This week, Exponential has launched a number of shows.

It’s a privilege to host Frontlines: Tackling Current Issues Facing Planters and Planters with Daniel Yang, Director of the Send Institute and former church planter currently working on his Ph.D. on Intercultural Studies.

These are strange days that we find ourselves living in, and over the coming weeks, we will unpack some of the most innovative principles that leaders and planters have tapped into to help them push the boundaries of the kingdom forward.

On the frontlines of kingdom advancement, you’ll find a host of players who have been able to think outside the box and blaze new trails as pioneers in the past have like J. Hudson Taylor, William Carey, John Wesley, and many more.

Each time those players took the field, the Gospel gained more ground.

During this week’s episode, Daniel and I were asked what it was like to work with the city authorities and Daniel said something very profound.

He termed working with the city as “being mentored” by them.

I had never thought about it from this perspective before, but as I reflected on my experiences with mayors and school boards, that is exactly what took place.

Sometimes people put language to what we’ve experienced or feel in our soul.

My hope is that this will happen to you as you listen in on our conversations over the coming weeks.

After being involved in church planting for decades (I’m getting old), I relate more everyday to the phrase “Ancora Imparo” attributed to Michelangelo in his autumn years. The phrase is translated: “Still I learn!”

Every church planter and leader still has much more to learn, if only he or she will become a student. I’ve learned that there are people far smarter than I am, and if I’ll listen to them, I’ll gain in wisdom and knowledge. For they who walk with the wise, become wise (Proverbs 13:20).

Come walk with us every Monday at 2:00 p.m. ET for the Frontlines show.

We are better together!

“I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one—I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”
John 17:22-23
