Introducing Bryan Mowrey - Part Two

When and how did you recognise your call into church ministry?

I’ll be preaching on this in my first session. Can’t spoil the surprise!

Can you tell us about some of the highs and lows of your time in church leadership?

The highs of church ministry come from being on the front line of seeing life change. When Jesus turned water into wine, there’s a statement John made that has always stuck with me. The master of the feast and everyone else at the party enjoyed the wine but didn’t know where it came from. However, those who served it did. To see the transformational process in people’s life requires proximity and I get that joy in leading.

The lows of ministry are watching people self-destruct and not being able to do anything about it. It really hurts.

What does your role within Confluence look like and how does that work in balance with your church leadership?

My main role in Confluence is to bring strategic vision to how we plant and build reproducing churches. For the most part, my role with Confluence and Jubilee are synergistic. The tension is when I get caught in the detail, which happens more than I would like to admit. I attempt to have a 70/30 division of my time between local and translocal.

What are you most looking forward to at the New Ground Leadership Conference?

Meeting new friends! I admire and love Dave and Liz so much, and the leaders I’ve met in New Ground have been fantastic! I’m also interested in learning - You guys are crushing it!
