NNCC Mark Batterson - Pre-Launch Breakout

Five keys to creativity:
Creativity is not optional

#1 Keep Learning
  • read like crazy
  • kids have 125 interesting questions a day. Adults have 6.
  • pt 5% of budget into development and have budget for personal growth.
#2 Exegete Culture
  • if you want to cultivate creativity you need to be a student of culture
  • contextual intelligence – the difference between success and failure
  • all tribes described as warriors except for Issachar who was called leaders.
  • relevance is incarnation
  • Redeem technology-
    • podcasting
    • Coffee houses are modern day wells
#3 Brand Sermons
#4 Disrupt Routines
  • change of pace + change of place = change of perspective.
  • 40 day fast made a difference
  • law of confusion –
    • good leaders confuse people
  • Best practices
    • a lot of off sight meetings
    • retreats
  • keep what is sacred from becoming routine
#5 Keep Experimenting
  • everything is an experiment

Closing
There are ways of doing church that no one has thought about yet.
