The “I’m not an Evangelist” Excuse

Bob FranquizLeadership, Teaching

I am amazed God has allowed Calvary Fellowship to be such an evangelistic church. Seriously. We see unchurched people coming to know Jesus every single week. The reason I’m so amazed is because I’m not an evangelist. I’m a Bible teacher. That’s my sweet spot. Teaching through books of the Bible and feeding God’s people is where I'm most comfortable. While teaching is my primary gifting, my passion is to see lost people found. Nothing gives me greater joy than to see a lost person give their life to Jesus and start growing in their faith. I know a lot ... Read More

The Challenge of the Introvert Pastor

Bob FranquizChurch, Leadership

I used to think there was something wrong with me. I loved studying. I loved preaching. I loved people. But after a Sunday of services and talking to people, I just wanted to go home and be alone. I would talk to some of my pastor friends and they thought it was a bit odd. I started to think maybe I didn’t care about people. Maybe I was one of those guys who loves teaching crowds, but doesn’t love individuals. It was around that time I took a Myers-Briggs personality profile. When the results came back, I learned what I ... Read More
