Unsuccess with Josh and David is a weekly podcast where two pastors (and many special guests) rethink success and talk about ministry in Portland, OR.
Ep. 402 - "I Hate Five Iron Frenzy"
Our guest today is Reese Roper, lead singer of Five Iron Frenzy. Reese talks with the guys about the tension of writing provocative lyrics while in the Christian music bubble, and the difficulty of speaking on behalf of multiple band members.

They talk about what it takes to be considered a “real” church and how you to have a successful youth group AND a successful children’s ministry thus serving the entire family. And they talk about other stuff too.
