Leaders Must Live in Rhythm

A couple of weeks ago NCC had its summer leadership summit.  We typically provide leadership training, and this summer Heather, our Discipleship Pastor, decided to do a series of  TED-style talks around the theme “Leaders must…”

I spoke on living in rhythm.

The other topics/speakers were:

Transition and Inauguration

No, it’s not what you’re thinking. For the past couple of weeks Dave Schmidgall and I have been transitioning into the campus pastor role at NCC’s Union Station location. Today was Chris Jarrell‘s last day there, and Dave and I handled most of the campus pastor responsibilities while Chris was preaching.

Heather Zempel wrote a post a couple of days ago about how doing church in DC’s Union Station can be interesting. Heather had this to say:

Come to the 9am service at Union Station and you might run into the naked homeless guy taking a bath at the sink. I’m not kidding. That’s what Pastor Dave encountered one morning during service set-up. Doing church in movie theaters keeps things interesting…and keeps church closer to what Jesus probably had in mind, IMHO.

Last week I took care of a dead mouse, no big deal. This week I got to peel a condom off the floor. I’d consider that my inauguration.

P.S. We’re always looking for volunteers. Let me know if you’re interested in helping out.
