The "Guerrilla Pastors" is a podcast chronicling young ministers shifting from "traditional" church ministry to a subversive pastoral presence. Instead of attraction models hinging on cults of personalities we focus on humbler approaches founded on neighborhood presence. Forsaking church growth metrics we will focus instead on fostering authentic relationships. Join us as we discuss our journey through deconstruction to reconstructing a Guerrilla Pastoral approach that emphasizes a broad kingdom imagination, practices a generous orthodoxy and celebrates a necessarily diverse praxis.

    [011] Compositional Ministry

    [011] Compositional Ministry

    Part two of our interview of Amanda rounds up a discussion of the work she is doing. We also share our take on why it is a celebration of a diverse praxis. The subject matter of naming sexual assault and human trafficking in the bible is subversive in its own right, but how Amanda is partnering with churches to teach these subjects makes all the more “guerrilla” in nature.

    [010] Part of the Problem

    We continue on this episode with sharing examples of pastors doing subversive ministry. This time we interview Amanda Montgomery who is in the midst of writing a book to help churches become advocates for those who have experienced human trafficking and sexual assault. Her work gives insight into how Guerrilla Pastors and traditional churches may mutually benefit from the relationships they have with one another.
