We train subjects of the King to change the world like He did.

Overview of Empowering Subjects (1:29)

Overcome the busyness, burdens and problems that Satan uses to distract and weaken churches. Your congregation was meant for more than that. Use our resources to train your people make a difference in the world.

Let’s start a conversation.

“Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone” (Colossians 4:6)

Make a decision that will help free your church from any inward focus or preoccupation and move toward a focus on reaching out to our broken world.

Don’t reinvent the wheel. Utilize our well-worked- out resources, which we have revised multiple times based on experience and feedback.

Don’t settle for teaching your people a method we can use on people. Choose an approach that teaches a way of life with God so he can use us with people.

Forty Years of Experience

In forty years of church ministry, I well understand the problems, busyness and demands that plague leadership. We won’t be able to avoid all these, nor should we. But we can keep from being so overwhelmed by them that Satan thwarts our efforts to make a difference in the world.

An indispensable part of the solution is to place a strong focus on God’s mission of changing the world. Sometimes the best defense is a good offense.

I don’t remember many things from the thousands of meetings I attended during my church ministry, but I vividly remember the affirmations and appreciation I have received from people I led to the Lord and poured my life into over the years. We were made for this and called to this. We must place a priority on equipping our people to make a difference in the world.

What’s at Stake with Empowering Subjects

Our nation is deeply troubled. People are lost and hurting now, and they ultimately face the dreadful reality of judgment. If you’re like me you feel different feelings about this at different times, but in our better moments we want to help, and we know this is what God wants. Most of us are trying to do something, but sometimes we feel so trapped by all the demands and responsibilities of our busy schedules that we can’t even find ten minutes to think about what we might do.

Of all the proposals for what the church should do to help with the trouble in the world, I’m convinced the very best one is to listen to Jesus and follow his example.

Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.  When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”

Matthew 9:35-38

When our Lord saw the broken people of his world, he compared them to a harvest and said the need is for workers (Matthew 9:35-38). In this context a worker is someone who serves like Jesus: giving good teaching, telling good news, and doing good deeds (v. 35).We might call these discipleship, evangelism, and service (or ministry).

Jesus' ministry consisted of giving good teaching, telling good news, and doing good deeds
Matthew 4:23 and 9:35

Jesus not only did these things personally, he trained others to do them too (Matt. 10).
The combination of his work and theirs had a profound effect on the world indeed.

Make a difference in the world through being leaven, by imitating Christ and speaking his message.

It is not good for the church of Christ to be distracted from the mission of Christ. Empowering Subjects can help your congregation escape the demoralizing quagmire of constant meetings, busyness, and problems by equipping your people to do what Christ himself did in his ministry. Your congregation, friends, and neighbors have everything to gain by your doing so.
