LK10 Apprenticeship: Week Eight (4)

Synergy, in general, may be defined as two or more agents working together to produce a result not obtainable by any of the agents independently. In the first three parts of this interview with Jim Mellon and Wade Adams, we identified the following “agents” or components that create the synergy of the LK10 Apprenticeship. 1. […]

LK10 Apprenticeship: Week Eight (3)

Here’s the best definition of the LK10 Apprenticeship: a small “community of practice” (a cohort of 12 people) that creates a powerful learning environment. Our learning is focused on three foundational rhythms or practices… 1. Individually learning to pay attention to both our own hearts and God’s heart. 2. Learning to pay attention in these […]

LK10 Apprenticeship: Week Eight (2)

The LK10 Apprenticeship can best be described as a small “community of practice” that creates a powerful learning environment. Several components come together to create this community. In the video below, Jim Mellon and Wade Adams reflect on the third component: being a “church of two” (CO2) on a daily basis. John

LK10 Apprenticeship: Week Eight (1)

We are continuing to pay close attention to what God is doing through the LK10 Apprenticeship. Eight weeks have been completed with four weeks to go. This last week I was in Killeen, TX for a LK10 Leadership Training Conference. I had the opportunity to interview two of the twelve people who have been in […]

Apprenticeship Week One

I’ll be reporting from time to time on how the Apprenticeship is going. In the video below, Tim Pynes tell about the first week with his cohort. Each week there are learning assignments. The first week’s assignments focused on learning about and then implementing the “church of two” (CO2). Each individual reports in their Discussion […]

Like the Pynes Cohort, my group will function as a virtual community although many of the people know each other. We also have an international element with Noah Cremisino in New Zealand. […]

10:2b Story (Part Three)

Great comment from Carolyn Spence (Clovis, NM) in response to Mike Deaton‘s interview in yesterday’s post: OK, agreed! We need the opportunity to see it practised. My mother (89 years young) cried to experience the very tiny taste of our gathering in Clovis with MRT members from Albuquerque and Colorado saying, “now I see what […]

CO2 – The Hyatt Family (4)

In response to the story about the Hyatt family doing CO2, Jared Looney, a church planter in NYC, posted this comment yesterday… We recently did S.A.S.H.E.T. as a family. That is, my wife, my five year old daughter, and me. My wife and I had practiced this tool in various settings before, but doing it […]

CO2 – The Hyatt Family (3)

There’s lots of talk these days about “the missional church”. The thinking is that the church needs to stop being so inwardly focused and become concerned about the needs of the world. We are told that this is accomplished by exhorting believers to change their focus and become more concerned about the lost and needy. […]

CO2 – The Hyatt Family (2)

In today’s short video below (3 minutes), Sean explains two things that might seem impossible to those of us who have spent our entire lives in traditional church. First, he explains how he has trained his two boys (aged 7 and 10) to facilitate the family’s daily CO2 (CO5!) time. (Observation: children and teens often […]
