On the Radio – Walk the Way

This is Walk the Way. I’m Jeff Klein. Collinsville Congregational Church is a small, pretty traditional church in Connecticut. But Pastor Jim heard about Q Place, gathered a team, and planned their first group. They knew that God wanted them to begin something for those who don’t know Jesus. And it’s awesome. Their Q Place has met a few times and the people coming say they’re blessed by a safe place to come and unpack their spiritual questions. Jim and his team can’t wait to begin their next group. And starting just isn’t that hard! What are you doing to...Read more …
3 Questions to consider

3 Questions to consider

Matthew 9:35-38, The Message: Then Jesus made a circuit of all the towns and villages. He taught in their meeting places, reported kingdom news, and healed their diseased bodies, healed their bruised and hurt lives. When he looked out over the crowds, his heart broke. So confused and aimless they were, like sheep with no shepherd. “What a huge harvest!” he said to his disciples. “How few workers! On your knees and pray for harvest hands!” ____________________ Why do you think Jesus’ heart broke when He saw the crowds “confused and aimless”? Jesus said there is a huge harvest, but...Read more …

This is Walk the Way. Brought to you by Q Place. I’m Jeff Klein. Russ works in the tech industry in Silicon Valley, CA; he works with people from all over the world and travels the globe. Russ also is very connected right where he lives–he’s been intentional about getting to know his neighbors. So when his church began to continually emphasize the importance of reaching others with the gospel, Russ realized he was actually “positioned” to do so! Good evangelism requires relationship–and both at work and home, Russ’ life was rich with it. So Russ signed up for training on...Read more …

Coffee and Questions

Coffee and Questions

At our very first Q Place we had five new people from our community come! On our second, four more! We were so excited! God was so good! The following is a story of His faithfulness! In the spring of 2014, a 9-week sermon series on The 9 Arts of Spiritual Conversations was presented at our church. That teaching series was reinforced with discussion and practice in an Adult Discipleship class on Sundays and in an evening small group. During the same time frame, our pastor led a group called “How to Start a Q Place.” Our church was all in for Q Place!...Read more …
Team Up in a Triad!

Team Up in a Triad!

When you’re starting a Q Place, don’t do it alone! You could start with just one partner, but it’s best to team up with two other followers of Jesus. Together you will be an initiator triad—the nucleus of your new Q Place.  Why start with a triad? Strong core. A triad is the perfect size to be both transparent and mutually accountable. When your triad is transparent, accountable, and immersed in Scripture for transformation, you have a community that is perfect for spiritual growth. Mutual support. With your mixture of gifts, skills, and personalities, you will balance each other’s strengths and weaknesses...Read more …

God Does the Heavy Lifting

How inspiring it was for On Q to discover why Tom has started a Q Place! On Q: Tom, can you tell us a little about your faith story? Tom: I grew up Catholic, but at 17 stopped going to church. I still believed in God, but didn’t believe there were any churches that allowed questions, and there were obviously questions to answer. When I was 30 I married someone from a mainline Protestant denomination who eventually got me going to church with her—but it was just what I call Catholic Lite: people mumbling the same responses week after week because it’s what their...Read more …

This is Walk the Way, brought to you by Q Place, I’m Jeff Klein. The story of Israel is the story of God delivering His people from slavery and offering them a new life in the Promised Land. But at the border, God’s people face a decision: Take take full possession of the life He has for them and leave their old one behind once and for all, or not? But despite the assurance of His presence, the people respond, No Thanks. We’re too scared; we’re not sure. We actually like Egypt and slavery better. What was holding them back?...Read more …
