Hey...it's a new episode of the Front Pew, a podcast for pastors, by pastors! Really, it is for anyone, and Ben isn't really a pastor anymore. Anyway, thanks for downloading and listening!

We are beginning a new series on the work of the pastor. This week we thought we would talk about the one thing that takes up the most time in the life of a pastor--preaching. What is it? Why does it matter? How do we do it?

We hope that this little podcast is an encouragement to you, whether you are a lead pastor, staff pastor, or church member. Be sure to subscribe on iTunes, write a review and share us with your friends!

Also, we would love to hear from you! Send us an email at frontpew1@gmail.com, a tweet @thefrontpew, or a comment on our Facebook page. Thanks again for listening!

Welcome to another episode of the Front Pew! We have been spending the month of January talking about some issues that pastors are often hesitant to talk about. Today we discuss discouragement in ministry. Every pastor knows what it feels like to be discouraged in their ministry, to wonder if maybe they need to find another place to serve, and to feel like quitting altogether. It doesn't matter if you are in a big or small church, if you are the lead pastor or staff member, or if you are new to ministry or a seasoned veteran. It hits us all.

In this episode we discuss our own areas of discouragement, and talk about how to manage it and find encouragement. We hope that this episode will help pastor and people alike!

We really appreciate your support of this podcast, and it feels as if our listeners are our friends! Please connect with us via email (frontpew1@gmail.com), Twitter (@thefrontpew) or on our Facebook page.

Welcome to a new episode of the Front Pew! Thanks for listening! This week we are continuing to talk about some things that pastors avoid talking about. One thing that we are too silent about concerns our marriages, particularly when we are struggling to be a good husband. It happens to all of us, whether we want to admit it or not. Why is this, and what can we do about it?

We hope that our little podcast is an encouragement to you, and that in some ways it is helpful to your life and ministry. If after listening to this episode you have some specific questions for us, feel free to contact us at frontpew1@gmail.com and we will try our best to answer your questions!

Welcome to a new episode of the Front Pew! During the month of January we want to talk about some things that pastors rarely talk about, and we thought we would kick it off by talking about "ministerial jealousy." Even though it is hard for us to admit, we are often jealous of other ministers or ministries. Why are we like this, and how do we overcome it? That is the subject of today's podcast.

We want to say congratulations to Grant Van Brimmer for winning the Front Pew mug. It will be an honor to have you drink hot coffee from our mug! Haymen!

We really do appreciate our listeners. Be sure to stay in contact with us either through email (frontpew1@gmail.com), Twitter (@thefrontpew) or on our Facebook page.

Welcome to 2018! We are happy to celebrate with you here on the Front Pew. Thanks for listening to this new episode! Today, Ben and Chris look back and look forward as they share the events of 2017 that they believe will have the most impact on believers in the new year, as well as discuss one helpful tip that they believe can be beneficial moving forward.

We are so appreciative of our listeners and supporters. When we started this podcast, we hoped that it would be an encouragement to those who not only serve in pastoral roles in the church, but also those laymen and women who faithful support and serve in their local church. We feel like our listeners have become our friends, and we are excited to continue growing together in this next year.

With that said, we are working on topics for 2018. Send us an email at frontpew1@gmail.com, or contact us on Twitter (@thefrontpew) or drop us a line on our Facebook page and share some topic ideas with us.
