Monday Morning Pastor is a weekly podcast to encourage, equip, challenge and resource pastors and church leaders on Monday mornings. Monday is the hardest day of the week for pastors and the day pastors need the most encouragement. We want to tell and hear stories of hope and encouragement in the midst of this unique place in culture where the negative ministry stories seem to get all the airtime. Our hope is that these stories resonate with and remind pastors why we stay in the game. It is a podcast that gives pastors hope and a safe place to take off their collar, robe or tie and be people who need receive the good news on the day we feel most vulnerable. Our podcast will consist of interviews, conversations and resources from pastors and ministry leaders. We’ll have a new episode loaded up each Monday morning throughout the year (but, of course, you can listen on any day you wish). We invite you to join us and listen to the Monday Morning Pastor, where pastors can be people.

    Jeff Haanen: Work From the Inside

    Doug and Bob talk with Jeff Haanen the founder of The Denver Institute for Faith and Work. Jeff has learned that real transformation takes place “from the inside out.”  When emotional and spiritual health and the pursuit of truth gives birth to healthy work and thriving relationships, leaders are positioned to make long-lasting positive social and cultural impact.  As pastors one of the most important aspects of our calling is to help our folks in the workforce thrive and see life in that sector as mission and important to the kingdom. We hope you enjoy this episode, share it with folks in your congregation who work in the public sector.

    Stephanie Gilbert, Jessica Taylor, and Jenna Allen: Pastors’ Wives Spill the Tea

    Stephanie Gilbert, Jessica Taylor, and Jenna Allen: Pastors’ Wives Spill the Tea

    Doug has an insightful, serious, and fun conversation with Stephanie, Jessica, and Jenna three Pastors’ wives who decided to write a book about their experiences.  This important conversation brings to light the everyday good and sometimes difficult realities that pastors’ spouses go through.  If you are a pastor, you must listen.  If you are a spouse of a pastor, I sense you will learn even more than your pastor spouse.  We hope you enjoy this conversation.

    Mark Noll: C.S. Lewis

    Mark Noll: C.S. Lewis

    If we asked 100 pastors to rate their top ten authors have shaped their theology and imagination for the Gospel the most, I believe C.S. Lewis would be high on all of the lists. Mere Christianity, Narnia, The Problem of Pain, God on The Dock, Screwtape letters… the list can go on.  Doug and Bob talk with Mark Noll about C.S. Lewis and his legacy and reception in America during his early years before his rise to acclaim.

Spiritual growth and the depths of ministry

Discovering MMP during my spiritual direction journey has been transformative. Doug serves as a mentor who inspires and encourages me! The podcasts are a blessing, providing more opportunities for growth, challenging perspectives, and showcasing the love of Christ. Each episode offers insights into navigating the ups and downs of ministry, fostering a deeper appreciation for those serving in these impactful roles.

Easy to listen to and fills up the soul

I like listening to this, especially when I beat myself up as a pastor. Bob and Doug do a great job of picking you up in ministry.
