Helpful and Encouraging for Christ-Followers
This podcast has great information and real-life interviews with individuals who we can better serve in ministry. Listen if you're interested in making disciples and helping to meet the needs of those who have experienced the brokenness of this world. Learn how to serve Him well. Great topics and discussion for those who volunteer to serve in the church!
Too denomination specific
I thought this would be a good pod cast for me but as a female pastor it is not. The topics addressed-specifically pastor burnout- focus on male pastors.
I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to this podcast. Jeff and Dana bring their many years of small church experience to this podcast, giving practical wisdom to church leaders. The stories shared on this podcast give insight and resources for the work of ministry. I highly recommend this as a resource.
