Things Not To Say To Your Pastor (159)

May 16, 2023

In Episode 159, we talk about the ten things you should avoid saying to your pastor. With a touch of humor and kindness, we are reminded that pastors are humans too, with vulnerabilities and insecurities. Understanding this is crucial to building stronger relationships within our faith communities.

From questioning sermon similarities to comparing churches and asking about specific ministries, we are encouraged to appreciate the unique elements present in every sermon, recognize the distinctiveness of our churches, and understand the limitations faced by each congregation. 

Tune in now, and let’s go bigger, better, and deeper!
