Episode 337 - Leadership Lessons For Pastors From An MK Turned International Missionary with Dave...
In this Episode, Dave, an International Worker with the Christian & Missionary Alliance, shares lessons he's learned from a lifetime of ministry and missions, first as an MK, and now as a two-term veteran missionary to a creative access country.
Dave has learned lessons on church planting in the very hard places, cross cultural understanding and communication, how to tame cultural biases and reverse stubborn preconceived notions about the "other", and not a small amount about himself in the process.
Dave also gives a ton of counsel and encouragement to pastors in this conversation. He and Jeff sat down for this recording with no agenda and no time limit. Newly acquainted, they asked and answered questions from one another and explored each other's understandings about people, cultures, missions, and ministry.
Again, this episode is Jeff & Jonny's gift to you, pastors! Enjoy - and listen at least twice. You'll be glad you did.
