EE Leaders | Leadership Lessons Season 1 Episode 22 - Preach The Word
This week Pastor Daniel talks with Pastor David Guzik, Calvary Chapel, Santa Barbara, CA author of Enduring Word Bible Commentary, which contains written commentary on the entire Bible. David talks about the benefits of studying the word of God and the impact it has had on his life. This is a refreshingly candid talk about the realities of what it’s like to teach God’s word in season and out of season. “We’re talking about, through both personal study and the power of the preached Word, Jesus Christ coming to his people and those who will become His people through His word.” What is Biblical preaching? What about topical teaching? What is his process for preparing to teach a Bible message? What study tools does he recommend? This is a workshop on expository teaching from one of the best.

In this week’s One Piece of Advice, Pastor Glenn Shaffer, Claremore, OK, shares his advice on having a passion for prayer.
One Piece of Advice - A Passion for Prayer
Pastor Glenn Shaffer, Claremore, OK offers his advice after 40 years in ministry—have a passion for prayer. Jesus said, “The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” (Mark 14:38) “You never reach a place in your spiritual life where your flesh is not weak.” Prayer is the one thing that is absolutely required for ministry. “It is the foundation of us being Spirit-led leaders. Because without that, we’re just giving information.” Begin to develop time in prayer. “Your people will pray because you pray.” Find out more about Pastor Glenn’s ministry, Apostolic Teams International at apostolicteams.com.
