#PAOCGENCONF2010 – Wayne Cordeiro (Mini-Plenary)

This entry is part 5 of 7 in the series PAOC General Conference 2010

I attended the breakout session with my lead pastor (Marshall Eizenga) to hear Wayne Cordeiro again.  Wayne expanded further on what he had talked about the previous evening in the general session.  Really. Good. Stuff.   Here are the notes I took:

Whose cage are you tapping and who is pacing you right now?

  • you will never have wholeness in a church with broken relationships.
  • if staff or volunteers come into your office and they don’t make your heart leap ask why!
  • make sure relationships are good and healthy.
  • if you don’t have healthy relationships no program will work because everyone will sabotage it.
  • if you are a repenting man you will be a healthy man
  • healthy churches still have problems but they deal with them quickly.
  • Luke 1 when you have healthy relationships the Holy Spirit can move. And He doesn’t need you!
  • healing requires health – if you tolerate brokenness forget about the healing!
  • God’s word says without knowledge my people perish.
  • We always want to make sure what we do is biblical

#PAOCGENCONF2010 – Wayne Cordeiro

This entry is part 3 of 7 in the series PAOC General Conference 2010
Dr. Wayne Cordeiro is senior pastor of New Hope Christian Fellowship in Honolulu, Hawaii.  I was really looking forward to hearing his message – and I was not disappointed!   Remember,  for the first few posts in this series I’m just posting the raw notes – in the last post of this series I will summarize my thoughts on everything I heard/experienced at the General Conference this year. Here are the notes I took from that night.

  • “There is something about vibrant Christians when they are brand new.”
  • 1500 ministers are leaving ministry every month.  What is being to replace those who leave?
  • the whole story of the Old Testament is passing the baton of faith contextually from one generation to the next.
  • remember God has chosen people and placed them in the times where they live.
  • races (relay) are won or lost in the passing of the baton.
  • when you are passing the baton – for a season you need to run together.
  • It just takes a moment to pass the baton but it takes 5 to 7 years to pass the heart of that baton
