Hour 1: Returning Thanks: A Prepared Devotional Thought with Pastor Wade Walton

We welcome Pastor Wade Walton from Grandview Church into the studio. Pastor Wade expounds on Luke 17, in a lesson he has titled “Returning Thanks.” As we move on from that day we set aside to give thanks, don’t miss this encouragement to continually return to give thanks at all times and in all seasons.


Hour 2: Pastors and the Great Resignation: A Conversation with Joe Jensen

The number of Pastors that are considering a new career path has grown by close to 10 percent since the start of 2021. Barna is out with new numbers that reveal Pastors are not immune to the mental health issues and strain from the pandemic that has caused many to seriously consider leaving the pastorate. Joe Jensen, Vice President of Church Engagement of Barna Group and former pastor, discusses what new research is showing and how congregations can step up support for our Shepherds.
