God's commands as the measure of success rather than numbers.

Letters to the Church, p.41

[03/05/21]   So often leaders in the church feel pressure to be stronger, smarter, more gifted, and more holy than they actually are. Of course we all want to be growing in these areas, but the issue is that many leaders feel as though they can't be real and honest with the community they lead.

What does it mean for leaders in the church that God's "power is made perfect in weakness"? Paul chose to boast about his "weaknesses, so that Christ's power" would rest on him (2 Cor 12:9).

As leaders, we must remember that our church needs God's power more than ours. They need to depend on God more than on us. Let us live in such a way where we depend on Christ's power to rest on us.

Pastor Q&A w/ Francis - The pandemic has created an opportunity for people to shift from focusing on programs and big events in the church to smaller gatherings and deep discipleship. How do we avoid the tendency to possibly shift back out of that as COVID lightens?

[01/13/21]   One of the beautiful things about the church is that it can adapt to the culture it finds itself in. Style of music, type of teaching, place of gathering, etc. are all things that are on the table. Yet unfortunately we have so often dogmatically held to a certain way of doing things. We push our traditions as though they were commanded by God. We encourage church leadership teams to have serious, lengthy conversations around what God has actually commanded of the church, and what are things that we need to hold more loosely. Out of this will come a lot of freedom to change and adapt to the needs and culture around us.

[01/05/21]   To have "20/20" vision implies good perception, clarity of sight. Isn't it interesting that the year 2020 has provided us with a much more sober, honest, clear look at life on Earth? There is a consensus around the idea that "things aren't right" and we are hopeful for things to be fixed. While the majority are simply ready to put 2020 out of their memories, we must press into these feelings and realize that our hope is not in COVID going away, but rather in Jesus returning. Our hope is not in life getting back to normal here, it's in us experiencing true life in Him. Our hope is not in our government or humanity fixing the problems plaguing this world, it's in our God finally fixing everything and establishing His kingdom in fullness for all eternity! Let's be careful that we point people towards the true hope, not the false one.

Francis Chan shares with the Church Intensive Alumni pastors after returning from Hong Kong.

[12/22/20]   According to Scripture, each born again believer in Jesus has a supernatural, amazing gifting from the Holy Spirit that is meant to be used in beautifully dynamic ways to build up the church. Can you imagine each believer in your local church context operating powerfully in their gifting? What sort of impact would that have on the body? On our communities? On the world?

[12/15/20]   One of the clear themes of Revelation is the despair of the world as things get worse and worse, and the contrast of God's people constantly praising Him in the midst of it all. As we find ourselves in strange times with much despair, anger, fear, and chaos, let's join with the various chorus' we see in Revelation crying out how worthy of praise our God is!
