Here at 200churches we love to connect you, our small church pastor friends, with people, services, and ministries that benefit you. It's not very often we run across something as fundamentally beneficial to small church pastors as the 95Network!
In Episode 295 we talk with Dale Sellers, the Executive Director of the 95Network. He shares his vision for how small church pastors can be encouraged, supported, and helped by becoming a part of this Network.
Jeff and Jonny encourage you, no matter the size of your church, to have your church pay for the annual cost - which is less than $2/week. Less than that! As you might plan your 2019 church budget, include the massive, whopping cost of $95 for a whole year of being a part of the 95Network! You won't regret it!
Listen to the episode, check out their website, and see if this isn't the best thing since sliced bread for small church pastors! Jeff and Jonny have a lengthy debrief and "outro" after Jeff's conversation with Dale - so don't miss it!
Finally, check out the video below if you have any doubt about joining the 95Network!
Norma V joins Jeff live in his church office studio to talk about her path to, and passion for missions! Norma is a sharp lady who has spend more than 8 years in Mexico, 20 years in Venezuela, and several years in Native culture. Norma has committed her life to ministry, leadership development, discipleship, and spiritual and soul formation.
We love having women church leaders like Norma on the podcast, as they give us great ministry perspective and wisdom. She referenced the International Training Alliance and encouraged our listeners to inquire online and see if they might want to be a part of it! Check it out!
This is a very encouraging podcast episode - ENJOY!
Jeff is joined by friend of the show and host of the Small Church Big Deal Conference, Chris Vitarelli, to talk about Chris' own ministry journey, how he came to love small churches, and the heart behind his upcoming conference in Fenton, Michigan. You will be encouraged by Chris' story and by his heart for the Church and the work he is doing. If you can make it to Michigan on October 12 and 13, make sure you do! But even if you can't, you can enjoy the wisdom of conference speaker Dave Jacobs by heading over to his Podcast Series page.
Ray Hollenbach is a HUGE fan of the 200churches Podcast, texting Jonny and me after many of our episodes come out. He gives us feedback, almost always positive, (okay, always positive!) and is a great friend and encourager.
Ray lives online at www.studentsofjesus.com. You, should check out his site, his books, his coaching, his blog posts, etc. Ray has a sharp mind and warm heart.
Ray joined us to talk about what we as pastors accept as leadership models in ministry. He takes exception to the modern "pastor as CEO" model of ministry leadership. He shares his passion for what he believes pastoral ministry really is all about.
Ray recently tweeted, Phrases like “visionary” and “executive decision” do not appear among our examples, but such phrases are all too common in the North American church, and this episode unpacks this tweet in audio form...
Pastor, you will be challenged by Ray in this episode, and we are happy to share it with you! Enjoy!
