Ep. 61: J.D. Greear (Part I)


On this episode of the CKM Podcast, Clayton sits down with pastor and author J.D. Greear. Greear is the pastor of The Summit Church in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina and the author of many books, including Gaining by Losing:  Why the Future Belongs to Churches That Send Stop Asking Jesus into Your Heartand Gospel:  Recovering the Power that Made Christianity Revolutionary

"The best proof that you are a follower of Jesus Christ is the fact that you are in a posture of repentance and faith towards Him at this very moment." 

Greear talks about his experience planting and growing churches, creating a missional culture in his congregation, and balancing many different things with having a healthy relationship with his wife, kids, and people around him. 

"Your quality of life is going to be determined by the quality of friends in your life, not by the size of the audiences you speak to." 

This episode is for anyone that's part of a church plant or growing church, needs to find balance between work and family, or looking to recreate a sending culture in their church or ministry.

"We don't measure our success by our seating capacity, but by our sending capacity. We want to be a leadership factory."
