WHAT LUTHERANS BELIEVE The Christian church is made up of those who have been baptized and thus have received Christ as the Son of God and Savior of the world. Sometimes it is referred to as "the Body of Christ." Lutherans believe that they are a part of a community of faith that began with the gift of the Holy Spirit, God's presence with his people, on the day of Pentecost. The church, regardless of the external form it takes, is the fellowship of those who have been restored to God by Chri ...

If sitting really is the new smoking, then what is the cost of sitting? Jeff shares some data on what the cost is from sitting all day in a sedentary lifestyle. Too many pastors live sedentary lives. That's bad (as me and my kids say). Jeff shares the info, then some suggestions on how to make things better for YOU. Support the show…
 
Did you know that weekly, rote, processes and programs do not bond believers? They lull them into ruts, but they do not deepen relationships. Unique, shared experiences bond believers together. That's the perspective Jeff talks about today! Enjoy. Support the showBy Jeff Keady - Coaching For Pastors
 
How do you create rules for technology in your home? What? You don't?! You just let your kids do whatever they want with their cellphones, laptops, and tablets? You're kidding right? Of course you are... On Episode 65 Jeff talks about how to create a "Rule of Technology" in your home. Tech is one of the most dangerous realities in most of our homes…
 
Healthy pastors are healthy because they take action when it is needed - as soon as it is needed. They are humble and are not afraid to admit a fault or sin. They know they can't be a lone ranger and need others to help them in both their life and their ministry. Pastors who take the necessary action at the right time to get help, are often the hea…
 
Many pastors view porn. It is a tragic reality. It is a weapon Satan uses to hobble the people of God and the servants of God. Do you view porn? I'm not saying you're addicted or anything - I'm just asking if you view it? Regularly? Real regularly? Frequently or infrequently? Too much? Just enough? Maybe a little? Etc. Etc. You see my point. Porn r…

It's like a broken record when episode after episode I and our guests tell pastors that they need to find a safe person that they can talk with, confess to, and grow with. But it's true! We do not grow in isolation. Have you ever seen a great garden with just ONE plant?! Of course not! Ridiculous! Jeff quotes The Power of Mentoring by Martin Sander…
 
There's something about YOU that you wish you could share with someone. It's a secret. The longer it remains hidden the bigger it grows in your mind, your heart, and the more guilt you feel. Unless, of course, you have a safe place to confess, to share your junk, and to receive some healing. Do you have a safe place Pastor? Do you have that friend …

What is your mission as a church, and, are you moving in the direction of your mission? Churches left to themselves will drift toward that inevitable inward focus. They will ask "what is good for us, for OUR church?" They will forget about the lost in their community and around the world. So what is your church's mission Pastor? And are you leading…
 
On Wednesdays Jeff coaches pastors on the topic of family. Today he redirects us toward thinking about our kids.

Even thou…

It seems like everyone is working on their mindset these days. There are podcasts and online courses devoted to a winning mindset, TED talks on mindset, Life Coaches that coach specifically on mindset, and even webinars and live conferences on mindset. BUT, how well do we nurture and steward our daily brain nutrition? What do we read, listen to, or…
 
You remember the song lyrics, "Don't stop... believin'..."? Well, today the message is "Don't stop dreamin'!" When we've lost the will to dream, we've lost quite a bit of our energy for life and ministry. Remember when you actually believed you could accomplish something great for God? Was it a grand fairy tale? Is it over? Have you stopped dreamin…
 
It may be or may not be true - but is your family spending too much time at home on screens? Are you getting drawn right in to the giant sucking vortex of technology in your home?

Friday is health and fitness day on the Coaching For Pastors Podcast - and today I am talking about a very fundamental principle of health - movement.

We are now in the political "eye of the storm", and while we are a…
 
With the zany pace of life these days, my wife and I have found it super helpful to sit down weekly for the express purpose of talking - communicating - actually discussing a number of areas of our lives, marriage, family, and ministry - so that we are not blindsided by events, appointments, project deadlines, and generally, people! In this episode…
 
At any given point in our lives and ministries there can be areas where we are just stuck - but sometimes - we face times when it seems like we are stuck in a number of areas. This can cause us some personal and/or leadership paralysis! And, as my daughter says, "that's yucky, right?!" Yes, it's yucky. In today's episode I give you a clear, step by…

After telling you in a past episode about the positive things Jeff did as a parent, in episode 40 he is unrelentingly honest about his parental faults and failures. Being a parent, and a pastor, is not easy. We face unique pressures in our calling, and in the public eye. But Jeff wanted to be sure he did not come across as the exemplar of success. …
 
Are you honest about who you are? Are you fully aware and open about your strengths and weaknesses? If you haven't told your church about them, don't worry, they already know! But it's only when you're honest and open about your wiring and how God made you that you can be an effective leader others will want to follow. Jeff shares some of the weakn…
 
Why do we allow sin to have such control over us. Jesus has defeated it. It walks through our life as a dead zombie, neutralized and impotent, it cannot defeat us. Jesus has already won and handed to us victory over sin. While we still suffer, experience temptation, and at times yield to it, we need not let it claim victory in our lives! We must cl…

Jeff coaches you on how to lead by asking questions, and shares some helpful resources to access to learn more on this topic.

Something as fundamental as sleep should not need to be mentioned, but since so many pastors cheat sleep, Jeff is actually going to mention it!
