7 Habits of Unproductive Pastors | PP58

So what makes a ministry leader unproductive? It might be a little different than you expect. Today we are talking about the habits of unproductive pastors. Front Matter Our new interview format is going great! I’ve heard great things from folks with last week’s episode with Dave Shrein. Make sure you check it out. This week I have spent PLENTY of time listening to Dan Carlin’s podcast Hardcore History. His recent series entitled “King of Kings” is a fascinating look into the world of the ancient near east. For anyone who teaches the Bible, it would be a great resource to utilize. We have had some great iTunes feedback. I want to thank these reviewers for their support of the show. If you haven’t, please review the Productive Pastor on iTunes. You can do so right here. 7 Habits of Unproductive Pastors They Aren’t Incarnated Think about John 1:14 at what it means for Jesus to dwell among us. That means we have to be embodying the dwelling of Jesus in the places we are called to and the people we are called to lead. It can be tough sometimes, but not leading from the standpoint of love can be pretty gnarly. They Don’t Know What They Are Doing As leaders, we need future focus. This is about building a planned strategic schedule. I’ve done an entire episode on this idea. Building a Priority Based Schedule | PP3 They Can’t Differentiate Between Urgent and Important There is a huge difference between what’s urgent and what’s important. We can fill our life with the urgent and never touch the important!...

5 Podcast Episodes | 8.12.16

Every week I curate a list of 5 great podcast episodes. This week is focused on great easy-to-listen educational and historical content. King of Kings III | Hardcore History with Dan Carlin 7.7.16 Ok. This is the podcast of podcasts. Episodes of Hardcore History are only released every 4-6 months. The newest episode came out this week and it clocks in at over 5 hrs. I spent most of my driving time this week listening to it. I’ve heard the hoopla about Carlin and this podcast before and I can now say I’ve totally drank the kool-aid. Klondike Big Inch and Land Promotion | Stuff You Missed in History Class 7.30.14 I share this podcast pretty often, but that’s because they have a huge catalog and I find it perfect for longer drives. I love how they find fantastical events from the past and explain them. This one is all about a cereal company doing a land giveaway in Gold territory. Odin-In the Land of the Blind | Myths and Legends 7.26.16 The Myths and Legends podcast broke onto the scene last year. It quickly rose to the top of iTunes charts. For folks into fables and tall tales of yore, it’s downright perfect. The creator goes in and out of a Viking kick. This is a great episode. Route Talk | Serial  Serial was the podcast that changed everything. This summer, the focus of season 1 Adnan Syed was able to get his court case reopened. Many people believe this is because of the focus the podcast put on his nearly 20-year-old conviction. For folks who doubt the...
