    If you’ve had the privilege to know Dr. Don Sisk, you are blessed.

    In fact, one reason I’m so excited about his recently-published biography, Where Only God Could Lead, is that it shares the story of Dr. Sisk’s life for anyone. (In a moment, I’ll tell you how you can get a free copy, signed by Dr. Sisk.) (more…)

    I thank the Lord for the life, ministry, and friendship of Dr. R. B. Ouellette.

    Just before he preached at Spiritual Leadership Conference this summer, we thanked him for his faithfulness in serving the same church for forty years. A pastor marking his fourth decade in the same church doesn’t happen without the grace of God, faithfulness through trials, and compassion for lost souls.

    Dr. Ouellette’s message (which you can listen to here) was from Nehemiah 4 and was titled “Revival out of the Rubbish.”

    In the message, he read a poem, which he had written on persevering through criticism. It was a blessing to me, and I asked him for permission to share it with you. (more…)

    As laborers together with God (1 Corinthians 3:9), it is imperative that we, as spiritual leaders, are not simply maintaining the work of God, but that we are building.

    At Spiritual Leadership Conference 2015, our theme was from Jesus’ words, “I will build my church” (Matthew 16:18). Each service and session was filled with biblical truth on building in the local church.

    Videos of all the services as well as mp3 audio downloads of the workshop sessions are available—all for free.

    The sessions include a wide variety of topics in the following areas: (more…)


  4. Help for Building Local Churches via Live Stream and Smart Phones

    There are some things you can’t learn via YouTube videos. Significant construction would be one of those. I mean, you could probably find a YouTube video on building a dog house, but beyond that, I’m not sure your best place for construction instruction is going to be online.

    But you could gain help online. Which is what we pray the live stream of Spiritual Leadership Conference ’15 will be for those who tune in.

    Throughout this year’s conference, you can access the live stream at lbclive.tv. All of the preaching services and the general sessions will be streamed. Below is a schedule for what will be live streamed the next few days. (A full conference schedule is available at slconference.com.) (more…)


  5. 5 Ways to Get More out of Any Conference

    The best conferences have significant levels of preparation invested ahead of time by those hosting the conference. From the speakers to facilities to schedules to a million other areas of detail, a well-planned and thoroughly-prepared conference will be more effective in presenting truth in a way that delegates can easily assimilate.

    That said, however, not all delegates of the same conference will receive equal value. Some, simply by deliberate actions on their part, will be able to glean more from attending the conference than they would if they had simply shown up.

    What can you do to gain the most benefit from a conference? Below are five suggestions. And because the conference our church hosts, Spiritual Leadership Conference ’15, is just a few days away, I’m applying each of these tips to next week’s conference: (more…)
