Today on episode 33 of the 200churches Podcast we talk with Dan Reiland, the Executive Pastor of 12Stone Church in Lawrenceville, GA, and author of Amplified Leadership - 5 Practices to Establish Influence, Build People, and Impact Others for a Lifetime.
Dan's book, Amplified Leadership, is so practical and helpful for pastors of 200churches who need to rely on what Bill Hybels calls the "Y Factor", or volunteer leadership. Dan dissects the entire process of raising up leaders in the local church.
The best thing you could do is buy Dan's book, in paperback, or on Kindle, and read Part 1- Establish A Relationship, before listening to this episode. It is not necessary, but you will get much more out of it if you do. The reading should not take you more than 20 minutes, and you will be well on your way to growing in your leadership development of others in your church.
We are spreading out our 100 minute interview with Dan over five months, to give you the opportunity to read the book, and begin to practice what you are learning. Here is the schedule for this 5-Part series:
August 28 - Part One: Establish A Relationship
September 25 - Part Two: Engage A Follower
October 30 - Part Three: Embrace A Team Member
November 27 - Part Four: Coach An Apprentice
December 25 - Part Five: Mentor A New Leader
Again, this is a pace of learning that allows you to implement what you learn in your 200church. This moves the podcast episodes from encouraging, to equipping, if you will get Dan's book and begin to learn. The principles in this book are easily applicable in any size church! And, the book is a whopping $10 on Amazon.com.
We hope you enjoy our conversation with Dan. We respect you and value you as a pastor of a small church! The people in your church are blessed to have your heart, love, and leadership in their lives!
Here is a link to the book by Samuel Chand that Dan mentions in this episode: Cracking Your Church's Culture Code.
