Pastor Bryan and Tammy came to Red Lodge Alliance Church in the year 2000. They raised their boys in Red Lodge and have become a constant presence of love and faith in the community. Pastor Bryan, in his quiet and unassuming way, shares his story of consistency and faithfulness as pastor of this church that welcomes outsiders who've moved in as well as long established Red Lodge residents.
As the pastor of a 200church, Bryan has been a participant listener to our podcast. It didn't take long for Jeff to realize that Bryan possesses those very qualities that bring strength to local church leadership and provides an environment of love and acceptance to its members.
Thanks for introducing us to you and your ministry Bryan - and we honor you with this episode for your love and service to the people of Red Lodge and to your church family at Red Lodge Alliance Chapel! May God bless you and Tammy and your family for your faithfulness!
Dan Reiland wrote a unique kind of book this year - a devotional book specifically for leaders! He has never written one like it, and it is to nurture the hearts of leaders in 2022, when they might be beaten down some by the past few years. Jeff and Jonny spoke with him for Jeff's "Coaching For Pastors" podcast, but they intended to air it on the 200churches Podcast as well - and this is that episode!
Here's the link to Dan's new book: Leadership Alone Isn't Enough - 40 Devotions To Strengthen Your Soul.
Dan is the founder of https://www.danreiland.com and the Executive Pastor at https://www.12stone.com.
Jeff kicked off the Coaching For Pastors Podcast as a daily podcast for pastors - two months ago on March 7. Since then, there have been Monday-Friday episodes that are all under 10 minutes per episode, and a Saturday "Weekend Edition" episode that is long form and includes a conversation with a guest who brings expertise to the ministry conversation.
Today, on Episode 380 - I include one of the weekday episodes, and one of the Weekend Edition episodes - two FULL episodes - all on Episode 380 of the 200churches Podcast! I want you to experience the Coaching For Pastors Podcast and what you are missing if you are not subscribed to it.
You can subscribe to "Coaching For Pastors" wherever you listen to your podcasts.
What a fantastic conversation this is with Cherith Nordling, theologian, professor, mentor, author, and lover of Jesus and his Church.
