The Productive Pastor

Welcome to season 5 of the Productive Pastor! 

I'm back from my December break and I can't wait to see what 2017 will look like for you and your ministry...and the podcast. I'm excited about the podcast. In this episode I am going to share some self-reflection, team reflection, and resources to help you plan a fantastic 2017 in ministry. 

Front Matter

The Tip Jar Podcast: My friend Cody has started a fantastic new podcast dedicated to worship musicians. He is having conversations with some of the biggest guitar players, drummers and technicians of your favorite worship bands/leaders. It is a super entertaining podcast. 

The Productive Pastor Community: We have an incredible group of folks interacting in the Productive Pastor Community on Facebook. It's a private group, so we can have great ministry focused conversations about productivity and strategic ministry in an environment full of folks that speak the same language! One of my deeper commitments in 2017 is to this group. Come be part.
