Choose Daily to Multiply the Mission

2013 RightNow Conference

As facilitators of ministry, how can leaders inspire others to stay faithful to the work that Christ has given them? In this 25-minute session from the 2013 RightNow Conference, Todd Wagner, Senior Pastor of Watermark Community Church, encourages leaders to choose daily to use their gifts to help other people discover, develop and deploy their gifts for God’s glory. 

As you watch this session, take notes and write down thoughts about how this session can impact your role. 

How can your role as a leader provide relief from despair to those you minister to? How is your ministry a source of joy to others?

The work given to us by Jesus is to make disciples so that they can make more disciples and so on. How does your current ministry multiply disciples for Christ? How does your ministry declare the wonders of God to those in your community and city?

Todd said that when a church does not live missionally and when the pastor doesn’t equip the saints for the work God has given them to do, those churches spin off into one of two areas:
  1. Craziness - emotionalism, wild moments, fits of expressiveness, abuse of what it means to speak with the gift of tongues, holy laughter, drunk in the spirit, gold dust, all kinds of chicanery.    
  2. Deadness - teaching the Bible verse by verse, expect marginal notes. Dead with ritual, intellectualism, religiosity, particular doctrine, and it's not a source of the glory of God.    

As a ministry leader, how have you safeguarded against falling into these areas? Are there any areas you struggle with? What needs to improve?

Todd said that Jesus told his disciples that He was going to let them live by faith so that they could bear fruit and that fruit would be the source of witness to others. How do you teach others the live by faith? How do you show others the sacrificial love God has shown you?

Todd said, “…you better go back and look at what you’ve been believing ‘cause God doesn’t want you to run a weekly meeting of bored adults. He wants you to be the means through which those that are gonna turn the world on its head, are reached, transformed, equipped and unleashed."
