Ken Klein - Christ Wesleyan Church, Greensboro, NC
Season 2, Ep. 50267
Ken Klein has an amazing story of struggle, enlightenment and fruitfulness through disciplemaking.A successful lead pastor, he got fired from a fast-growing church because, "We want to be a megachurch and you're too old to lead a megachurch..."After a few months spent recovering from shock Ken took a "boring" factory job but eventually found himself pastoring co-workers through cancer, divorce, etc. Finally winding up at Christ Wesleyan, the church where he found the Lord as a much younger man. This century old congregation resisted change as most do. However, when breakthrough came the results were amazing.Today the congregation is multi-ethnic, disciplemaking focused and mission driven. They've planted numerous churches, including one that shares their facility.Ken sees COVID-19 as an opportunity rather than an obstacle. You'll want to know why...

Today, Jimi takes us on a romp through his first church plant, missionary experience in Belieze and a process of racial reconciliation including a prescription for healing. After that I asked him about his first three books (we'll save the fourth along with his relationship to Oxford University till next week).In 1983 Jimi walked through the doors of Hope Chapel Foursquare Church in Hermosa Beach, California. This podcast is the first of three. Jimi describes how he rediscovered Jesus, volunteered to serve as a janitor (while driving an XKE Jaguar to work) so he could better connect with the church staff who would disciple him.Since then he planted Hope Chapels in Sherman Oaks, CA, Belize City, Belize and now Bridging Austin. He's also written several books.He is passionate about building bridges wherever spatial division and social segregation exist.He planted, and pastors, Bridging Austin, a reconciling community committed to the inclusion of the racially different and the differently abled.
