Steve Sjogren Interviewed by Rice Broocks on TBN

Steve Sjogren recently did a great interview with Rice Broocks about Servant Evangelism on the TBN network. You might find this helpful to forward to others as a way of explaining the concept of SE in a nutshell. (Interesting note: It was taped in Nashville at what was previously the estate of country music legend Conway Twitty on his sound stage, known as “TwittyLand!” – not as over the top as the name sounds but a cool bit of Nashville lore. If you are ever in Nashville-Hendersonville on a Tuesday night, you might want to check out the taping of one of these shows.)

Interview with Mike Slaughter by Steve Sjogren

***Thanks to Tim in Berea, OH who sent over an ultra-optimized video file that’s only 60MB!***

Mike Slaughter shares his heart as it relates to over 30 years of solid ministry at Ginghamsburg Church at Tipp City (Dayton), Ohio. Slaughter reflects upon how his initial church growth strategy misfired. He had to get a vision from on high.

His pathway has been marked by moderate but consistent growth ever since. That same growth has been repeated year after year as he has sought to disciple small numbers of people in his span of care – never more than a dozen people at a time though. Hear how that simple approach to outward care continues to transform the lives of his leaders and his city today.

He shares thoughts on the makings of the church that is destined for outwardness that leads to health. It is an exciting perspective that will lift your heart and mind.

Here’s the MP3 of the interview you can listen to or download. It is 84MB (we’ll get this smaller soon).

Change The World – rediscovering the ministry and message of Jesus.
Release date of January, 2010 (Abingdon Press).
