Willis Wired: Pray for The United Methodist Church!

Original post at http://www.williswired.com/2014/04/16/pray-for-the-united-methodist-church/


If you’ve been following church-related news lately, you know The United Methodist Church is in turmoil. Some are even calling for schism, seeing no way out of the current mess. The best thing we can do, though, at this point, is PRAY. That’s what the Aldersgate Covenant is planning to do. They have called a […]

Willis Wired: 2014 Confirmation Trip

Original post at http://www.williswired.com/2014/04/08/2014-confirmation-trip/


The Clearfield Cluster of United Methodist Churches offers a two-day confirmation bus trip every few years. We left last Thursday morning around 5:30 and returned home around 10:30 Friday night. It was a full, fast-paced two days! The trip included nine youth from three area churches plus seven adults. We made stops at the Pennsylvania […]

Willis Wired: Leaders Go First

Original post at http://www.williswired.com/2014/03/20/leaders-go-first/


“Leaders go first.” It’s a fairly common phrase. I thought of it the other day as I was reading 1 Chronicles 29. King David, nearing the end of his life, is preparing the nation for its new king, his son, Solomon. Specifically, David is making preparations for the building of God’s temple. The temple was […]

Willis Wired: Character, Competence, & Chemistry

Original post at http://www.williswired.com/2014/03/18/character-competence-chemistry/


I’ve been familiar with these terms for a while. These three Cs—Character, Competence, and Chemistry—are critically important for teams, including church ministry teams! I was reminded of this again lately as I’m reading slowly through Leadership Axioms: Powerful Leadership Proverbs by Bill Hybels. The book includes brief sections on 76 different concepts, including a chapter […]

Willis Wired: “Shaped By God’s Heart”

Original post at http://www.williswired.com/2014/03/12/shaped-by-gods-heart/


I recently read Shaped By God’s Heart: The Passion and Practices of Missional Churches by Milfred Minatrea. I should have included this book in my doctoral dissertation (how leaders shape missional culture), but I missed it! Minatrea’s definition of a missional church is … a reproducing community of authentic disciples, being equipped as missionaries sent […]

Willis Wired: Our Girl is 5

Original post at http://www.williswired.com/2014/03/08/our-girl-is-5/


It’s hard to believe, but Sarah turned 5 this week. Today, several friends and family members, including my dad, who happened to be visiting from Tennessee this weekend, helped us celebrate Sarah’s birthday. Sarah requested the Disney Brave theme, even though she’s never seen the movie (too scary). But, she likes Merida’s bow and arrow! […]
