Recently I have had a number of pastors reach out to me asking questions about church discipline.  In this episode I share a few of my thoughts on the subject as well as a word of caution based on a painful experience of my own that came out of a church discipline situation.



  • It's biblical, even though we don't see many churches do it today.
  • The goal is restoration…not punishment.
  • Everything must be done in love.
  • Deal with the problem at the smallest level.
    • “Private repentance for private sin; public repentance for public sin.”
  • Membership question:  Who are we responsible for?
  • Social media considerations.  Be careful.
  • There is a purpose and a point in church discipline!
    • People can experience love, accountability, correction, restoration, and forgiveness through Christ’s family.

5 Reasons to Consider Video Venue for Your Rural Church:

  1. It WORKS!
  2. It allows your church to hear from an endless supply of gifted communicators.
    1. It provides an avenue for you to get a consistent break from preaching.
    2. It opens the door for many different creative ways of communicating God’s Word.

    Examples:

    • Christmas series we filmed in the Black Hills
    • Redemption series
    1. It opens the door for many new strategies for planting new churches, campuses, or micro-sites.
