This episode was borne out of a blog post that John Finkelde wrote for his website, GrowAHealthyChurch.com titled: 5 Things I Would Say To A Young Pastor.
Here are the five things that John shares:
1. Love your spouse unreservedly & flee adultery like it was a hellish plague.
2. Focus on church growth & church growth alone & your soul will shrivel.
3. Never forsake the place of personal, private prayer & bible study.
4. Get some good ministry friends & love them generously.
5. Get a recreational pursuit that has nothing to do with church.
The guys talk through each of these at length - and have produced a very entertaining and encouraging episode for pastors of all size churches, but especially pastors of small churches! Enjoy!
