In our last episode, Matt mentioned his block schedule that protected his study time. We had a listener ask us if we could elaborate on how we try to manage our time in the ministry so that we can be effective and efficient. So we thought we would delve into the subject of pastoral time management.

How do you manage your time? What system or tools work for you? Share them with us!

Welcome to a new episode of the Front Pew! It's been a while, but we are back and excited to be recording again. We are changing things up a bit in the hope that this podcast would serve you well as a pastor, or someone who knows a pastor.

In this episode we discuss how to navigate criticism. Every pastor has to face it, but we believe God is able to use it for our good and to enable us to be better pastors and shepherds.
