“We thought we had the answers, it was the questions we had wrong.”  Bono, Musician and Philanthropist 

Here is an excerpt from Bob's book which you can download HERE

FACT OR OPINION?

Do your staff/peers/leaders ever make statements that you suspect may not actually be true? World War II General George S. Patton was known for his quip:

“How do you know that?”

This is a profoundly simple and effective method for sorting out opinion from fact.

HAVE YOU SEEN CHARIOTS OF FIRE?

Chariots of Fire was the winner of the 1981 Oscar for Best Picture. In the movie, Erik Liddell says, “I believe that God made me for a purpose, but he also made me fast and when I run I feel his pleasure.” With this as context here is one of my most favorite questions:

“What are you doing when you feel God’s pleasure?”

INCREASE YOUR EFFECTIVENESS

What are five simple questions you can ask your staff regarding how you could become a more effective leader? Simply ask:

“What do I need to start doing?”
“What do I need to stop doing?”
“What do I need to do more of?”
“What do I need to do less of?”
“What do I need to continue to do?”

WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM JESUS ABOUT ASKING QUESTIONS?

Jesus, the master communicator, went about sharing stories and asking questions. The four Gospels record 173 questions that Jesus asked. You can read all 173 questions by clicking “HERE”  

Might we do well to follow his example? Why do you suppose Jesus asked so many questions? I ask a lot of questions because I don’t know the answers, but that certainly was not true for Jesus! Might it be that he understood that asking was a much better way to engage your audience than telling?

Do you remember how the story of the Good Samaritan ends? Jesus could have said: “So therefore the Samaritan was his neighbor.” But instead he asked, “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”

Two of my favorite questions that Jesus asked are found in Mark, chapter 8.  Jesus and his disciples went on to the villages around Caesarea Philippi. On the way he asked them,

“Who do people say I am?”

They replied, “Some say John the Baptist;
others say Elijah; and still others, one of the prophets.”

“But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”

Peter answered, “You are the Messiah.”

I have the same two questions for you:

“Who do people today say that Jesus is?”

“But what about you? Who do you say Jesus is?”

If you are not sure or would like to know more about who Jesus is, I would be delighted to send you one of my favorite books, “More Than A Carpenter” by Josh McDowell, my former colleague of 24 years. Please email me at bob.tiede@cru.org with your mailing address and your book will soon be on its way – with my compliments (offer available U.S. only).

CLOSURE IS OVERRATED

In their book, “Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go,”  my friends, Beverly Kaye and Julie Winkle Giulioni, suggest that closure is overrated. Don’t feel the pressure to wrap up every conversation with a bow. Try this instead:

End your next meeting or conversation with a question.

Explain that there’s no time for a discussion, but that you have one more question that you want to close with. Then, the next time you are with that person, ask if they remember the question. You’ll be surprised that they not only remember the question, but they’ll also have quite a few answers for you.

CONVERSATIONAL FUNDRAISING

If you are in involved in fundraising, would you like meetings with potential donors to be more conversational and less presentational?
Here are six questions from my friend Kent Stroman, author of “Asking about Asking: Mastering the Art of Conversational Fundraising:”

“How did you learn to give?”
“What would you like your gifts to accomplish?”
“How do you decide which projects to support with your own time and money?”
“What are your top three charitable interests this year?”
“What gift did you make that has brought you the most joy?”
“Could you ever see yourself becominginvolved with our mission?”

Let God use your mess for your benefit!

Click Here for the resoruces from our interview with Steven

In this episode, we interview Pastor Steven Furtick.  He used to think the answer to his failures was to fix them, that the solution to his weaknesses was to replace them with strengths. He believed that his character and competency qualified or disqualified him. That is until an online critic caught his attention and made him start asking questions.

In (Un)Qualified: How God Uses Broken People to Do Big Things, Furtick teaches about the discoveries he’s made while wrestling with questions about self-acceptance and self-improvement. He shares the answers he’s found in scripture that have helped him reconcile who he is compared to who he is meant to be.

[su_quote cite="Steven Furtick, lead pastor and founder of Elevation Church in Charlotte, N.C."](Un)Qualified is about finding and embracing who you are in light of who God is. It’s a book about coming to terms with the good, the bad, and the unmentionable in your life and learning how to let God use your mess for your benefit. [/su_quote]

Drawing from the Bible, Furtick uses the story of Jacob to address issues of identity, fear, weakness, comparison, and change. In his witty, high-energy and insightful style, Furtick equips the reader to understand what it truly means for a follower of Christ to be qualified.

“As I’ve wrestled with my own questions, I’ve found myself changing,” says Furtick. “I’ve learned some things about weakness that I never understood before. I’ve come to see God and myself differently, and it’s changing the way I parent, the way I pastor, and the way I approach God.”

(Un)Qualified is an ideal resource for those struggling with the gap between their present reality and their hope for the future. It offers encouragement and inspiration to readers to see themselves as God sees them. After all, as Furtick teaches, “God can’t bless who you pretend to be.”

Bio

 

Pastor Steven Furtick is the founder and lead pastor of Elevation Church in Charlotte, N.C., named by Outreach magazine as one of the fastest growing churches in the nation with 20,000 weekly attendees across multiple locations.

Furtick grew up in Moncks Corner, S.C., where, at age 16, he felt God’s call to start an innovative church in a metropolitan city. This vision became a reality in 2006 when Furtick, along with his wife, Holly, and seven other families, moved to Charlotte and launched Elevation Church. In 10 years, the church has given away over $20 million to local outreach organizations, opened 13 locations, released eight worship albums, launched a daily television program, and continues to reach thousands of people with the hope-filled message of the Gospel.

In his fourth book, (Un)Qualified: How God Uses Broken People To Do Big Things (March 1, 2016, Multnomah Books), Furtick confronts the question of what it means to be deemed “qualified”—whether in ministry, vocation, or life. He untangles the difference of being qualified by God’s definition versus the world’s definition.

“I have to admit, this hasn’t been an easy book to write. It’s not that the topic is particularly controversial. It’s been hard to write because it’s messy,” says Furtick.

“If you’ve ever been frustrated by your failures or exasperated by your weaknesses, this book is for you,” he continues. “But let me warn you, I’m not going to tell you 15 ways to fix yourself in 15 minutes a day. I want to do something that is, I hope, a lot more valuable. I want to be real.”

Furtick is also the author of the New York Times best-sellers Crash the Chatterbox  (Multnomah Books, 2014) and Greater (Multnomah Books, 2012). His debut book Sun Stand Still (Multnomah Books, 2010) calls Christians to activate their faith and be inspired to ask God for the impossible. In addition, he created the DVD and study guide Seven Mile Miracle (Feb. 2013) about the last words of Christ.

Furtick has had the privilege to speak to global audiences at such conferences and churches around the world as the Catalyst Conference, Hillsong Conference and the Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit.

Furtick received a B.A. in communications from North Greenville University and a Master of Divinity from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He and his wife, Holly, have two sons and a daughter.
