Best church leader podcast

In my opinion, this is the best wholistic church leader podcast. It touches leadership, theology, issues of the day, and so much more. It’s also done in a way that is encouraging and refreshing to the soul. It’s a real gift to the local church. Thank you.

Essential Church—Be Merciful to those who doubt

Loved this concept when you encounter people struggling with their faith...let’s go to Jesus. What do you think of Him? And there is a positive response...well I think He’s great. Hang onto that...let’s go with that for a little bit. That’s the central part of our faith, not the side issues that can derail us. How that would change every conversation with someone struggling and show love and mercy.

Essential Church

Today’s interview with Pastor Ray Johnston was a thrill for me. I’m in the military and have twice been stationed near Sacramento. On both occasions, my family and I attended Bayside Church. Previously, when stationed in Colorado, I also attended New Life. Needless to say, I was ecstatic to see two churches that have poured so much into my family connect with each other. Keep up the great podcast!
