Jeff Vanderstelt: Equipping People for Ministry in Every Sphere
Jeff Vanderstelt, pastor and leader of SOMA Communities in Tacoma, WA, begins his talk with this phrase, “If you don’t know the context in which you are doing ministry, then you are going to be pretty ineffective for ministry.” He goes on to unpack the essence of leadership as knowledge, belief, and skill, and explains the biblical principle of making our leadership transferrable.
This session helps us understand how to preach the gospel to our people and ourselves, with this intent for the church — “What we’re trying to do in the church is not help people learn how to run programs; we’re trying to teach them how to be gospel-people in everything we do.”
