Cy Hudson and I have been friends for a few years. I first met him when he and his family arrived on campus at the seminary we both attended. Throughout the years, I have been blown away by his humble heart, generous spirit and pure wisdom.
Cy is one of the leaders of Shadowland Community Church in Nicholasville, KY with the official title or Pastor of Servant Mobilization. I get it, you might see that and wonder what in the world that means. Well, I think you’ll get a sense of it throughout this conversation; he pastors and disciples this community of devoted followers of Jesus. And He is calling this community to authentically live out the calling of the Church.
One of the things that I love about the heart of their church is that they are living out the ideals that we all read about in the pages of the New Testament. Even when it’s hard, they love and lead with a sense of openhandedness. I know that as you listen, you’ll be challenged to reevaluate some of your own practices and will be pushed to live more like Jesus.
What we’ll chat about:
In this episode, we’ll cover some ground, so fasten your seat belt.
- The calling if God
- How incredibly patient God is
- Living out your faith with authenticity
- How to be openhanded in ministry and measure what matters
- Sending people in ministry
How will it change you?
As you listen, I know you’ll be encouraged and inspired. But I also want you to ask yourself how you can live with a similar sense of openness and surrender to the work of God in your life and ministry context.
For each of us, I hope that we’ll move beyond encouragement and into application. What are the ways in which you might live or lead differently because of this conversation? Is there anything in particular that stands out to you? I’d love to know. So go ahead and leave a comment here or reach out on Facebook or Instagram @thejesusleader

I hope you’ll join the community this spring!
