If you can appreciate camo, unkempt beards, frog hunting and family business—with a reverence for God throughout—then chances are you might be a Duck Dynasty fan. It’s an uncommon reality television show in this day and age that depicts a family who respects one another and demonstrates positive values that, yes, even the church could learn from.

Love your family despite your differences. In every given family, there’s a wide range of personalities and preferences. Who would have ever thought Uncle Si and Phil could be brothers? Clearly, there are some major differences. This is, of course, true for the church, but we’re still called to be a family. It’s easier to avoid interaction and confrontation, or simply jump ship to another church, instead of working out our differences, but true family sticks together and works out their problems. Sure, there might be yelling or periods of silence, but forgiving and
Live off the fat of the land. Shooting and eating squirrels from your backyard may not be fine cuisine to you, but to the Robertson family, they kill what they have from their land and enjoy the bounty of God’s blessings. Within every church are many, many resources, including Joe the plumber, Beth the web designer and Jan the gardener enthusiast. Drawing volunteers from within your congregation and relying on the gifts and talents of church members can help strengthen the church body as well as keep operating costs down.

Be creative. The entire Duck Dynasty empire all began with one duck call. A solution to one small problem became the jumping off point for a huge brand with a plethora of products. How has God empowered your church to be creative in the way it reaches into the community and beyond? There might be one small thing your church is really good at, and that might be what God has called it to do. By opening the door to creativity, you never know what might be possible.

This is true for the church as well. While the church is a sort of business, at the end of the day, it’s about people and relationships and how God calls us to serve one another. Let’s not get too distracted by the business of church that we forget we’re here to serve “even the least of these.”

Teach the next generation. At every opportunity, family patriarch Phil Robertson aims to teach his grandchildren as many life lessons as he can. Whether he’s teaching them how to skin bull frogs, how to fish, what to look for in a mate, or how to survive in the wild, he strongly feels it is his duty to pass the torch to the next generation In this way, so too should the church look to the next generation to teach them and bring them up in the ways of the church so that traditions and values do not die. Mentoring young people in ministry is a key way to keep the fire burning and ensure that the mission of the church will be passed down.
