Stop Training People


Stop training. 

You are probably wasting your time and that of those you are training!  Seriously! 

I say that as a trainer of church planters, church leaders, and church planting catalysts or multipliers.  How many hours do we spend training people?  If we count going to conferences as part of training or retraining, how much time does that add?  And what results are we seeing? 

Please don’t stop reading yet!  I still train and I do organize training events.  But they have changed quite a bit.

The Prince & The Queen

Must-see TV! Maybe not. CBS sure promoted the Oprah interview with Harry and Meghan as if it were the event of the decade. Why not? For millions of us COVID-19 captives, lurking in our houses, tired of Netflix and Prime Video offerings, this was going to be different. The promos promised the potential of a bare-knuckle brawl between the elite of the elites, with Oprah as the referee with her millions of devoted fans.

Fizzle …. Kerplunk!

Turns out this was no different than the daily news of everyday life. Two parties airing their dispute before millions of viewers.


7 Characteristics of Effective Witnesses

Some of the most effective witnesses I've seen have surprised me. They don't look like what I imagine. They aren't necessarily well-educated, or financially stable, or well-established in society.
