Church Planter Advice - Pastor Phil Campbell

Today I had the privilege of sitting and learning from Phil Campbell Aussie Planter and Minister at Mitchelton Presbyterian Church.

Here are his top three pieces of advice :
1. Work really, really hard at clear bible teaching. This is the foundation. As a planter you will be tempted to take shortcuts in this area, my advice is to do the opposite. Spend up to three days a week focusing on your teaching and do it really well.
2. Do everything else as well as you can. Doing this affirms your commitment to number one.
3. Love people, but be firm and appologise freely.

Thanks Phil.

Hi Will,

Nice to see things moving ahead in Brisbane.

Thanks for the shout out Nathan. Your Dad is a 'guru' who I have learnt heaps from over the years. It's amazing how much we can learn over even blogs etc if we have a mind to do so.
Cheers.
