Marc Shefelton is the pastor at Buffalo Prairie Church in Buffalo Prairie, IL. When we sat down for lunch recently, he had no idea that I (Jeff) had my portable 200churches Studio in my computer bag and that we were going to record an episode together right away! Surprise Marc! :-)
But record we did. And I asked Marc about his first three years of pastoral ministry in this, his first church. This is an interesting glimpse into the life of the small church pastor. I was reminded of many experiences of my own in my early years of ministry. It's pastors like Marc who are going to take us into the future of whatever pastoral ministry is going to look like in the rest of the 21st century.
