Welcome to “Ask a Pastor Anything”. In each episode, I sit down with a fellow pastor, clergy-person, or anyone who loves the big-C church, to talk about a question you all want to know about.

Questions are all across the board, like how to practice self-care, what seminary taught us, and what God says about *insert hot topic here*.

The best part? The questions come from you, so ask away!

None of us are experts, and none of us know all the answers. But we all have experiences and a story that can open up some great conversation.
