For the last few years I've spent a lot of time and energy looking at the path of ministry leadership, especially as we see the transition from Boomers to Millennials as the dominant force. We're seeing a large number of Millennials (under 40) stepping into ministry leadership roles.
The reality is that while our seminaries are strong and we live in a golden age of publishing, we can always be sharpened. Many of us in leadership are engaged on social media, podcasting, networking with our colleagues, and more. We know we need to be better, sharper, trained more, so we can be the servant leaders God has called us to be.
If we want to see our churches continue to thrive in faithfulness and effectiveness, it's essential we pour into our younger leaders--those who are serving in ministry leadership and those who are in Bible college or seminary.
That's where the podcast comes in. Starting on March 1, every week I'll be releasing a podcast designed for those of you under 40 who are serving in ministry. I want the conversation to be fun, encouraging, and practical. Join us on Twitter. You'll be able to find the podcast on iTunes and Google Play.
For a preview, check out "Episode 0" on getting off to a good start in ministry.
