Podcast Episode #084

Joining us this week is a great friend of the podcast, Dr. Ronnie Floyd. On this week’s show, we discuss multi-site churches, multi-ethnic church staffing, Millennials, and leadership.

Some highlights from this week’s episode include:

  • The need of America today is a spiritual awakening—a time when God moves and millions come to Christ.
  • We can’t fix ourselves. We need God to do that.
  • Local churches need to be ready for a new kind of leader. The Millennial leader is different.
  • Pastors are one of the few groups that don’t have a residency, and that’s one reason there is such a high failure rate.
  • A true New Testament church should be multi-ethnic, multi-generational, and multi-cultural.
  • Be faithful and intentional to reach the community around your church.
  • The greatest thing you can do for your life, family, and church is to have a deep walk with God.
