Why Pastors Need to Preach on Marriage

Bob FranquizLeadership, Teaching

Marriage is one of my favorite topics to preach on. More that 50% of my congregation is married and the balance of the church wants to tie the knot. That means, whenever we announce a series of teachings on marriage, everyone is excited. That doesn’t mean there aren’t a few challenges associated with teaching on marriage. Some singles get frustrated about talks on marriage. It’s somewhat difficult to teach in a new and fresh way. However, the benefits outweigh the challenges. So I thought I’d share 5 reasons for you to keep a marriage series on the preaching calendar every ... Read More

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 Brand New Outreach Ninja!

Bob FranquizTeaching

We started Outreach Ninja 15 months ago and we’ve learned a lot from Pastors like you about how to help you reach your community. This led us to make significant changes to Outreach Ninja. First, we changed the coaching format to a 12-month coaching community. This way you aren’t signing up for something that’s endless. Also, we changed the coaching in such a way so everyone starts in the same place and each coaching session builds on the previous month. This is going to help you greatly as you implement what’s being taught. Second, we changed our done-for-you resources and ... Read More
