Are skinny jeans and fog machines at the heart of your church's growth strategy? Well, who are you turning to for help? And what are the best strategies for growth? Today's show with pastor and author, Jim Cymbala of the Brooklyn Tabernacle, answers your questions. Listen in as he fans the flame to renew your calling to finish the work that you have received.
Serving as a pastor or church leader has never been easy. But recent data show a high level of fatigue and discouragement among pastors – and many are leaving the ministry. In fact, in a recent survey, Barna Research says that 38% of pastors have thought about quitting full-time ministry in the past year.
How can you as a pastor or Christian leader find renewed passion for your calling, and regular refreshment, so you aren’t serving on empty?
Today’s podcast will highlight ways to fan the flame of the calling God has placed in you, so you can continue to serve.
I’m delighted to welcome Jim Cymbala, Pastor of Brooklyn Tabernacle. Jim has been a pastor for more than 50 years, and along with leading Brooklyn Tabernacle, he has a heart for encouraging and equipping other pastors. His most recent book is Fan the Flame.
