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.

Pastor, you will be challenged by Ray in this episode, and we are happy to share it with you! Enjoy!
