    What happens when you’re killing it in ministry, but your marriage is failing?

    In this episode of the Slingshot Group Podcast, David, Vance, and Keith talk about the personal challenges of being married while in vocational ministry. Today, overwhelming, pastors and faith leaders say that ministry has negatively affected their marriage and family. But, does marriage HAVE to become the enemy of ministry? Can one complement the other? Those are the questions David explores with our guest, Albert Tate. Albert serves as the founding pastor of Fellowship Church—one of the fastest-growing multiethnic churches in the United States. Links for episode:Alberttate.comAlbert Tate PodcastIMPROVLeadership

Always Dead On

There has yet to be an episode I have listened to that missed the mark on the topic. The Slingshot Group consistently offers great content—some of which I have been able to put into to practice in more than one ministry setting. It’s good stuff. Every time I listen, I always end up sharing!

The right amount of relationship and challenge

Every episode of this podcast is a direct reflection of the people who help make Slingshot Group happen: high relational connect with high Kingdom-sized challenge. You definitely want to subscribe.

Compelling & Challenging

Slingshot brings great diversity to the podcast world with it’s topics, content, hosts, and guests. The material and points of application speak to and reach a multigenerational audience that currently fill ministry/non-profit positions all over. I’ve sent multiple episodes to several people in all sorts of vocations and positions with great feedback each time. Great work from great people.
