What's one thing you can do today that will help your pastor? Most people in the pew (or the folding chair) have no idea the pressures a pastor faces. On Chris Fabry Live, two guests deal with the realities of ministry today. Our correspondent to the pastorate returns, Dr. John Koessler, and he'll be joined by author and President of Strategic Renewal, Daniel Henderson. Don't miss the challenge and encouragement on Chris Fabry Live.
