Is There Still Hope for the Established Church?

Dr Sam Rainer joins us this week for a special episode where we ask him all about his ministries - Church Answers, EST. - For the Established Church Podcast, and his newest book, "The Church Revitalization Checklist". We had so much to talk about that we had to call in help! Guest host, Brandon Knight also joined us this episode to ask Dr Rainer some about Church Administration. Brandon is a seminary student with his own podcast, "My Seminary Life" where he discusses what he's been learning in seminary and recently he just finished a class on Church administration. We all laugh and have a good time while also discussing the deep ideas of the importance of established Churches and organization in ministry. Maybe we shouldn't "just preach the Gospel"; maybe we should also have accountability and organization?

Offering Plate

We may not be huge fans of the pressure that goes along with a literal offering plate, but we do hope you will consider giving to our ministry so we can afford to continue our work to educate and unite the Church!
