Coaching Christian Leaders is Here - Episode 1



For the past 18 months, you have known this podcast as The Real Pastors Podcast. But now it is time to make a change. So I am rebranding the podcast. The podcast will now be called Coaching Christian Leaders.
Why are you doing this you ask?
There are a few reasons.
  1. The title Real Pastors never explained what the podcast was about. When I picked the Real Pastors, I took the idea from Real Simple Magazine. Unfortunately, what works for a magazine does not work for a podcast.
  2. Another reason is that my guest list has broadened. In addition to the pastors and missionaries I normally interview, there will be Christian authors, counselors, and leaders sharing their knowledge. For example, our first guest for Coaching Christian Leaders is Dr. Sam Serio. Dr. Serio is the is the author of Sensitive Preaching to the Sexually Hurting. This is a great interview and I am honored that he will be on the show.
  3. Third, some new doors are opening for me. Real Pastors made it possible for me to begin coaching leaders. And so it is only fitting that this podcast includes coaching.
So what will be the new format? I will continue to interview guests who have a story or an expertise that will benefit you the listener.
I will also be releasing coaching specific episodes to help leaders move forward. This will include interviews with Christian coaches and also my own coaching tips.
Thanks to all the listeners who supported the Real Pastors Podcast these past 18 months. I look forward to further serving you through Coaching Christian Leaders.
I’ll see you soon.

Discipleship Produces Leadership

Last week you evaluated your people and determined where they stood as disciples. If you haven't done this, look back at previous post for more information. Today, let's start with a question. Is your discipleship program producing laborers & leaders? Many churches offer Sunday School or Small Groups. People faithfully attend and learn. But in the end what is accomplised? A lot of information is given but little development occurs. For a discipleship progam to be successful it should be intentional as it matures disciples and builds leaders and laborers.   Right Intent - Wrong Question I am a pastor of a small church. Recently, I met with the elders, and one raised a concern. He asked, “Where are we going to find more Sunday School teachers?” No sooner did he ask that question than another asked, “And we’re not getting any younger. Where are we going to get some younger men to be elders?” These questions were sincere, but they were the wrong questions. You don’t find Sunday
