Dave Jacobs from SmallChurchPastor.com joins me to talk about church growth - the things we've been told - and the things we should reconsider.
Dave's book, Second Thoughts - 100 Things Small Church Pastors Should Reconsider, is filled with encouragement for pastors of ordinary sized churches. We talk about only one, #75 - Reconsider what the church growth experts have told you.
Also, if you want to experience pastoral coaching, Dave is offering (4) four 45-minute coaching sessions for FREE. This is his gift and ministry to pastors. Four sessions with Dave will give you ample opportunity to discern whether having a pastoral coach is for you.
If you benefit, this could be something that your church helps you afford, even though Dave's coaching is way too cheap! I tell him he needs to raise the amount he charges pastors, but he wants to keep it affordable for small church pastors.
Email Dave at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell him Jeff sent you! He routinely offers one free 45-minute call, but for my listeners he's offering four! :-)
