Ep. 9 It is all interim ministry

Ep. 9 It is all interim ministry

January 27, 2021

It is all interim ministry. As we have explored ministry trends during the 20th and 21st century and lived out the reality of being working pastors for the past 10 years, we have come to a conclusion - it is all interim ministry. A changing church and a changing world mean that we are always in between things and moving from one chapter to the next. 

Join Pastor Courtenay and Pastor Erik for a conversation about interim ministry and how all ministry is interim in the 21st century.

Er... Happy New year?

So, 2021 hasn't started out exactly as we all dreamed it would heading into Christmas. The pandemic is still raging, churches are still mostly virtual and democracy is only in a free falling crisis.

What does that mean for people of faith in 2021? What will ministry look like for the next 3 months, 6 months or 12 months?

Join Pastor Courtenay and Pastor Erik for a conversation about ministry in 2021 and what this new year might bring.

Ep 7 The Pandemic Reformation and the Post-Pandemic Church Part II

December 16, 2020

So, it has been a while. Just after recording our last episode, Pastor Erik developed a case of Bell's palsy. It took a few extra weeks to heal and be able to talk properly again, but it is good to be back. Pastor Courtenay and Pastor Erik continue their conversation about the Pandemic Reformation and the Post-Pandemic Church. We continue to talk about way the church can look to a future that has been forever changed by this pandemic, but also by the other crises facing our world. 

In Episode 7, we map out our hopes, dreams and wishes for a post-pandemic church coming through this Pandemic Reformation.
