church leadership pastors pastors' chat

In our series, Politics in the Church, we’ve seen that church is often not a safe place for pastors. Stepping into the role of church leader can be like stepping into a hurricane. One of the most dangerous things for a pastor is to be naive about that. Join Steve as he talks with Michael Osborne about his new book, ‘Surviving Ministry: How to Weather the Storms of Church Leadership.’

church leadership pastors pastors' chat

Formal places of power are often not the real places of power. Sometimes the little old lady teaching the Bible study can have more influence in the church than all the elders and deacons combined. A lot of pastors get into trouble when they don’t recognize these pockets of power. Listen for help with identifying pockets of power and how to deal with them. Don’t wait until it’s too late.

Join John Freeman on SBE for a discussion about the spectrum of violence the LGBT community has endured. Instead of being on that spectrum, what if conservative Christians left our sanctuaries to love and serve the LGBT community in theirs? Wouldn’t that look a lot like Jesus being a safe place for all of us?

church leadership pastors pastors' chat pastors' wives

In our series, Politics in the Church, Steve has been helping pastors deal with power struggles in their congregations. We’ve seen that church is not a safe place for pastors unless they make it a safe place. But what happens when the uptight, angry, vocal minority in a church wins the battle and forces a good pastor and his family out?

church leadership pastors pastors' chat

Christian subculture would have us believe that Jesus died to make us nice. Sure there’s the fruit of the Spirit, but being nice is something different. Being nice will cut the legs off of Christian boldness and keep truth from being spoken. Nice pastors will be eaten alive. Join Steve Brown as he chats with pastors Kevin Labby and Zach Van Dyke about the need for pastors to develop a mean streak.
