A Brand New Episode that feels so retro! Jeff and Jonny are LIVE in studio together for this episode, talking about what they've been up to, catching their listeners up on the goings-on in their lives and ministries, and sharing what ministry is like in the (almost) new era.
How could I create this Coaching For Pastors episode and not share it with my 200churches listeners?? Here is another parallel episode for you - one I know you need! Enjoy! Check out Keith at Center Hope!
On second thought - DO TELL! Share this episode with as many pastors as you can! They all need hope and healing, or they know someone who does!
200churches listeners - this is a parallel episode with my Coaching For Pastors Podcast! This is episode 6 from that podcast and I think you're going to love it! Later this week another 200churches episode will be released, but I wanted to you get the benefit of this one. Two NASA engineers talking Church health and strategy - it's a fascinating conversation! Enjoy.

Larry Fowler is the founder of the LegacyCoalition.com. This is a ministry you've likely never heard of, or ever considered. It was true of me, until I heard of it! :-)
You are guaranteed to get some great ideas and new thoughts for ministry in this episode. It has to do with children's ministry, youth ministry, and older people... Enjoy!
Moe Dixon, a church planting ministry coordinator in New York City, joins Jeff on the podcast today to talk about race and how pastor's might approach it in their ministries. Moe is very blunt, cordial, and kind as he shares his perspective on the America he is raising a family in and doing ministry in, and how he has approached standing up for the marginalized in society, while remaining true to his calling and ministry.
If you want to learn more on this very important and timely topic, Moe recommends the following:
Color of Compromise - Jemar Tisby
White Fragility - Robin DiAngelo
Insider Outsider - Bryan Loritts
I Am Still Here - Austin Channing Brown

Jonny joins Jeff on the front and back of this episode for summary and analysis! We know you will be challenged, educated, inspired, and encouraged by this episode!
Mandy Smith, lead pastor of University Christian Church in Cincinnati OH joins the guys to talk about how our pining for "back to normal" might just be very like the Israelites' complaining in the wilderness and desiring to "back to Egypt". What if we've been broken out of our prison and bondage and have actually been set free to pursue a better land of ministry?
The basis for this conversation is from a post Mandy wrote for Missio Alliance. We hope you are challenged and encouraged to lead with new inspiration into the coming months! Jonny and I will be back next week for a discussion on race and ministry leadership with a pastor/church planter in NYC.
Mandy joined us in the past on Episode 223 - There is Freedom in Transparency as a Pastor.
Dave Jacobs from SmallChurchPastor.com and the Small Church Pastor Facebook group joins Jeff and Jonny to share a very personal message.
As believers and as pastors we don't always agree on doctrine, and the guys hope to model deep love and unity in spite of differing doctrinal positions.
Jesus called his followers to be one, enjoying unity and love, so that the world would know that the Father sent Him! We hope you are challenged toward unity by this episode! With... a little fun too!
