Gravity Leadership Podcast
Summary: Curated conversations with the Gravity Leadership Community on what it looks like practically to orient our lives and our leadership in the love of Christ, learning to lead like Jesus, live on mission, and make disciples in our post-Christian world.
We recap our 7 missional theology axioms and talk about why we have them in the first place. Why are they important? What do they accomplish for us?
We added a 7th missional theology axiom because that’s what we do: change things as we go. It has to do with how we learn and grow. If the goal of our discipleship is divine union in love, the way we grow into love isn’t by getting more information about it, but by directly participating [...]
Part 2 of our sixth missional theology axiom, which is that the goal of our discipleship is not moral perfection or cognitive certitude. The goal of discipleship is divine union. In this episode, we talk specifically about this axiom affects not just our personal discipleship, but our entire leadership philosophy and practice, including the discipleship [...]
Our sixth missional theology axiom is that the goal of our discipleship is not moral perfection or cognitive certitude. The goal of discipleship is divine union. Airtight theological systems nor perfect behavior are the goal of our salvation. Salvation is being invited to participate in the life of the Trinity, and thus our growth in [...]

What do you do when you realize you’re a better preacher than you are a person? That’s the story that starts this podcast on our 5th missional theology axiom: Whatever God does through you he always also does in you. As leaders, we are always full participants in any transformation we help to bring about. We don’t [...]
In this episode, we look back on the 4 missional theology axioms we’ve covered so far. We do some review and some riffing, offering a few extra thoughts about how they work and why they’re important for living a truly integrated missional life. We surf from trinitarian theology, to yelling at our kids, to how we’re [...]
God cares more your discipleship and growth than you do. In this podcast, we talk about why trusting the truth this axiom is so vital for our discipleship.
God doesn't meet us where we should be, or where we wish we were, but right where we really are. This is profoundly good news for our life and leadership.
God is just like Jesus is the 2nd missional theology axiom we use in our coaching. In this episode, Matt Tebbe and Ben Sternke talk about why that changes everything that there is “no unchristlikeness” in God at all. Here are links to previous podcasts in this series: Axiom 1: God is Always Present and At [...]
We start a series on the missional theology axioms we work through in our coaching. Matt Tebbe and Ben Sternke share a few thoughts on the first axiom: God is always present and at work… something most Christians would affirm, but we don’t often live as if it’s true.
