Podcast Episode #043

In a blog post earlier this year, I listed seven paradigm shifts facing the American church, This week, Jonathan and I expand on and explain those shifts which we are seeing on a daily basis.

  1. From senior pastor to lead pastor.
  2. From trust to trials.
  3. From denominational to quasi-denominational.
  4. From solo preacher to multiple teachers.
  5. From attractional to incarnational.
  6. From geography to affinity.
  7. From low expectation to high expectation.
