Here is a quick snippet from The 200churches Podcast, Episode 37 - which will be released on Wednesday...
This week's episode of The 200churches Podcast (episode 37) features Part 2 of our conversation with Dan Reiland, otherwise known as "The Pastor's Coach". Dan is Executive Pastor at 12Stone Church in Lawrenceville, Georgia. He previously partnered with John Maxwell for 20 years, first as Executive Pastor at Skyline Wesleyan Church in San Diego, then as Vice President of Leadership and Church Development at INJOY.
I (Jeff) got to know Dan in the 90's when I started getting his email newsletter called The Pastor's Coach. Back then there was very little available by way of leadership material for local church pastors. Of course John Maxwell had his Injoy Life Club monthly leadership lesson, but Dan's articles were extremely practical, dealing with everyday situations faced by pastors. I was encouraged and better trained every time I read his articles.
Just this month Dan has written two articles at The Pastor's Coach that address pastors of small churches. These articles are called Big Ministry In Small Churches (parts 1 & 2). In Big Ministry In Small Churches Part 1, Dan shares "six words for small churches." In Part 2 he shares "six words for small church leaders". These are great articles and we encourage you to read them. Here are the links:

These articles give you a sense of Dan's personality and love for the local church and small church pastors.
We are excited to share with you this week part 2 of our conversation with him, where he talks about Engaging Followers. This is taken from part 2 of his book, Amplified Leadership. We talk about chapter 3 - Encouraging people to build them up, and chapter 4 - Inspiring people to follow the vision.
So whether you read Dan's articles from The Pastor's Coach, or listen to Wednesday's podcast episode, or both - we know you will be encouraged personally as you serve your 200church - and minister to real PEOPLE!

DISCLAIMER: We want you to know, Dan has NOT asked us to promote either his book or his newsletter. We get nothing for promoting it, but we hope that you get great benefit from his book, his newsletter, and our podcast! We love supporting, inspiring, and encouraging pastors of small churches - 200churches - and so does Dan! Have a great week, and remember, your leadership matters HUGE in the Kingdom of God!
