Chris is still out of the country, but he found some time to talk with Ben about a few things pastors should consider when talking to a search committee. There are some red flags to look out for in this process, but does that mean the door is closed?

Welcome to a new episode of the Front Pew! This week we are excited to welcome Ben back to Haymen studios as we answer a question from a listener: "How can a pastor of an established church lead his people to embrace church planting?" Ben is the expert on all things related to church planting, and offers some really good insight.

In this episode we are answering a couple of questions that we have received from our listeners concerning the call to ministry. This episode is a little different...Chris is on the road, headed to Atlanta to watch a Braves game with his pastor friend Doug. So, be warned, the sound isn't that great.

Welcome to another episode of the Front Pew podcast! This week, Griggs and the Capper talk about a tweet from Jonathan Merritt which indicates that the future of Christianity could be mystic. Apparently, the younger generation is more interested in connecting to the Divine through personal experiences, and less interested in propositional truth.

Howdy friends...welcome to a new episode of the Front Pew podcast! In this episode, Ben and Chris discuss an important but often neglected subject among pastor: what do you do if you sense God has called you to a new place of ministry, and your family (wife, kids, parents) are quite on board with it? 

 

We really do appreciate you listening in, and be sure to subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, leave us a written review, and share us with your friends!

 

You can connect with us through email (frontpew1@gmail.com), Twitter (@thefrontpew) or vox us (cgriggs, mattcapps). We would love to hear from you! Let us know if there are any questions, issues or topics you would like us to chat about.

We think it is good and wise to be affiliated with a denomination or network. In this episode, Chris and the Capper talk about the benefits they have enjoyed being a part of the SBC, which is having its annual meeting in Birmingham this week.

 

If you are at the convention, find the Capper and say hello! You can also send us an email (frontpew1@gmail.com) or tweet at us (@thefrontpew). We also have a Facebook page that the Capper has failed to keep up with. Let us know what we can talk about on the show that would be beneficial to you.

Thanks for listening! How should pastors approach difficult or controversial social issues in their preaching and teaching? This week we talk about abortion and how the church can model a biblical worldview concerning life to their community.

Hey...do you have a story about something that happened in ministry that seminary didn't prepare you for? We'd love to hear it!
