Don't learn things the hard way...
A collaborative group of men and women who love Jesus and His church come together to share their experiences in ministry--wins & failures. I love how passionate they are about helping leaders in various stages & roles in ministry avoid common pitfalls and mistakes. They don't just talk about the problems, they offer practical solutions from different perspectives. Add to that a bit of wit and a twist of humor and it makes for an enjoyable listening experience!
Simple and practical!
It is what the titular states: practical! Just enough info and content to keep you wanting more. Enjoy the fun and authentic nature of the hosts and guests. Not scripted, just good conversation. Essential for any church leaders.
