    Biblical Wealth and a Good Reputation | Kris Bennett

    Biblical Wealth and a Good Reputation | Kris Bennett

    This week I got to talk to a long time friend I've kept in touch with over the years since we both attended Bible School, albeit having both gone on way different albeit similar journeys.

    Kris Bennett was the one who answered the phone when I called FIRE School of Ministry in the summer of 2001 regarding the status of my application to the school. 

    After all these years we're finally having a recorded conversation and discussing things he doesn't talk much about on his own podcast, The Storage Investor Show.

    In this episode we discuss:

    Imposter Syndrome and the various ways we've both faced it in our lives, education and businesses. What barrier to entry one might have in fulfilling their call; for one person that might be higher education, for another specific vocational skills The challenges of fund raising vs tentmaking and freelancing Wealth and a good reputation as outlined in the book of Proverbs The rewards of diligence in both ministry and in businesss. If you can solve someone's "bleeding neck problem", you can get paid well and never need to worry ever gain about providing for your family if you possess such skills.
    ...among quite a few other things.

    Why Are So Many Christian Authors Afraid of Marketing? | J.D. King

    Why Are So Many Christian Authors Afraid of Marketing? | J.D. King

    We finally have a new interview on the podcast, and it's with someone I would have had on the show earlier had I actually been podcasting in the last three years. 
    Welcome J.D. King. 
    This show is still called 'fire on your head', and we're all about spreading the fire of the Gospel to as many as we can with our sphere of influence and with our resources and to teach and train disciples to do the same.
    So how come so many Christians who would claim to have the same type of goal, trip up on the idea of doing anything to make sure people even know about the message God has birthed in them?

    The Power of His Reign: An Easy Introduction to Amillennialism by Jonathan Ammon

    Should Church Leaders Write a Book? | Church Solutions guest appearance

    Should Church Leaders Write a Book? | Church Solutions guest appearance

    This week I was a guest on a podcast geared toward pastors and the tech people who work with churches and ministries.

    Talk about a niche audience. 

    Again, KNOW YOUR AUDIENCE ;) 
    I was invited to talk about book writing and whether it would behoove pastors to create a book since most of them are already crafting weekly messages for a local audience, so why not a broader one through their writing?

    We also discussed,
    Who should write a book (and why)? What about audio books, should they be included? What are the benefits of having your own book? Can you actually make a living from your book? You can check out my episode of The Church Solutions Podcast with Phil Thompson and Steve Lacy wherever you get your podcasts.
    The books I mentioned and said I'd link to in the show notes:
    Restoring You: Becoming The Masterpiece God Created You To Be by Kathryn Hughey Weight... That's Not All!: Give Up Dieting & Food Behavior Gimmicks and Buy Into Your Healing & Freedom in Christ Instead by Lesli Bryan And of course, reach out to me if you've got a message burning inside you to release to the world but need my help putting it into a book.
    Write Your Book!
