Episode 239 - What Authors and Small Church Pastors Dream Of - A Story Of Radical Life Change with Steve Mason
Steve and Pam Mason are members of Jeff & Jonny's church in Orange City IA. But they weren't just five years ago! They claim they were hiding out on their acreage, Steve spending an inordinate amount of time in the basement, with no relationships, suffering from depression and anxiety. The picture was bleak.
But one day, "a guy" in our church decided to step out of his comfort zone, move toward Steve, and just be a friend. That movement toward Steve would ultimately change both Steve and Pam's lives. In this episode, Jeff talks with Steve, asking him to tell his story. It's really the story of small church ministry, and the story of small church pastors.
Steve is a great friend and encouragement to us both, and we are excited to share his story with you - and hopefully inspire and encourage you through it. This same journey of life change is happening every day, in small churches all around the world!
We talk quite a bit about a book titled The Cure - What if God isn't who you think He is, and neither are you. If you have never read this book, you really should. :-)
