Today, on episode 105, our guest is Sam Prellwitz, Discipleship Pastor at Ripon Community Church in Ripon, Wisconsin. Jonny and Sam met at Bethel Seminary and are good friends who support each other in ministry.
Sam is a young pastor who has successfully served at his church through a staff transition from youth pastor to discipleship pastor. Sam shares his story, how he and his senior pastor led the change in their staff, as well as effectively leading other programmatic changes in their church as well.
Sam talks about the importance of communicating with one "staff voice", the benefits of testing the waters before going public, cheerleading change, and much more. We know you will enjoy this episode and walk away with a good lesson or two to put into practice almost immediately.
