I spent time with one of my star mentees this past week – Ike Reighard. Ike is an amazing communicator. If you have a chance to be around him anytime, anywhere, go out of your way to allow a bit of Ike to rub off on you. He is utterly infectious.
He planted the first NorthStar Church in Atlanta. Now, about eight years later, there are fifty around the US.
Before he planted he has pastored a number of great churches but was ready to plant. He now tells me that in our first conversation I gave him a couple of challenges that ended up spinning him big time.
I’ll pass on one to you here.
Don’t launch or lead a church – reach a city. Think in grand terms – that assumption will affect everything you do from the get go or from where you are now as you proceed forward.
