     The Columbia Metro Connection is sponsored and supported by the Columbia Metro Baptist Association and the almost 100 partner churches that support the ministry of the CMBA.  For this week’s episode, we’ve received special support from Southern Mutual Church Insurance.
     This podcast features Operation Inasmuch’s Executive Director, John Daugherty.  Operation Inasmuch is a national nonprofit that employs proven models to motivate, train, and equip churches to move more congregants out of the sanctuary seats and into the streets to serve the neediest in their communities.

Hosts for this week’s Podcast:


  • Operation Inasmuch motivates, trains, and equips churches to move more congregants out of the sanctuary seats and into the streets.
  • Operation Inasmuch’s goal is to turn out 60% or more of a church’s average weekly attendance to serve in the community.
  • When a congregation is serving the community it invigorates the church with new life.
  • We’ve got the basics of disciple-making down: Bible study, teaching, and learning.  But serving is the next step of disciple-making.
  • Dave Grinnell shares the power of mobilizing people outside of their own focus and how it’s energized the church.
  • Inasmuch has helped revitalize and restore churches who were on their way to death.
  • Find where God is working and join Him in that work.
  • Operation Inasmuch is not a pastor led process.  It is a lay-led ministry.  But the pastor has to be seen as supporting this ministry.
