The Power of Vacation: Keeping Your Tank Full

Vacation_PlanningLike most pastors, you may struggle when it comes to planning your time away. In my early years of church planting, when I was bivocational, I was greatly challenged in this area until I discovered the power of taking some extended time off.

Though the word “vacation” is not found in the Bible, there’s nothing unspiritual about taking a vacation. Even Charles Spurgeon is known for talking about how they’ve nourished his soul and prepared him for his next season of ministry.

In fact, the greater the demands of ministry, the greater your need to pull away. Here are some strategies you should consider as a pastor when planning your next vacation:

Schedule it well in advance.  For example, I plan next year’s vacation time in October, when I’m planning my preaching calendar.

Be aware of the three types of vacations:

  • Mini-vacation: Lasts two to three days, and is normally planned after a pressured season of ministry. I usually schedule mine after Easter. It generally runs from a Thursday through Monday. It can involve travel, or it can be a “stay-cation.”
  • Regular vacation: Lasts one or two weeks, which you take off around the same time each year. You should build consistency with this dedicated time. It acts as an anchor in your calendar.
  • Extended vacation: After ten years, you should consider taking a month off. This may coincide with a study break or a special anniversary. It’s reserved for certain seasons or celebrations.

Don’t be worn out when you head on vacation.  If you are, this means you’re probably violating the Sabbath or have poor weekly management skills. Rest can be part of your agenda, but if you’re so exhausted that you can’t enjoy it, you haven’t managed your time leading up to vacation. (For more information about rest and the Sabbath, check out my resource The Power of the Sabbath.)

Remember that it’s about not just about rest, but also recreation and recalibration.

  • Dennis Miller Word BubbleRecreation: Something that fills you. Keep in mind that you’re taking this vacation for your family, so that you can spend time with them. You’re making memories with them, so that when you’re older you can reflect on them.
  • Recalibration: Preparing for that next season of ministry. Your stage of life impacts this.

Prepare for your vacation to ensure it’s a true vacation. Nothing will frustrate you and your family more than if your vacation gets cut short or you’re unable to take it because of lack of preparation. Make sure that your church is covered for when you’re away.

Make worship a center of your vacation. Whether or not you attend church when you’re on vacation – either is okay – make sure that you continue to pray with your family. Include regular devotional time with your family, so you can grow closer together spiritually and relationally.

Beware of the “false vacation.” This may be a vacation that’s tied to a denominational meeting, or to visiting extended family, where the focus isn’t on a time of rest and recreation with your immediate family.

Understanding what Jesus Said About Finances

Steve StroopeToday’s blog comes to us from my friend and stewardship mentor Steve Stroope as an excerpt from his book, Money Matters in Church: A Practical Guide for Leaders. Steve is lead pastor of the multi-campus Lake Pointe Church near Dallas, Texas. Under his leadership, the congregation has grown from 57 members in 1980 to a current attendance of more than 11,000. Steve will be joining me as a speaker at the Church Systems Check-Up and Boot Camp this summer (see the PS for more details).

The following treatment is not meant to be exhaustive but representative of Jesus’s teachings on finances found primarily in the Gospels. These are most instructive for Jesus’s disciples in today’s churches regarding their giving. As you develop your theology of financial stewardship, consider the following questions:

  • What principle does Jesus teach in Luke 16:10 – 15 about the two masters: God and money?
  • What does Jesus teach us about how to give in Matthew 6:1 –shutterstock_216280717_clipped_rev_1 4? How important are one’s motives to what one gives?
  • According to Matthew 6:19 – 24, the Savior teaches us where we should store up our money. What does this reveal about where our hearts are and what we truly value in life?
  • What does Jesus teach about the material needs of his true disciples in Matthew 6:25 – 34?
  • What does the Lord teach us about how much we should give in Mark 12:41 – 43? Who gave more, the widow or the rich man?
  • According to Acts 20:35, which is more important, giving or receiving? This is a passage where Paul quotes Jesus, but the quote isn’t found in the Gospels. Of course it’s still instructive. What do you learn from this?
  • What does the Savior experience in Luke 8:1 – 3 teach about workers in the church receiving financial support? Some argue that receiving such support is wrong. What do you think?

John Wesley and Rules for Inner Transformation

cropped-2012_bobwhitesel_mid_700kbToday we wrap-up our week-long celebration of John Wesley and the leadership lessons that we can apply to our ministry today. It’s not too late to get your own copy of a brand new resource on Wesley’s Church Growth Principles from Wesley authority Dr. Bob Whitesel (see PS below for all the details.) But first, an excerpt from one of the bonuses you will receive in this resource – Dr. Whitesel’s article on “Traveling in the Hoof Prints of Wesley.”

I recently visited in John Wesley’s haunts, from the high moors of Derbyshire, to the alleys of industrial Sheffield, to the cosmopolitan bustle of City Road in London. Amid these journeys I sought to better understand Wesley’s writings (to which I was kindly provided access to the originals in various locales) and the development of his holism regarding evangelism. Though for months I had been studying the massive reams of his journals, letters, and books, I found his comprehensive view of the Good News become clearer as I trekked into his world.

