Stories of leadership and life with Jo Saxton and Steph O'Brien

Jan 29, 2018

Steph shares stories from her life about how she has unintentionally broken the mold on many occasions by standing up for what she feels is right or following God’s calling.

Listen in to hear how not to stand up to a gym teacher like teenage Steph did, but how God used it to grow her capacity and for God's truth to be proclaimed. Steph also shares how being a female pastor (and previously a single one) also unintentionally broke molds and brought conflict but also breakthrough. 

 

Discussion questions:

1) Where have you broken the mold in your life without intentionally setting out to do so?

2) Where have you been afraid to do something right or stand up for someone because you fear breaking a mold?

3) Think of some specific situations where Jesus broke the mold.

What does the phrase ‘breaking the mold’ mean? Is it a good thing? In this introductory episode to a new series, Jo and Steph talk about the limitations of molds, how we can be blind to them and how they hold us back as leaders - both by keeping us from stepping into things and also stopping us from helping others to step into things.

 

Discussion questions:

1) What are ways which we are being held back because of the molds society, church etc has placed on us?

2) Which molds are we blind to because we fit the mold, and so we are blind to how that mold is holding other people back?

3) Who are some people or leaders in your life who you have seen break the mold in ways that have been really meaningful to you?
