What you can learn from Jerry Seinfeld

My good friend (and our Executive Pastor at CBC), Chris Emmitt, shared with me this video of Jerry Seinfeld.  If you are a communicator of any kind there is so much that you can learn from Jerry Seinfeld who is one of the greatest communicators of our time.  I encourage you to take 15 minutes and watch this video and then comment below what you learned from Jerry Seinfeld.

Hardy on Pastors and Politics

Over the past 5 years I have been incredibly privileged to meet weekly with one of the greatest ministry leaders of our time, Hardy Clemons.  Hardy has 50+ years of successful ministry experience and has invested in my ministry in more ways than I can describe.  In this session we discuss Pastors and Politics:

What are your thoughts on Pastors and Politics?  Do you agree or disagree with Hardy?

If you have any questions that you would like for me to ask Hardy, feel free to comment and I will ask and share in future weeks.

Resource Suggestion:


I have to admit, I'm a junkie.  I'm costantly blown away be the resources they put out there for FREE!  I've used their Youth Ministry videos, small group materials, and daily use the YouVersion iPhone App.  I just heard about a new set of resources they are putting out on  This is simply a website with downloadable video messages from some of the best communicators of the gospel from around the world!  Can you imagine needing to be out one Sunday or having lost your voice and your fill-in for the day is Andy Stanley, Craig Groeschel, or Mark Driscoll?  Pretty good back up plan... and it's FREE!  Actually, I wouldn't consider this a back up plan, but I would filter through these messages and find some opportunities for your congregation to experience the teachings of some of these great pastors on a regular basis.  I look forward to seeing what pastors/speakers are added to this list in the future and how this FREE resource like so many others that has put out will impact our world in powerful ways with the message of Jesus Christ!