Wesley lived in a world that was surprisingly not too different from the one we live in today. It was rampant with unethical new technologies that cheapened people, their self-esteem, and their moral values. Compounding the problem, the Church of England had denigrated into parish fiefdoms where pastors amassed private fortunes, catered to society’s elite, and harangued one another over private theological perspectives. Worship services had become uninspiring and lethargic.

The term methodist was used in a derisive manner to slander Wesley and his student friends at Christ Church College in Oxford. They had gained notoriety for attempting to live lives more purposeful and godly. They drafted for themselves rules to help them grow in their Christian spirituality and service:

  1. To lead a “holy and sober life”
  2. “To take communion at least one a week”
  3. “To be faithful in private devotions”
  4. “To visit the prisons regularly”
  5. “To spend three hours together every afternoon, studying the Bible and books of devotion.”

One of Wesley’s friends had suggested that the group go to Oxford’s most outcast inhabitants, those who were housed in the nearby XXX prison. This had an amazing effect upon the Holy Club. Eventually Wesley and his friends would even ride with prisoners in the carts on their way to execution, consoling and comforting them.

From his years at prestigious Christi Church College and forward, Wesley would view meeting the needs of society’s most estranged, be they believer or nonbeliever, as a fundamental element of the Good News. Though fellow Oxford students would derogatorily call them “The Holy Club,” their methods of holding each other accountable, receiving the sacraments, and helping the needy only required one more element for their movement to become whole—that was for these young men, who grew up in Christian homes, to experience an inner transformation.

John Wesley, Small Groups, and Becoming Students of the Word

cropped-2012_bobwhitesel_mid_700kbThe following post is from my good friend and John Wesley authority, Dr Bob Whitesel. I had the tremendous privilege of traveling with him on a UK tour to study the “Footsteps of John Wesley.” This immersion was so powerful that I invited Dr. Whitesel to speak for a half day on the church growth principles of John Wesley (we recorded it all – see the PS below for more on his powerful new resource). Here is an excerpt from that teaching:

An important aspect of John Wesley’s world is discipleship, and discipleship by making people students of the word, and students of themselves. By students of the word, I mean that they would be involved in a small setting of around 12 to 15 people that will have as their purpose regular meetings to learn more about the word. Not learn about doctrine, not learn about theology — learn the word.

In Wesley’s day and age, people were biblically illiterate. I’ll make the argument that today, in America, and around the world, is very similar to the time of Wesley. For Wesley, it was the Industrial Revolution. People were moving from the farmland into the cities, they were uprooting their families. They did not have family in the city. They were working, many times, 14‑16 hours a day. Children were working these 14‑16 hours. They had no time for church. They lost their parish church system. They were moving to the city, and Wesley knew they needed more. They needed more than just spiritual conversion. They needed also a physical transformation; they needed to have people helping them form new relationships.

The discipleship was getting into the world, because the people were very ignorant about what the Bible said. Most people hadn’t a clue what the Bible said or how it was comprised or the books that made it up, so much of Wesley’s time was spent acquainting people with the Bible.

Discipleship was about learning the Bible, and then also learning about yourself. This was sharing with this small group what you were struggling with.

Somebody said to me at one of my conferences, “Dr. Whitesel, that’s hard for people in America, to share their feelings or what they’re struggling with, even in a small group.” I said, “Have you ever been to England and tried to get something out of one of them?” Talk about stiff upper lip.

This is the environment that Wesley came into. His challenge was to make people students of the word and students of themselves, and ask themselves, “What are you struggling with? What are the sin problems that challenge you?” and then have a small group that helps you with those.

If Wesley can get the English people talking about their needs and their hurts and everything, even better so than Oprah does, then we can use this method today, and get people opening up and becoming students of themselves and students of the word.

Nelson

Dr. Bob Whitesel: How to Read John Wesley’s Sermons

cropped-2012_bobwhitesel_mid_700kbThe following post is from my good friend and John Wesley authority, Dr Bob Whitesel. I had the tremendous privilege of traveling with him on a UK tour to study the “Footsteps of John Wesley.” This immersion was so powerful that I invited Dr. Whitesel to speak for a half day on the church growth principles of John Wesley (we recorded it all – see the PS below for more on his powerful new resource).

Biola’s Fred Sanders has posted a helpful interview with Jason Vickers, one of the editors of the Abingdon book: The Sermons of John Wesley: A Collection for the Christian Journey. When I lead tours to England I have travelers preach some of these sermons, from the very same pulpits in Oxford and Bristol where Wesley preached them. It is a moving and powerful experience.

Sanders writes,…”Though he (John Wesley) wrote and edited voluminously in a variety of genres, it’s the sermons that made history and deserve to be heard today. Wesley even specified a few dozen sermons that he considered to be standards, which makes our selection easier.”

So I’m delighted that Abingdon has just released a volume that solves our problems: The Sermons of John Wesley: A Collection for the Christian Journey.

