    EP 151: How To Protect Your Joy From A Virus

    EP 151: How To Protect Your Joy From A Virus

    The current coronavirus crisis has changed how we do church. In many cases, this pandemic threatens to take our joy away, as churches are prevented from meeting. Today, let's talk about real joy and how to protect ourselves from people and circumstances that steal it.
    During the podcast, I mentioned two ways to keep in touch during the pandemic. My personal Facebook page is where I will be checking in each day. The title is Stream of Consciousness and will feature any variety of topics, depending on what interests me at the moment.
    The second Facebook page will be primarily focused on ministry and is designed for pastors and church leaders. The topics will be ministry centered and be more sporadic in frequency. Just like the page, and you will be notified when I am broadcasting.

    EP 150: Would You Rather Be Famous In Heaven Or On Earth?

    EP 150: Would You Rather Be Famous In Heaven Or On Earth?

    The need for affirmation from peers and the public is much stronger than any of us realize. That drive can easily derail God's will and purpose for our lives and ministry. During today's podcast, I speak about our need for acceptance weighed against God's mandate for us to fulfill His will. Can you truthfully say that your motivations are Kingdom-driven? You might be surprised by what you learn!
    Connect with the ministry resources I mentioned at the end of the podcast here.

    EP 149: I Guarantee This Formula Will Work! (Sometimes...)

    The Bible contains many formulas, each designed to advance His Kingdom. Many popular preachers and teachers guarantee results will materialize if anyone follows their teaching. Is that true? Why do some formulas work for some and not others?

    EP 148: How To Talk Yourself Into (Or Out Of) Defeat

    EP 148: How To Talk Yourself Into (Or Out Of) Defeat

    The scriptures place a strong emphasis on the words we speak and how they change both our present and future destiny. Leaders preach this, but do we apply it to ourselves? Ministers can talk themselves into defeat by practicing self-defeating behaviors. On today's podcast, I offer some easy solutions for changing your daily behavior to ensure success.
    During today's podcast, I offered a free download to help you make important personal changes. 
    I also referenced a fantastic book called Natural Church Development that I highly recommend.

Butt naked

I have listened to quite a few of Casey’s podcasts and have really enjoyed them. He is honest about his struggles and gives great tools of wisdom when it comes to reaching a lost and lonely generation. I highly recommend giving your ear for a few minutes. Sometimes as church members/ leaders we forget how to love the unlovely and this podcast helps with that.

Women, Apostles, and Other Taboos

So grateful for your recent podcasts on women pastors and on apostles. Traditions serve no purpose if they steer us away from Christ and His plans for/love of the Church. Thanks for rattlin' the cages.
