    Podcast Ep.91: Conversation With My Dad (John Schultz)

    Podcast Ep.91: Conversation With My Dad (John Schultz)

    Legacy matters. Godly legacy matters more. I had a wonderful opportunity recently to sit down and have a great conversation with my nearly 92 year old father, John Schultz. I mainly wanted to leave something for our family. My mom and dad currently have sixteen grandchildren and thirty great-grandchildren. I hope one day they will […]

    Podcast Ep.90: Being A Loving Husband (Dan Stegeman)

    Podcast Ep.90: Being A Loving Husband (Dan Stegeman)

    I reflect often on how the church is as healthy as it’s families. And a healthy family is where there is a man, a husband and father who loves Jesus, and the gospel is the basis of his commitment to marriage. (I also know many single moms who experience health as they rely on Jesus […]

Very honest and insightful

CS Lewis made the comment that delight is incomplete until it is expressed. I think that is true in the realm of pastoral labor. There is much to reflect upon and Mitch has done an excellent job at giving a quality depth of expression to the ups and downs of life in the position of pastor. This has been a help to me in arranging my affections and struggles as a pastor.

Mitch is a good friend and counselor. Thus I am not suprised that his podcast would demonstrate the Biblical Wisdom, conviction, kindness and courage which he demonstrates in person. Mitch has been through many minsitry battles and his theology has been forged through Word, prayer and walking in faith for many years. Proverbs say to walk with the wise, for we will grow wise. Therfore, this is a podcast worth listening to.

A lot you never think about and should.

Mitch Schultz presents the real struggles and joys of being a pastor understandable to everyone with great humility. I would recommend listening to this to bring an insight to church life that is rarely addressed and more oftern than not misunderstood. I look forward to each new production along with the other listener.
