This conversation unpacks the content in Bobby’s new book, "The Path to Being a Pastor".
My pastor recommended I listen to every episode of this podcast. Now I tell the same to other pastors. Some have more gems than others, yet you’ll find treasure nonetheless. Both pastors are easy to listen to and share a Christ centred love for the church.
concise and helpful
The hosts explain what they think is most important about a given topic. Great podcast and fun too.
I think it’s great to hear good leaders in the SBC discuss hot topic and pastoral issues. I think it would add depth to have some guests from outside the SBC to add insight, challenge, and a greater breadth to the topics. Some minority and female contributions would not hurt.
