What a refreshing conversation!
I kick off this episode by asking Ryan Kibbe, pastor of Elevation Church in Green Bay, his most embarrassing memory. His response is hilarious!
Before we go any further, please take a moment to connect with Elevation Church Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ElevationChurchWi/
The conversation begins with us talking about Ryan’s friendship with Bill Vanderbush who I interviewed in Sozo Episode 0003. Bill was an influence and contributor to Ted Dekker’s book The Forgotten Way and is a regular speaker at the Kingdom Culture Conference and also at the upcoming FREE Accellerant Conference at Elevation ARC facility in Green Bay on May 17th through May 19th. (Visit Elevation website for details)
Ryan Kibbe’s quote is featured on The Forgotten Way website:
“The Forgotten Way is as important to this generation as C.S. Lewis’ Mere Christianity was to his generation.”
Here is a video put out by Ted Dekker featuring Ryan Kibbe:
In This Interview:
Ryan and I discuss topics such as what it mean to be “in Christ“?
“You are royalty! You are amazing! You are the Light of the World!”
Do you see yourself this way? Are you operating in your true identity?
Ryan answers the question, “What is the purpose of the church?” We unpack what the New Testament and Jesus says about our Apostolic mission as believers and about the five fold ministry to equip the church to do the work of the ministry changing atmospheres wherever we go.
THIS is why Elevation Church is Building the ARC (Apostolic Resource Center). A place to Come, Get Equipped, and Go!
Location: 2605 S Oneida St Green Bay, WI 54304
Come to learn your identity in Christ. Get Equipped to discover your particular purpose and function in the body of Christ. Go be ministers of reconciliation in this world and transform the world in your own spheres of influence.
“Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.” Hebrews 10:24-25 NLT
Ryan and I also talk about the church wounds that have caused many to neglect meeting together, or even giving up on church entirely. How do we refrain from taking offense? How do we embrace the forgiveness that will bring healing? As a believer, you have been given authority by Jesus to forgive and bring healing to the world!
Enjoy this conversation with Ryan Kibbe! I trust it will help you learn how to fully enter into and engage a growing community of faith. We want this for you! Jesus wants this for you! The benefits are worth the risk!
I pray that you will come to fully experience the essence of the Kingdom of God in your life and home which is defined by Scripture as:
“Righteousness, Peace, and Joy in the Holy Spirit”!
