Episode 1 – Dave Ferguson
Thank you for listening to Taking Flight, a Podcast showcasing the raw stories of how church plants have gone from fumbles and failures to innovation and impact.
The guest on episode one is Dave Ferguson, the founding and Lead Pastor of Community Christian Church. Dave is very active within the church planting space as the President of Exponential as well as the Lead Visionary of the NewThing Network.
My Biggest Takeaway
In the podcast Dave talked about how before they launched a large gathering, they launched small groups. Every person on his lead team led a small group and each had an apprentice leader. This created the ethos from the very beginning of being a church that reproduces as well as a church that does life together. Because of this, from day one, they instilled within their DNA a reproducing mechanism.
