Show Notes: Seven Questions With “The Secret International Pastor of Mystery” (Part 2)

Summary: In this episode, I continue my interview with my good friend, who is currently serving in a country that is not too excited about him sharing the Gospel there. He has been in ministry for many years, is a church planter, and is doing this interview anonymously.

Some Highlights and Links From Today’s Show:

Currently In His “Ministry Backpack:”

How He Keeps His Family Relationships Strong:

(Currently, all of his kids are out of the nest, and are off to college.)

Now:

When His Kids Were Younger:

  • He involved himself in things that his kids were interested in, even when he wasn’t that interested those things himself.
  • When we do what God calls us to do, He provides for our kids. It’s almost like God cares about them more than we do… 😉

How He Structures His Work Week:

  • He has another business, but his main focus is starting churches. He spends a lot of time in coffee shops, having conversations.
  • His goal is to share a full Gospel presentation 5 times a week.
  • “The churches that are actually sharing their faith – it’s something that the Spirit of God does in you, that just energizes your church.”
  • “Imagine if your whole church was sharing their faith five times a week. And they come back together, and they want to grumble? I don’t think it’s going to happen.”
  • “If I share my faith 5 times a week, someone is going to come to faith in Christ.”

On Discipleship:

“I just want to draw us back to the idea of discipleship being ‘life on life.'”

“I wish I would have had somebody who had walked with me early on, and had not just given me all the answers, but asked me more questions.”

“Invest in a few guys until they can invest in a few more guys, then find some more guys and do it again.”
