Spiritually Led is a blog created by Mark Grote for the purpose of developing spiritual awareness in Christians who are learning to walk in a deeper, more spiritual relationship with God. The primary topics discussed include aspects of leadership, church, relationships and general subject matter related to spiritual growth in people and churches.
Mark Grote serves as a leader and co-founder of Encounter International Ministries. He is a writer and blogger and also a Senior Advertising Manager for HP. Mark also host Sought Out Radio, a weekly format talk show about spirituality heard Thursday afternoons on KCIS Radio in the Seattle area. A former television producer and radio talk show host at a Seattle-area Christian radio station, Mark is veteran of several younger church plants where he has been active in the prophetic and as a spiritual leader and advisor. For the last 5 years Mark has focused on helping Christians develop a deeper spiritual awareness and commitments to the call on their lives.
Mark is deeply passionate about how we ‘do’ church and desires to see church transition from its one demensional focus of today to becoming resourced based, spiritually led, relational and gifted. His desire is to help raise up prototype churches that are released from the “fame game” or slaves to money. It is his hope that his life will be a shining example for how the focus should always be on attracting God over people.
This blog is not adverse to debate and strong opinions as is so often the case in church. Christians should be able to “reason together” on church and the process we are on as Christians.
To some of you, this blog may appear provocative at times, but that is only for the purpose to spur on debate, discussion and to stir up thoughts on subjects related to spirituality. The goal here is to sharpen some iron and move us away from being religious and more toward a deeper, intimate relationship with the Father. Feel free to participate in the discussions on Spiritually Led.
