Pastors are planning, preparing, and preaching in isolation. It is not that they don’t have trusted friends and family around them – they do. The isolation they are facing is in their own ministry where they play multiple positions, fill multiple roles, and feel they do not have anyone else to share the burden of preaching and teaching with. The Preaching Through podcast is the conversation that takes place when pastors come together to encourage one another to grow, challenging each other’s ability to communicate the Gospel. Each episode gives you a seat table with ministry leaders exploring how to plan and prepare to preach through topics, books, and subjects that are central to following Jesus in 21st Century America.

From Gresham ,

Insightful, Clear, Leadership Wisdom

These guys speak directly to the questions that key leaders in the church are actually asking. They are insightful, sharing from many years of leadership. I often have lightbulbs come on listening.

Perfectly Practical

Dave and Luke are two guys I’d actually like to hang out and talk about ministry with.

They give language and vocab to things I think about; I’ve shared this show with lots of pastors and encouraged them to listen.

Humble & Real Hosts

Great podcast - love hearing leaders that take ministry seriously, but not themselves. Great to see Luke Simmons move from interviewer on the ‘King and Culture’ podcast to interviewee here. Excited to hear future episodes.
