Dr. Cherith Nordling is an Associate Professor of Theology at Northern Seminary and the daughter of Dr. Gordon Fee.
Remember 33 episodes ago when Cherith Nordling came on the podcast and destroyed our brains with what can only be described as a "Christological Tornado"? Well she's BACK and better than ever - talking today about Theology, small churches, and the work of the Holy Spirit in the world.
Cherith describes herself as an ecclesiastical mutt and if you listen to her story it will be hard to disagree! Still, she has seen the Spirit at work throughout church traditions and across the United States and around the world. Cherith's passion for the mission of God is palpable in this episode and her journey is sure to inspire you as you lead your church.
Put your seatbelt on, brace for impact, and enjoy!
Marc Shefelton is the pastor at Buffalo Prairie Church in Buffalo Prairie, IL. When we sat down for lunch recently, he had no idea that I (Jeff) had my portable 200churches Studio in my computer bag and that we were going to record an episode together right away! Surprise Marc! :-)
But record we did. And I asked Marc about his first three years of pastoral ministry in this, his first church. This is an interesting glimpse into the life of the small church pastor. I was reminded of many experiences of my own in my early years of ministry. It's pastors like Marc who are going to take us into the future of whatever pastoral ministry is going to look like in the rest of the 21st century.
On this very special episode of the 200churches podcast, we welcome Kayla Craig to talk about the experience of being a pastor's wife and what pastors and church leaders need to hear and learn from their spouses. Kayla is a journalist turned work-at-home mom and co-host of Upside Down--a podcast about living in the upside down Kingdom of God. She also authored a children's book that you should absolutely purchase because 100% of the proceeds go toward funding adoption grants for families growing their families.
Welcome to the 200churches blog! We have hundreds of posts covering every issue imaginable. So pull up a chair, pour a cup of coffee, and stay awhile.
