Resourcing the Local Church
HOST: Jeff Lockyer
GUEST: Tom Loewen & Drew Unruh
For most local church leaders these days, Sundays keep coming really fast (every seven days, in fact!). As well, church work seems to be requiring an increasing amount of technical support and expertise, both on Sundays and throughout the week (with web, media, etc.).
How can local churches at smaller scales function more like well-resourced larger churches? And how can local church leaders move their weekend service planning beyond songs and set lists, to offer a greater degree of creativity and media if they currently lack those skill sets?
Join the founders of Ecclevox, a ministry designed to provide “big-church resources for small-church budgets,” and hear from their founders, Drew Unruh and Tom Loewen, about how they’re resourcing the local church in vital ways. Most importantly, discover how your ministry or local church can benefit from the resources they’re creating in order to serve your growing media and technical needs.

Featured Article4 Ways to Strengthen Your Leadership Structure
In a world of increasing polarization, scandals and abuses, people are hungry for a better brand of leadership.

Featured ArticleThe Length of Your Race Determines Your Pace
How hard should a leader push if they want to give their very best? This can be a tricky question to answer. What makes this question so tricky is that its answer is relative. It depends. Specifically, it depends on how long you want to effectively lead. It depends on the span of leadership for which you’re defining “best”.
A fresh approach to ministryFinding Our Way
What if the way the Church is “doing church” is the very reason the world is seeing less of Jesus in it every day?
Beginning with the biblical basics, Jeff Lockyer walks readers through the underlying theology and practical application of how Southridge Community Church has approached ministry for nearly a quarter century. While providing a fresh approach to ministry, the book stimulates how to think-not what to think. It’s written by a local church practitioner for local church practitioners.
By providing clarity to the confused, it helps church leaders find their way. By providing practical examples delivered uniquely in multiple church contexts, it supports leaders in finding their own way. And, most of all, by re-framing the operation of the church around fostering full devotion instead of facilitating consumerism, it enables leaders of local churches to reclaim the lifestyle of Jesus among its people. It supports churches and leaders to find their Way-the Way of Jesus.Buy the Book
