Team Based Leadership in the Faith Avenue w/ Mike Rasmussen

In this episode, host Anthony Mullins interviews Mike Rasmussen. Mike is the Superintendent for GCI churches for North America and the Caribbean. Together they discuss how the Faith Avenue practically fits within the larger GCI leadership structure. “It is so much better to have a team of people working, and serving, and doing ministry together. It is actually more freeing, even though it is scary in the beginning. It is actually more freeing when you a team of people that you trust, you empower, you support, you cheerlead from the sidelines and say, “Go, be the best Avenue Champion you can be!”.

In those moments, it is not programmatic we are not seated shoulder to shoulder with everyone facing the pulpit, listening to the pastor. This time we are face to face, and get to hear the stories of people. And what we see is how God is moving in the lives of each and every... Read the article

Faith Forward w/ Greg Williams

In this episode, host Anthony Mullins interviews Dr. Greg Williams. Greg is the President of Grace Communion International. Together they discuss our denominational theme for 2021, Faith Forward. “I like the fresh expression of using the term connect group. Because it makes you think, ‘How is this going to be different than what we’ve done in the past?’. Because in the past...a lot of times when we would think about a small group, we would think the pastor is coming to give Bible Study with a group of 8 or 10 people. A connect group is not really about the pastor giving another Bible Study to a small group of people. In fact, I hope for a lot of our pastors they don’t really have to facilitate connect groups. I hope they can... Read the article
