Dear Leader, I cancelled the EH Leadership Conference which we had held for the last 12 years. Why? I decided to get rid of something good to make room for the best. That best is to train leaders like you to be champions in your church/ministry so your people will be deeply changed by Jesus for the sake of the world. The crisis of shallow discipleship facing the global church is real. With the release of The Emotionally Healthy Discipleship Courses, we can now offer a clear, serious strategy that will lead people into a deeper discipleship with Jesus and change churches. On April 25-26, 2018 we will host The Emotionally Healthy Discipleship Summit – a high-level training conference for Church Point leaders and their teams who are leading, or will lead, The EH Discipleship Courses in their churches. But this Summit is not for everyone. There are prerequisites to be completed first: Review. Read more.

Geri and I just returned, this past Tuesday, from an eventful, seven-day trip with our ministry partners (Ministerio Espiritualidad Emocionalmente Saudavel or MEES for short) in Brazil. I always journal after a trip around the question: “God, how did You come to me, and what did You say?” The following are the top four things I heard: 1. Gift. Every culture and country in the world reflects aspects of the beauty of God (see Revelation 21:24). Brazilians offer a joy, a warmth, an optimism, and a passion for life that is a wonder to behold. I heard God’s invitation afresh to marvel and worship Him for such creativity to place such amazing gifts in so many cultures around the world. 2. Global Church Shift. We experienced first-hand, once again, the shift of the church from Europe and North America to the global South (Africa, Latin America, Asia). The church in Brazil continues to grow. Read more.
I have been thinking and writing about the qualities of emotionally healthy leadership since 1996. Each book (e.g. The Emotionally Healthy Leader) and theme in The EH Discipleship Courses touches a different facet of emotionally healthy leadership. Yet, as I continue on my own growth journey and interact with leaders, my nuancing of these challenges continues to sharpen. The following are the first 5 of my 10 challenges to being an emotionally healthy leader: Deep Loving Union and Surrender. Behind the pressure and demands that seek to cut us off from abiding in Jesus are powers and principalities of evil. To follow Jesus’ voice and will, regardless of where He leads, requires a deep trust developed through a long, slow history of being with Him in secret. This kind of depth cannot be learned in a class or book. Antidote: Faithfulness to spiritual practices. Obedience in the small things. Initiative to position yourself in. Read more.
