I have played this scene many times in my mind, mostly when Ben and I are walking in the park. Ben and I suddenly found ourselves surrounded by dogs. Many dogs. Ben, being the fearless protector of his dad would bark. All the dogs would bark and moved closer. The house was too far away. Ben and I would not make it. I dragged him up the slide in the playground. And there, I defended ourselves from the dogs. Read more…

LEAD2016 – Day 3 Session 2 – the Leader that Follows

Pastor Joseph Bonifacio

This is like an oxymoron. Why should the leader follow? The culture tells us the leader leads. To follow is weak. Do we have strong leadership that splits and that grows the church but at the same time is diminishing the church? Or do we have a weak leadership that stays together? Read more…

LEAD2016 – Day 3 Session 1

Pastor Gary Skinner, Watoto Church

The pathway to great leadership is through the door of servanthood.

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature[a] God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;  rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature[b] of a servant,

We should not be afraid of the devil. He should be afraid of us for greater is He that is in us that he is in the world. Read more…

LEAD2016 – Day 2 Session 1 – Fruit that Follows

Pastor Jeffrey Rachmat, JPCC

The Word of God does not change your situation. The Word of God changes your perspective. When our perspective is changed, the way we look at the situation will be different. If we only hear what we want to hear, we cannot be changed. Truth is sometimes contradictory to the reality we face. The way we see the problem is the problem. We see the problems with man’s eyes. When we have the truth, we are elevated to see the problems as God sees it. We do not deny the problem but we see it from another angle. Read more…
