Helpful

This is a helpful podcast for Christian leaders in whatever context. Greatly appreciated the conversation with Dr. Russell Moore.

Van Bebber ,

Great podcast for pastors, lay leaders, and every church member

Dr. Smith provides great scriptural insight in a dynamic and challenging way. Great podcast to listen to and be challenged with what it means to be a a leader according to Scripture. Important podcast for one to listen to if they want to grow as a leader.
