Your Identity is Your Anchor - Identity in Crisis Discussion

Season 1, Ep. 6

Kevin Mannoia and Susanna Fleming unpack the idea of “identity in crisis” - how crisis is an inevitable (and often healthy) part of life. They discuss how knowing our identity in Christ, staying grounded through connection, and remembering our mission can give context to our crisis and provide opportunities for spiritual growth.


In this 8 part series on “Your Identity is Your Anchor” we’ll discuss how every pastor and Christian leader will confront tough times. The best response is not just being skillful at handling pressure, but having a sound identity formed with intention over time. That’s where the power of Christian leadership and pastoral influence comes from.

  • 1. Generous Engagement - Why Engage?

    18:49
    Christians are called to engagement with the world. That’s what we mean when we say we are “the hands and feet of Jesus,” bringing the Kingdom of God wherever we go. Unfortunately, we often choose to engage in ways that can feel more like a sales pitch than real concern for the world in which we live and participate.Becoming generous in our engagement requires a mindset like that of Christ, where salvation isn’t giving up on the world but is instead redemption of God’s creation. “Your will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven,” wasn’t a platitude - it was the goal. Let’s consider what that looks like as we prepare ourselves for generous engagement.
