Whiteboard Sessions 2010 : Jon Tyson

Here are the notes from Jon Tyson's session.
  • Jesus - "apart from me you can do nothing!"
  • Church of Ephesus in the book of Revelation.
  • They did a lot of things well but had forsaken their first love.
  • As a leader, how do you cause people to love God more?
  • A few myths about how to do it:
  • Have a "super pastor" and people will love God.
  • The miraculous will cause people to love God.
  • If we get more missional people will love God.
  • If cultural impact takes place people will love God.
  • If we have a better discipleship strategy, people will love God.
  • If we have the right doctrine people will love God.
  • What/Where did the Church of Ephesus fall from?
  • A lukewarm church does not declare the glory of God.
  • The Church of Ephesus did all the "myths" yet forsake their first love.
  • As leaders our responsibility is to tell and show people to Remember, Repent and Return.
  • It is about the way God sees us not how we see Him!
  • Our responsibility is Ephesians 3:14-19
  • To make sure that they are rooted and grounded in Love.
  • When that is not primary, you create a culture of work and failure.
  • Leaders need to receive love and receive from God.
  • When the Father blessed Jesus, He did it before Jesus started His earthly ministry.
  • We are so dependent on strategies because we are bankrupt of the power of God.
