Writing New Rules: Church Growth with Dave Gibbons

On this episode of the New Rules Podcast, Adrian and Billy talk with Dave Gibbons, Pastor of NewSong Church in Santa Ana, California. Dave Gibbons was the man that made it all come together for Adrian at a conference 10 years ago. After talking with Dave, Adrian realizes that he’s not the only one crazy enough to chase after what God has called him to do, even if it means being the first to do so. This and more on this week’s episode of the New Rules Podcast.

"But it's seeming, a majority of a lot of stuff we see in church is about let's get these people so then they can ultimately serve within the context of what we're building and not the church serving what God has building inside the people." -@adriancrawford #NewRulesPodcast TWEET THIS

Vision Beyond Your Lifetime

Having a vision for your life can pull you out of the day-in and day-out routine of our week. But where can we find vision? Should everyone have this, or is it just left for the Elon Musks and Steve Jobs of the world? On this episode, Adrian helps us to unpack how we can discover this, his thoughts on social media keyboard heroes, recent travels in D.C., and more.

NRW: Episode 054 | Security Check

If you've ever flown on an airplane before, you've had to go through TSA. They check your ID, your luggage, and your body to make sure you are who you say you are and you're not harmful to yourself and/or others. Many of us are unable to pass through the TSA of life because we don't have the right ID or we're carrying harmful material. But in order to get to the destination we desire to go, we must do so.

The Church's Problem with Culture

Trying to influence culture can be difficult. We'd rather live in the black and white. As Christians, this can look one of two ways. We either exclude ourselves from everything or become so mixed in the culture that it's difficult to tell us apart. But what if there was a third way? A way that's hard to manage, but worth it if we want to write new rules? Check out this episode of the New Rules Podcast to discover more.
