Our pastors today are overworked - preparing a sermon, counseling the flock, visiting the sick. God calls us to join in service, not just to sit back and wait to be served. Ed Stetzer talks with Micah Fries and Jeremy Maxfield about God's mission of raising disciples in the church.
Micah Fries is the Senior Pastor of Brainerd Baptist Church in Chattanooga. Prior to serving at Brainerd, he worked for LifeWay Christian Resources, served as a Senior Pastor in Missouri, as an international church planter in Burkina Faso, West Africa, and as a Youth Director in Dothan, Alabama.
Jeremy Maxfield is a writer and consultant living near Chattanooga. He's developed content for key leaders and organizations throughout the country and has also led in a variety of pastoral contexts—like youth ministry for a church plant, volunteer and bi-vocational roles for mid-sized churches, and lead team pastor of discipleship for a large multi-campus church.
Ed Stetzer wears a lot of hats—author, speaker, researcher, pastor, church planter—as he helps Christians learn to share Christ. Ed has earned two master’s degrees and two doctorates, and has written or co-written a dozen books and hundreds of articles. Now he ministers as interim pastor of The Moody Church, teaches at Wheaton College, and serves as executive director of the Billy Graham Center and a regional director of Lausanne North America. Ed and his wife, Donna, have been married more than 25 years and have three daughters.
