Bonus Episode: How Does Jesus-Centricity Change How We Lead - Part 2

53 min

We met with Heather Thomas and Jonny Morrison for part two of a conversation about co- leadership. Inspired to apply a more Jesus-centred approach, Missio Dei Church in Salt Lake City, UT is innovating new forms of mutuality and shared organizational leadership. This bonus episode explores more of the reasons why co-leadership was important for the health and vitality of their church and the practical implications of this leadership model. Other themes include the power of mutuality, the inadequacy of the leader, and the resistance that comes with change. The podcast ends with a powerful conversation about what must die and what must be born in the hearts, minds, and egos of leaders who are committed to leading like Jesus.

Learning From Marginalized Jesus-Centred Voices Around the World

1 hr 2 min

In the west, the Church cannot afford to be sheltered in privilege and ignore the challenges, victories, and kingdom creativity happening in Jesus-centred communities in the developing world. Putting Jesus at the centre means we must learn from our global and often marginalized brothers and sisters in how they're putting Jesus at the centre and the ways they're advancing kingdom creativity. Join us for a fascinating, challenging, and awakening conversation with César Garcia, the General Secretary of Mennonite World Conference (MWC). MWC is a global movement linked to the Radical Reformation, including Anabaptist and Anabapt-ish traditions, with a mission to connect churches around the world for community, learning, and resourcing. César is author of What Is God's Kingdom and What Does Citizenship Look Like? (Jesus Way: Small Books of Radical Faith) by Herold Press.
