Matt Chandler on being a reformed charismatic

This is the second of a four-part interview with Matt Chandler. At Together For the Gospel, Chandler began his talk by claiming to be a reformed charismatic. After Grudem's recent interview on this subject at New Word Alive, I was eager to ask Matt just what he meant by this, as there is a broad spectrum of people who would describe themselves as charismatic. His response including the memorable phrase, "I have never read anything in the Scripture where the devil was in the business of … [Read more...]

Matt Chandler Video Interview on London, Newfrontiers, and "Prayer and Fasting"

This is the first part of an interview with Matt Chandler filmed here in London. I commend it to you, and in this first session we speak a lot about the Prayer and Fasting event he attending with Newfrontiers and his own sense of the importance of prayer. Here is a quote to whet your appetite: "Its my understanding from Scripture and experience that I am a very flawed person, redeemed by God, and that connection with pushing into the one thing I really need is imperative, especially for … [Read more...]

Matt Chandler on leadership in London, UK

As this post was only up on the site for a short time before New Word Alive, and it might have got buried among all the other posts, I thought I would bring it back up to the top for a while in case you missed it first time round.  We do have some places left for this event, so it would be great to see you there if you are free.  I am going to check out for a few days and will hopefully start posting some interviews after the weekend.If you are in any form of leadership in a church or a p … [Read more...]

"You Don't Need Me Here" – John Piper

John Piper preached from Romans 8 for The Village Church recently while Matt Chandler was recovering from surgery.  I loved the way he began his sermon by stating that, having listened to recent talks by other pastors in the church, he was confident that the church did not really need Piper to help them deal with the challenges they currently face.  One of the best marks of a truly great leader is their ability to raise other leaders. Chandler has clearly passed that test.  No wonder Piper said … [Read more...]

Matt Chandler Video Blog

Chandler has made a clear decision to deal with his cancer in public rather than in private. This means allowing the church he leads and others to see what God is doing through his experience.  This week he has started a video blog which will be shared each week at The Village Church blog. … [Read more...]

Matt Chandler: The Weight Of Pastoring And The Knowledge Of Christ

It somehow seems appropriate that the second sermon I am sharing on the blog this year comes from Matt Chandler. Matt has a very similar philosophy to us at Jubilee, and his illness has driven us to pray for him. It has also prompted me to listen to and watch more of his talks.  The following is from a few years ago and is very honest about some struggles he had been facing just a few weeks before. Church leadership is not easy. Why don't we all make a resolution this year to do our best to … [Read more...]

Matt Chandler Video On Facing Chemo and Radiotherapy

The Village Church has released a video from Chandler filmed last Friday and shown in church yesterday. In it he speaks about what the future holds, and what we can all learn from this event.  Here is a sample: "I think most men are wooed and seduced into lives that don't matter, concentrating on things that are temporary and frivolous and so one of the reasons why something like this is…good for all of us is we get that . . . veil of mortality lifted a bit so we can see clearly,  there is an end … [Read more...]

Matt Chandler On The Role Of Men

I recently listened to these three talks from Chandler about how us men should be. As Matt puts it himself, in these talks he is "going after" us. If you are a woman, suggest your husband listens to these but don't nag him about it.  If you are a man, stop what you are doing and prepare to be as challenged as I was. May God help us all to live in the good of this message and make us better husbands and fathers:Defining Masculinity (transcript) Men as Husbands (transcript) Men as Fathers … [Read more...]
