Episode 138: GW Pastoral Leadership Institute

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

The God Whisperers venture into the treacherous waters of “pastoral leadership” with Rev. Tom Brashears.  Tom delivers on the left-handed side of pastoring and how to organize a congregation without turning it into an organized religion or a religion of organization or anything resembling something Rick Warren would do.  In addition we get some ex-ELCA insights along with a little Snacktime.  More GW madness.
