It’s HERE! Tomorrow I’m co-teaching a seminar with Nelson Searcy called Maximizing Easter. Why I’m so excited about this opportunity is this. The teaching in this seminar can help churches reach and keep more unchurched people for Jesus!
Want to know the coolest part about it? The proven strategies will work in any church culture (I’ve seen it myself.) and help you as a pastor/leader disciple your current people. If I sound like a commercial I don’t mean to. I have watch us break our records for attendance and salvations on Easter over and over because of the teaching we’ll give tomorrow.
I’m only hosting this event to help other churches. I want to see all the churches that are preaching the Bible, grow. I want to see your church reach more people. We are losing money on this seminar ($25/church) just to get this information out there.
One of the point that will be taught is the Principle of Spiritual Readiness. Jesus comes to fisherman, guys that has been mending their nets and cleaning their nets…you know… getting ready to catch fish. Not getting ready to fish more that day because they had fished all night and caught nothing. (Luke 5)
Luke 5:3-4 tells us AFTER he taught them. He told the fisherman, let down your nets for a catch.
Same boat (same church)
Same leaders (Peter, James John)
What was different? Jesus taught and then told them where and how to cast their net.
Maybe you’ve grown tired, fishing with no results. Maybe you say we’ve tried some church growth strategies that didn’t work. Try again. Listen to teaching again.
Our job is to get ready. To clean and prepare the net (the local church). The Principle of Spiritual Readiness says if we prepare, He will bless. It we are ready when comes, He will bless. I don’t understand it all but if we aren’t ready when He comes to us, He’ll pass by like the 5 foolish virgins. (Matthew 25)
The fisherman had prepared the net. They didn’t know Jesus would ask them to fish so soon but because their net was ready, He could bless them in abundance.
Is your net ready for His blessing? If not, teaching can help. Come this event or
