Practical Stuff for Church Leaders

If you live in the Phoenix area...

You've got to check out this church: Cornerstone Church is in Chandler, Arizona and I had a great time with them this weekend. This is a church that is led well, has a tremendous vision for shaking their community, and isn't afraid of what others might think.

They are starting a series in a few weeks called Bringing Sexy Back, and they are tackling the topic head on. Our culture gets bombarded with messages about how to handle our sexuality, most of them wrong, and here is a church that is brave enough to confront the topic in a delicate, but biblical way. They are putting up billboards, running commercials on TV and in local movie theaters, and sending out 100,000 mailers. I can't wait to see what happens in their community because of their faith.

This weekend I shared the platform for about 20 minutes in each service with senior pastor Linn Winters. He interviewed me about our experience with the Pure Sex series at Granger.

Here is a video link to the service. My part begins about 40% into the service video and lasts for about 20 minutes. You'll also see the video we showed during the service of a compilation of the media reports about Granger's series, including clips from NBC, CBS, Fox News, Mancow, and Crosstalk with Ingrid Schlueter.
