Show Notes

Pastor Alan DiDio leads a small church in a small place that’s making a huge impact all around the world, and we're thrilled to welcome him back for a conversation about Gideon, another person from a small place that made a huge impact.

Not only is Gideon often misrepresented as fearful, but he also points us to some timely lessons about how present-day leaders can help the current church navigate doubt, oppression, and a major shift in how the church can measure growth.

Here are just a few of the truth takeaways you'll hear in this conversation:

"Trying to accomplish a spiritual calling through natural means is always going to lead to frustration."

"Our identity must define our activity."

"Gideon had doubts about God, but also the courage to voice those doubts to God."

"God can do more with a committed core than we can do with a casual crowd."
