Are you contemplating leaving pastoral leadership for other areas of Christian ministry? Sam has an intimate conversation with Thom regarding the reasons behind his conscious and prayerful decision to stop preaching.

  • Overcoming the concern that I was not being obedient to my call
  • I had not been a pastor for many years, only supply and interim preaching
  • My sense of call to be a church member
  • The desire to be active in my sons’ churches
  • The volunteer ministries of which I am a part
