I’m A Desperate Man! (pt.2)

Here is the second part of Ed Stetzer’s Friday night Verge 2010 sermon on obedience-based discipleship.

In this second part of the sermon, Ed says that “disciples should be missional”.

He also says that church pastors and church systems should empower disciples for ministry rather than dis-empower them by keeping the people dependent on their (the professional, paid church staff) position and “expertise”. Church members, like-wise, should not be content to sit passively and consume the services of the church. 

This spirit of co-dependency between paid professional staff and church members exists in too many churches.

God receives the most glory when His people are engaged in His ministry.
