Having the Mind of Christ
EPISODE 371 |Mike Erre/Ben Sternke and Matt Tebbe | 10/03/2022

Having the Mind of Christ. Today, Mike and Tim sit down with Pastors, podcasters and leadership trainers Ben Sternke and Matt Tebbe, to discuss their new book “Having the Mind of Christ: Eight Axioms to Cultivate a Robust Faith.” The group talks about their Gravity Leadership program, both the podcast and their leadership training, as well as the church they founded, The Table, in Indiana. What lead them to plant the church? What did they see in a previous church experience and how did they change those habits? What does it look like to ‘have the mind of Christ?’

The book, through 8 ‘axioms’ that offer a new set of lenses to see through, looks at common pitfalls within our well practiced discipleship efforts, with a focus on “practices rather than doing the deeper work of learning a new paradigm.” Sternke and Tebbe advocate for a new way of seeing ourselves, the World and God through each of these practices.  

Mike and Tim also spend time discussing an email sent in from a Pastor and listener of the pod who is struggling with wether or not to leave the pastorate. Where is the line between cruciformity and martyrdom? When is it time to leave? What is irreparable and what is worth fighting for? How can Pastors lead  when congregates offer only ultimatums?
