Sometimes in the Christian world, there seems to be tension between established churches and church planting organizations. Our guest, Tom Clark, works hard to bridge the gap between the two groups by training leaders in how to go out and share the Gospel. He shares about leadership and what qualities they look for when training others in ministry.
During the show, Tom tells stories about what God is up to in the ministry, as well as how training looks for different types of people. His words bring both encouragement and conviction as he challenges us to take the time to plan goals, spend time in the presence of God, and connect with those around us.
