Three Worlds: One Reality

I don’t remember who connected me to Aaron Renn, but somehow I stumbled upon him. Renn works for a New York think tank and is a cultural critic. 

He also happens to be a Christian. 

As a side project, he writes a newsletter called The Masculinist that reflects on the “intersection of Christianity and masculinity. Though […]

Blurry Vision, Bleak Future

You’ve heard me say it before. If you’ve got to herd cats, you’ll need a bigger mouse.

Your church cats will chase the biggest mouse in the room, and if your Big Mouse Vision is smaller than someone else’s, you’ll lose their attention every time. The wise and successful pastor stays on his/her knees until […]

Great Church Leaders Keep Their Mercy Gift in Check

Most pastors and professional church leaders I know got into the ministry to do… ministry. They’re the kind of people who aren’t just incensed with injustice, they’re compelled to do something about it. When they see a need up close and personal, they’ll move heaven and earth to meet it. If someone they know […]

Easum’s Last Stand

This is the LAST seminar Bill Easum will be doing.

The very last one.
There will be no more.
This isn’t a publicity stunt.
I’m retiring.
Period.

And to date, enough registrations have some in so far that I can say the event sent for February 26-27 is a “GO.”  If you are planning on attending, now is the time […]

Nothing Beats a Meeting

You may be surprised by the title. Who wouldn’t be? I believe it was a Harvard Business School study that revealed that the more meetings we attend, the more our IQ’s drop. 

In this blog, and in our books, we’ve pointed out that the lead pastor needs to bow out of a many meetings as […]

The Last Easum Event … Really

Someone asked me yesterday if this is really going to be my last event or was it just promotion. Hmmm. No one has ever heard me say anything like “this is my last event” before. At 79, it is the last one, I assure you. So, I wouldn’t wait for the next one because […]

Dinosaurs to Rabbits: Chapter 06 Overview

Creating a Multiplication Culture

There’s no question in our minds that this is one of the most important chapters in the book. The fact is, if you can’t change the culture, nothing you do is going to launch a growth culture, let alone a multiplication culture. 

When it comes to changing a congregation’s culture, to be […]

Dinosaurs to Rabbits Webinar: Chapter 05

There are things you can do. Things you should do. And things you must do. In this week’s Dinosaurs to Rabbits webinar, we’ll be looking at the Must Do’s of Multiplication.

This week’s webinar on Dinosaurs to Rabbits: Turning Mainline Decline to a Multiplication Movement will cover the fifth chapter of the book: “The Principles […]

Dinosaurs to Rabbits: Radical Disciples

Chapter 4 is the longest chapter in the Dinosaurs to Rabbits book. By almost double. And the reason is simple … if you aren’t willing to invest in making radical disciples, you cannot – CANNOT – create a multiplication movement. It’s not possible to launch a movement with nominal Christians. Average won’t do it. Pew […]
