From 1 Lead Pastor to 3 Senior Pastors: How we are Changing to a Shared Leadership Model
This week, Behind the Message returns to discuss Westside's new approach to leadership, as Pastor Steve Mickel announces the addition of 2 senior pastors. Our panel discusses.
Walking in the Dark with Steve Mickel
On this first episode of season 3, Pastor Steve Mickel announces the release of his book, Walking in the Dark: Trusting God when Life Happens. "I hope what I believe is right, like when Jesus said, 'I go to prepare a place for you where you can be with me.' I hope he was telling me the truth, not just for me but for [my son] Chase... The sun’s going to rise again. Not just on that day when Jesus comes back and we all get to experience His presence, but it’s going to rise on this day... There could still be a best day ever for me, without Chase. Why not? That’s who God is. He does want to produce beauty out of ashes." - Steve Mickel
On Vulnerability : How much is too much? With Steve Mickel
Steve Mickel joins the live podcast to discuss being known for vulnerability and when it can cross over into over sharing.
On the New Creation - A Conversation with Pastor Seth Waters
Westside's new church plant will be pastored by Seth Waters. Seth joins the podcast to discuss his message on our new identity in Christ.
The Unhurried Soul : Don't Run on Empty
We look at ways to connect ourselves to the relationships and activities that fuel the soul. When we allow our souls to run on empty, we have little to offer those around us.
The Unhurried Soul : Soul health starts from a place of Rest with Steve Mickel
In his book, Soul Keeping, John Ortberg says that the key to a healthy soul is first to "ruthlessly eliminate hurry from your life". We sit down with Pastor Steve Mickel to discuss the hectic rhythms of life and how we can find a place of rest for our souls.
I really like this. As a communicator it’s tough to get all the context in a talk in a short amount of time. The story and victories behind what we learn and share are so vital to other people process as much as it is ours. I think that this podcast takes the simple message and breaks it down into a deep more relatable experience. Well done Westside gang. Set the bar yet again.
Love this idea of going deeper and talking broader than possible in a Sunday morning message. Excited to listen in from our seat in East Africa!
