The Power of Mastering Central Support

2014 LEADERSHIP NETWORK CONVERSATIONS CONFERENCE


In this 24-minute conversation from the 2014 Leadership Network Conversations Conference, Stephen Smith, Gathering Pastor at First Baptist Church in Houston, Texas, shares his experiences as part of a leadership team overseeing a multi-site church. Having launched three campuses with First Baptist Church, two of which occurred on the same Easter Sunday in 2013, Stephen offers candid reflections on the many lessons he has learned from both his successes and his missteps.

Rather than expanding for the sake of growth alone, Stephen discussed how his church strove to anticipate the potential blessings of God so that they were prepared when they arrived. As you consider how God may be leading you to expand your ministry and empower new leaders, take time to rest in gratitude for the ways God has blessed your church. Let what He has done in the past be your foundation moving forward.