At about 650 pages, this collection of 60 of Wesley’s sermons is pretty likely to serve this generation as the definitive anthology for reading Wesley firsthand. It is published by a Methodist press and edited by two respected Methodist scholars. One of those two editors is the aforementioned Ken Collins, and the other is Jason Vickers, Associate Professor of Theology and Wesleyan Studies and United Theological Seminary.

Vickers is author, most recently, of Minding the Good Ground: A Theology for Church Renewal (Baylor UP, 2011) and is one of the leaders in the program known as Canonical Theism. As for his credentials to edit the sermons of Wesley, he is author of Wesley: A Guide for the Perplexed , and co-editor of the Cambridge Companion to John Wesley.

I asked Vickers a few questions about this new collection of Wesley sermons. Here are his responses…

Leadership Lessons from John Wesley

wesley4John Wesley didn’t intend to start a denomination – but he created a movement. The leadership principles he developed during this extraordinary period of church growth were so effective, they simply became known as “The Method.”

Though we just celebrated John Wesley’s 312th birthday, when we look closer at Wesley’s story, it’s clear how similar his situation was to ours – and how applicable these leadership principles are to ministry today.

In his day, there was also a great anti-Christian movement.

There was a great need for renewal and revival.

There was a need for structure and organization in order for the gospel to be shared.

Wesley knew the difficulty of ministry – the hard work required to save people. But he believed in the role of the church and its ability to transform its community and change lives – particularly through small groups and volunteers. He believed in rules to help both church leaders and members do the things they needed to do to grow and reach more people for Christ. 

Surprisingly, not much has been written on the leadership lessons of John Wesley – that is, until now.

It stunned me that though I was familar with Wesley from seminary, I didn’t realize just HOW MANY insights we could apply until I studied him with my friend and fellow church history enthusiast, Dr. Bob Whitesel - who just happens to be the foremost authority on John Wesley.

I had the tremendous privilege of traveling with him on a UK tour to study the “Footsteps of John Wesley.” This immersion into the impact of Wesley was so powerful that I invited Dr. Whitesel to speak for a half day at one of my coaching events LIVE, and unpack the inspiring “methods” that gave rise to the greatest world-wide revival since the Reformation!

And we recorded it all. Now in this brand new resource exclusive from Dr. Bob Whitesel, you’ll discover the church growth principles behind this movement that you can apply to unleash growth in your own ministry today! (See the P.S. below for all the details)

I hope you’ll join Dr. Whitesel as he recounts in exciting and humorous stories the life and leadership lessons of Wesley. Whitesel will engage you with colorful narratives of his travels across England studying original Wesley writings in the actual locations where Wesley wrote them!

Your partner in ministry,

Nelson

Father’s Day Flash Sale – 75% Off Ends Today!

I want to remind you that TODAY is your Last Chance to pick up “The Power of the Sabbath” at 75% OFF and receive over $109.00 in additional FREE Bonuses!

In a nutshell, this resource will teach you to honor God with the Sabbath – and experience decreased stress, increased productivity and a more vibrant relationship with God.

But hurry, this Father’s Day Flash Sale ends today – below is the initial post with all the details in case you missed it:

It was four years after I had started The Journey Church. I was having my regular phone calls with one of my mentors in Atlanta.

I was complaining. Frustrated. Tired. My waistline was expanding and so was my to-do list.

(And although I didn’t have the guts to tell him, my marriage wasn’t in a great place either).

He called me a sinner! I was looking for something a bit more compassionate.

He went on to explain that he wasn’t just talking about me being an “ordinary sinner” (as if there is such) but a major one! He told me I needed to repent. Said I was violating the 10 Commandments.

I pushed back: “All the commandments I have kept since my youth.” (Sounded biblical, right?)

“You aren’t keeping the 4th Commandment. You are violating the Sabbath. Every problem you are having right now is because of this. I bet your marriage isn’t doing that great either!”

I use these words cautiously but THAT WAS THE DAY MY LIFE CHANGED. I started what has now been a ten-year journey in learning to keep the Sabbath. Since that conversation with my caring mentor, everything has changed for me.

BTW, here’s the 4th Commandment:

“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God . . .”

In learning to honor this commandment, by the grace of God, here’s some of the results I have experienced:

  • My to-do list still large and growing (I lead a large and growing ministry) BUT its not overwhelming me – I have a ‘handle’ on what God is calling me to do.
  • I’ve learned to prioritize and focus on the things that matter most
  • I can’t remember the last time I missed a day off or had to cancel ‘family time’ because I just ‘couldn’t get away.’
  • My waistline has shrunk (yep – seems there’s a correlation between high stress, low rest and big pants!).
  • My cholesterol and blood pressure are normal (even ‘low normal’)
  • I’ve accomplished more over the last seven years than any other seven years in my life (Book #10 comes out this fall, Journey Church is growing with record numbers, etc.)

…And on and on I could go.

I should’ve listed this first, but my relationship with God is at a better place than it’s ever been (I’m still an ‘ordinary sinner’ saved by grace but there’s a weekly vitality that I missed my first 13 years in ministry).

Quite frankly, I HAVE LEARNED THE POWER OF THE SABBATH!
