Own It

As a growing leader I am always tacking my growth by reflecting on past successes and failures. Obviously one of my failures is spelling (I am working on it). At any rate, at some point in everyone life they get a vision or calling from God. While it burns deeply in your heart you find […]

Matthew 14:16 As evening approached, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food.” Jesus replied, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.” On the […]

The fight, the promise, and the payoff

The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. Psalm 18:2 This verse is power and VERY insightful. As I read this today, something jumped out at me. Why would God be […]

Warrior or Poet?

Discipline No Comments by Josh Schlotterbeck

He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who captures a city. -Proverbs 16:32 In a nut shell: don’t let minor problems yield major responses.

You’re full of potential.

Everyone has potential. It is a scientifically proven fact. Everything in the universe has what is called potential energy. And when that potential energy is activated it is transformed into kinetic energy by a catalyst, it moves into action and generates a reaction. Leadership is that catalyst. It is the process by which the people […]

The good and bad news.

Discipline, Leadership No Comments by Josh Schlotterbeck

I was teaching the Senior High Sunday school class this past Sunday and I realized a very important leadership principal. Timing trumps content! When dealing with issues of faith and practical application, sometimes there is good news and there is also bad news. The good news is the saving grace and the life changing power […]

Knowing is half the battle.

Uncategorized No Comments by Josh Schlotterbeck

If you were a boy growing up in the late 80’s and early 90’s, you were most likely glued to your TV set everytime GI Joe aired. It was the epic depiction of good vs. evil and as usual, the good guys won, every time. The show is remembered for its public service announcements (27 […]

Crock Pot Faith

Spiritual growth happens in the slow cooker of faith; not in the microwave of the moment. So many people live for the moment.  They live from rush to rush.  Sound familiar?  Sunday to Sunday?  I have been letting one experience months ago try and sustain my faith; and it doesn’t work. Paul says in Philippians 2:12 […]
