Show Notes:



  • 1:42 - Men of the Kingdom
  • 2:08 - Chuck Colson Centurion program
  • 2:37 - Being told by Chuck Colson, "If you don't think you're doing something for the Lord right now, you're missing it. As a Christian there's no such thing as retirement. There's just repurposement."
  • 3:54 - "The biblical model of the church is everybody has been given a gift by the Holy spirit and that gift isn't to edify them, it's to serve the church and equip and encourage other people."
  • 4:33 - Describing Men of the Kingdom - how he determined "the great work" he is meant to do in life.
  • 7:03 - A personal mission statement answers the questions -  What are the unique gifts that you've been given? What are the burdens on your heart? Where do we feel completely alive?
  • 7:28 - Three eternal questions: Who's your audience? What timeframe are you living your life? What treasures are you going after?
  • 8:52 - Reading the Beatitudes with a Dad filter (Matt 5:3-12)
  • 16:05 - Being asked to play a dad role for his friend who passed away tragically
  • 18:46 - Living from the personal mission statement
  • 21:28 - Final thoughts from Dean: Have courage. Pray dangerous prayers. What kind of mission do I have for my life? Take risks. Fail often and early. Don't be a critic. Be an encourager.
  • 23:28 - Man in the Arena - "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." Theodore Roosevelt
