Unburdened: It’s Not What You Might Think

Posted by | For Pastors, Personal Life, Resources for Pastors | No Comments

By Michael Todd Wilson “Come . . . all who are . . . burdened. . . . my burden is light.” This is a very different kind of unburdening than we’d initially think and, on brief reflection, different than we might even want.

Six Main Traits of Preacher Eater Churches

Posted by | For Pastors, Latest Blog | No Comments

By Thom Rainer Preacher eater churches? I had never heard the term until I became a pastor. While I was serving as a pastor at a church, a search committee representative from another church called me. She wanted to know if I would prayerfully consider coming to her church. Immediately after the call, I got on the phone with a friend who served as pastor at another church in the same town. What did he know about the other church…
