Jeff unpacks the phrase - "The church grew beyond the pastor's ability to lead it." Why does this happen? Especially when the church only grows to 250 people?!
At the beginning of 2019, Jeff dives into what it takes to stay a step ahead of your church, to continue to grow as a leader. As goes the pastor, so goes the church. Pastor, what is your plan to grow personally in 2019? If we have no plan to grow, why would we think that our church or church family will grow?
Enjoy the episode!
Dave Jacobs is definitely the OG Friend of the Show! He has been recording with Jeff and Jonny since 2013, when they were all in High School! Well, maybe not in High School... but a lot younger!
Dave is the founder of SmallChurchPastor.com, blogs at DaveJacobs.net, and is the Benevolent Dictator of the Small Church Pastor Group on Facebook. If you are a lead or senior pastor, and are not in that group, you should request membership in it!
Dave joined Jeff and Jonny LIVE in the studio in Des Moines, IA and the three of them talked all about the importance of vision. Vision is like the gas in your churches tank. Don't run out of gas! Dave shares 5 ways to keep vision alive in your 200church, and the guys chime in regularly.

Tyler Ramsbey is the pastor at Renovation Church in Garretson, South Dakota. Tyler is committed to his church plant ministry, to his family, to learning and growing, and to involvement in his community. If it sounds like Tyler is a busy guy, you'd be fooled. He has some amazing secrets to share about how he maintains strong family health.
Tyler has been a 200churches listener for years, and has reached out to encourage Jeff and Jonny several times. We are thrilled to have Tyler as our guest on Episode 308. Tyler is a classic Millennial who will both encourage and inspire you.
This is a fantastic leadership and ministry episode with Rob Tarnoviski, Lead Pastor of Bethel Church in Northeast Philadelphia. Rob has been in that role for 23 years and shares just a ton of wisdom on the pastor's personal life, balancing stress and the demands of ministry, keeping family relationships healthy in a busy ministry, and so much more!
Rob and Jeff were roommates in college way back in the middle 80's, and together they now have more than 50 years of pastoral ministry between them. I (Jeff) listen to every message that Rob preaches at Bethel, even though I know he's just a knucklehead I met in college. We've been great friends for over 35 years now and I have all the respect in the world for Rob.
This episode is a great gift of inspiration, instruction, and encouragement from Rob to YOU! We know you'll enjoy it and truly benefit from it!
