Catalyst has been a blessing to my development as a leader and I’m deeply grateful for the leadership that Brad Lomenick has brought to it. When I heard that Brad had written a book, The Catalyst Leader: 8 Essentials for Becoming a Change Maker, I quickly added it to my “must read” list. Regretfully, it’s taken over a year for me to get to it, but once I opened it up, I gobbled it up in matter of days. I even live tweeted each chapter – you can check it out by going to my twitter account – @danielsangi.

Here is one of my favourite quotes from his book, The Catalyst Leader: 8 Essentials for Becoming a Change Maker:

Act, lead, dream, create, and deliver based on the job or position you want next, not the job or position you have now. Step into that role before you ever have it. Demand perfection from yourself before anyone ever demands it of you.

In the third session of my Midsize Groups Course on Ministry Grid, I explore how midsize, missional communities represent the kingdom of God to the world through integration, multiplication, discipleship, and mission.

Mother Teresa doesn’t need an explanation – she is one of the greatest influencers of this past century.

Since I love leadership and the power of teams, this quote popped out to me:

You can do what I cannot do. I can do what you cannot do. Together we can do great things.

Let’s do great things by living in the areas of our strength and by working with one another!

In the second session of my Midsize Groups Course on Ministry Grid, I encourage churches to create a sense of belonging through midsize groups – this is what will make a larger church feel smaller. I also explore how different social environments draw on the strengths of both small groups and midsize gatherings.

The first session in my Midsize Groups Course on Ministry Grid addresses how to engage people disillusioned with small groups. In this session, I examine how small groups are the means to community, but not the end. I then discuss how to overcome the difficult barriers that may arise in small groups developing community. Lastly, I introduce how you can establish midsize communities in your church.
