    Podcast Ep.64: What Makes for Toxic Churches (Dr. Chris Creech)

    Podcast Ep.64: What Makes for Toxic Churches (Dr. Chris Creech)

     Let me start with a question, maybe a bit tongue in cheek. What if during this Covid 19 season while the church has been fasting from meeting corporately that the antagonist in the church have had a huge change of heart and are now determined to come back fully supporting the pastor and the church […]

    Podcast Ep.63: The State of the Gospel in America (Brandon Kimber)

    During this Covid 19 season (I’m sure it will have a better name down the road) I have been thinking a lot about what this will do to or for the church. Will we be stronger for it? Is this one of those events that God will use to sift the church, from those who […]

    Podcast Ep:62 Pastoring During The Coronavirus

    What a time we live. Who would have thought even three months ago that this would be our story. Stay at home. Places closed. People lose jobs. During this time my heart has mostly gone to the pastor who longs to continue shepherding his people who are severely being tested. Yet here we are. To […]

    Podcast Ep. 38: How the Soul Grows Through Loss (Dr. Gerald Sittser)

    Podcast Ep. 38: How the Soul Grows Through Loss (Dr. Gerald Sittser)

    Aside from the Bible, one other book served as my lifeline during the hardest period of my life; my wife’s brain surgery and subsequent struggle to recover her speech, reading/writing skills, and my son’s passing to cancer just months after. That book was A Grace Disguised by Dr. Gerald Sittser. I’ve read the book probably […]

    Podcast Ep.25: Leaving A Godly Legacy! (John and Janine Schultz)

    Oh, the great stuff we can gain from the previous generations. But how will we ever do that unless we pause long enough and listen to their stories.  When is the last time you sat down with an elderly saint in your church, or even sat down with your parents or grandparents and listened to […]

    Podcast Ep.61: The Pastor and Good Doctrine (Pastor Dan Samms)

    We live in a day when increasingly people are living in a vacuum, many around us not sure what to believe or even not sure what they believe. This is why it is so important that the pastor and church leaders and even those who are part of the body of Christ own what they […]

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.

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.

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.
