Each 15-minute podcast provides real help from Casey Sabella, a pastor who has proven these principles through more than four decades of ministry.
EP 230: Is Your Preaching Missing The Target?
Bible Schools, seminaries, and denominational meetings spend enormous amounts of time helping future ministers preach well. The focus is doctrine, presentation, and effectiveness, but something basic is often missing. Ministers spend on average eight hours preparing sermons, but many fail to make an impact. Have we been missing the target by failing to recognize something obvious to our hearers? Join me today for an insightful podcast.
EP 229: Are You A Human Being Or A Human Doing?
Most of us have preached or used this phrase in our ministry, but have we ever turned the spotlight toward our vocation? Tragically, most pastors evaluate themselves solely based on performance, using comparison with others as the chief standard. As a result, most pastors live emotionally depleted lives, running from pillar to post to prove their self-worth. Today, we take a step back to ask a few simple questions to ensure the health of our souls.
EP 228: EP 228: Have You Been To The Cross Lately?
The cross is a message pastors preach in thousands of churches throughout the world each week, but what does the cross mean in real-time? Paul said that he lived a crucified life and, through that experience, preached the gospel. What does it mean to live a crucified life, and how does that impact a pastor's life and ministry?
EP 227: Is That A Light At The End Of The Tunnel Or An Oncoming Train?
Pastors face problems, challenges, and trials of their faith each day. It is frustrating when many do not get resolved and pile one on top of another. Have you ever reached the breaking point and, seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, learned that it is yet another trial heading your way? Welcome to the club! Today, I share a biblical yet straightforward strategy for turning trials into triumphs, and the secret is hidden in plain sight. Join me! Connect with me at @email@example.com.

EP 226: Are You Casting Your Pearls Before Swine?
Whether you realize it or not, you have accumulated pearls throughout your time as a gospel minister. These pearls have value, but are you sharing them with people who don't appreciate them? Jesus' warning is particularly appropriate for those in ministry who give so much of our time, only to be devalued by those who should know better. I speak today about your pearls and how to avoid pigs!

EP 225: Why Pastors Are Some Of The Most Unforgiving People On The Planet
Unforgiveness is challenging - especially when people hurt or slander our reputations. Pastors are no different when it comes to releasing those who have hurt them. Today, I share a universal problem that nearly every pastor faces in day-to-day ministry with respect to forgiveness. I hope you can join us! During the podcast, I share a free resource for any leader who wants to explore the biblical gift of prophecy. Many seem to misunderstand how this gift is designed to benefit the church, and some misuse it all together.
Excellent presentation rife with application and apt anecdotal illustrations. Sharpen your vision ax for effective chopping of dead wood. Good stuff.
Pastor Jan Nel;
Casey is a no nonsense man of God with a lion’s heart for the ministry and those who serve in it. I have had the privilege of spending many hours with Casey as a friend. He never changes and lives what he teaches. You need to hear what he has to say and pass it on to others.
Great show for anyone in ministry! Love the guests and topics Casey brings on.
