The NINES - Theology edition

On 09.09.09 at 9:09am Central Time a huge online conference kicked off. There were over 70 9 minutes presentations brought together in a live webcast. It was pretty cool. I'll probably post some video here when they have it up for streaming.

The task was for leaders all over the globe to take nine minutes and share what they thought leaders in churches need to hear. It was interesting to me that certain themes kept popping up, even though there was no script and no collaboration. Maybe God is trying to say something . . .

One theme that kept occurring was that of mentoring/discipling. Leaders consider it to be of vital importance to be mentored and to mentor others. There is no other way to grow and to promote growth.

I'm going to say that this is just as true of preaching as it is of any other leadership topic. We need to learn from other preachers and we need to be teaching what we know. That is the way that God designed us.

Do you regularly listen to other people preach? Do you mentor someone in preaching?
