Great Content!

I’ve always been a fan of Slingshot and the ways they’ve approached staffing in the local church. Their focus on health and fit have no doubt helped many churches make the right hires that set them up for long term success. I’m super stoked / encouraged that they’re branching out into the podcasting world, taking the knowledge they’ve learned and using it to continue helping leaders and organizations thrive by strategically thinking about how to lead and grow. Great show.
