When you have a compass, you need to recalibrate it depending on your current location. With the electronic compass on my iPhone I move the phone in a figure 8 several times to allow it to calibrate to my current location. I can’t just pull it out and use it. If the...read more
On my recent trip to Honduras, I was impressed anew with some of the qualities I saw in their extension teachers. An extension teacher is essentially a church planter who has planted 10 churches. At that point, they become a regional extension teacher, providing...read more
Yesterday I wrote about extension chains in Honduras. But what happens when they break or stop functioning? One of the stops Humberto (church multiplication movement leader for the region) made while I was along for the ride was to address one of those cases. One of...read more
In Honduras, they take extension chains seriously. An extension chain is what’s described in 2 Timothy 2:2: And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others. One person shares...read more
When I was in Honduras, I discovered that they define “learning” as something you actually put into practice, not as knowledge. That’s how they structure their training: 75% is practice, while only 25% is input. They figure-- rightly, I think-- that it’s meaningless...read more

Those were the words of a woman none of us had ever met before, out in the middle of what I would consider nowhere. We had traveled 5 hours by truck over rough, rocky roads and stream crossings in rural Honduras, going slowly through mountain switchbacks, when it...read more
I recently returned from what is fast becoming my annual trip to Honduras. For anyone in the church planting field, Honduras is a fascinating study of rapid multiplication without much by way of resourcing. One of the church planters I met on this trip is Gerardo,...read more
After getting involved in a difficult church leadership situation at a relatively young age, I would have had some serious answers to the questions we asked in the last post. At the age of 28, I went through eight months of clinical depression and did not feel I had...read more
In Matthew 5:48, Jesus told people, "Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect." Simple enough. If Jesus said it, it must be something we're supposed to do. Perfect. It sounded so...born-again. Such an apt summary of everything else I was trying to be....read more
For several years, I worked with a ministry that put on retreats for Christian leaders to learn practices that would nurture their spiritual formation - most for the very first time. I watched many of these leaders experience the transformation that comes from these...read more
