The Faith and Race Podcast is designed to help predominately white churches host constructive dialogue about faith, race and the church. Every episode has a specific focus to help us intentionally think about the intersection of history, institutions, scripture, prayer, race and justice. The audio recordings bring diverse insights and experiences into churches, homes and hearts across Missouri and beyond. Contact Rev. Sharon Williams with additional questions.
Rising partisanship in our country has made finding common ground difficult. A recent study found that Methodism is one of America’s most politically divided denominations, with both congregants and their pastors roughly split between the Democratic and Republican Parties. This makes the work of a pastor – a spiritual leader to everyone in their pews – hard. Navigating those tensions and modeling new ways of remaining in relationship with those we disagree is not for the weak of heart. Pastoring in Partisan Times seeks to gain insight into pastoring purple in red and blue churches.
The Learn + Lead Podcast features pastors, church planters and lay leaders from churches of all sizes who share their stories of growth and provide tools that you can use in your congregation. With topics such as starting new small groups, upping your social media game, narrative budgeting, how to lead a recovery ministry and many more, there is something to help churches of all sizes to learn more and lead well.
NextGen Conversations is a podcast that seeks to empower children’s, family, youth and college-aged leaders to create dynamic, Christ-centered ministries. Local church leaders often don’t have the time, energy or resources required to reshape a nextgen program. Every episode features a conversation with a ministry leader and covers innovative solutions to common problems faced in churches today. We want to give you practical steps to transform the way you do ministry. It’s time to get in on the conversation!
