The Way Home – Episode 25 featuring J.D. Greear

July 9, 2015

Can a church really grow if they give away their members? This seems to fly in the face of church growth methodology. And yet, this is exactly what my friend J.D. Greear is saying churches should do. They should give away their people to mission. J.D. Greear is the lead pastor of The Summit Church, in Raleigh-Durham, N.C. He’s a well-known author and speaker. I especially appreciated his recent book, Jesus Continued on the work of the Holy Spirit. Today I’m talking with him about his latest work, Gaining by Losing. We also discuss racial reconciliation and the church and . . . whether Lebron is really better than Michael.
