Sometime around 1999 Heritage Christian asked dad to speak on "Keeping the Spirit . . . During a Long Tenure" at their annual evangelism workshop. I am certain they wanted him to talk about how to stay at a church a long time and keep your energy. He had been at Woodlawn/Roebuck Parkway roughly 35 years at the time. But true to form dad went off-page and talked about teaching and reaching lost people. The material on the cycle of a church is excellent but the whole thing is solid gold and helpful. I think you'll be encouraged and challenged if you take the time to listen.
