Meet the Hosts

Leading a church can be difficult. We help navigate difficult topics, identify new shifts in church ministry, and engage with other pastors. 

We believe most pastors are not fully equipped to handle every aspect of leading their congregation. The Thriving in Ministry Podcast is one way we help encourage and equip other church leaders for ministry today.
