Using Outlines to Communicate Well - Brian Bell
JUN 4, 2024
Using Outlines to Communicate Well - Brian Bell

Brian Bell joins us on today's podcast as a distinguished guest, bringing with him a wealth of experience and passion. As the senior pastor of Calvary Murrieta, Brian wears many hats, serving as the main teaching pastor, Chairman of the Church Board and School Board, and the shepherd of the Calvary Murrieta community.

He speaks about the importance of developing outlines and their usefulness in clear communication as we preach. 

Brian's journey in spreading the message of Jesus has taken him across more than thirty countries, focusing particularly on two unreached people groups. Alongside his wife Kelly, Brian has dedicated the past decade to combating human trafficking, advocating for justice for women and children both locally and globally.

Beyond his ministry, Brian's personal life is equally inspiring. He and Kelly, his high school sweetheart, have shared forty years of marriage, blessed with two adult children and five grandchildren. Nothing brings him greater joy than spending time with his grandchildren, while surfing and hiking invigorate him physically.

However, it's his dedication to engaging with and supporting unreached communities that truly fuels his soul. Join us as Brian shares his insights, experiences, and the transformative power of faith in today's episode.

Not a Crowd to Be Feared, Nor an Audience to Be Entertained, but a Family to Be Loved - Trevor O'Keefe
MAY 28, 2024
Not a Crowd to Be Feared, Nor an Audience to Be Entertained, but a Family to Be Loved - Trevor O'Keefe

Trevor O’Keefe and Mike Neglia speak about Cillian Murphy’s recent Academy Award and other momentous moments in Irish history. Trevor also shares the wildest story about a debut sermon ever on the history of the podcast! (He nearly killed someone)

Trevor was a youth ministry for more than 17 years in Maranatha Chapel before transitioning in to the Lead Pastor role at Olive Branch Christian Fellowship in Poway, California. 

In this stirring conversation they speak about boundaries in ministry, depression, anxiety, and the reality that a church gathering is not a crowd to be feared or an audience to be entertained but a family to love. 

They have an extended conversation on the difference between vulnerability and honesty in the pulpit and oversharing and “bleeding all over your people.”

Jim Wilson, Ted Leavenworth, Wesley Towne, Randall Tonini and Brian Bell offer wise insight, heartfelt advice and light-hearted humor in this panel discussion, recorded in Temecula, California at one of our Training Weekends. They answer questions concerning when it is appropriate to pause an expository teaching series, topical sermons, how many cross references are appropriate in a sermon, "gospel-smoothies", preaching on culturally sensitive and hot-button issues, and how to raise up the next generation of expository preachers.
