Ministry IRL

Ministry IRL

By Patrick Weed
Dive in with us as we explore what life in ministry is truly like. We don't often get to hear from those in ministry and what they are really going through. Listen in and hear what God is teaching them as they live life in ministry. Let's share together what we know and what we are learning from God so that we might encourage each other. Join us every Friday as we talk about ministry in real life.

Episode 023 - Language
Words are important! This week on Ministry IRL we talk about language and how important it is how we communicate with each other. When it comes to ministry there are a lot of outdated words that we use, but still hold a lot of important meaning to what we believe. Talking to other generations, or even other cultures can be really difficult. Let's talk about how not only are words important, but we need to communicate well in order to represent Jesus well.

Episode 021 - Vacation while doing ministry
It’s not easy to disconnect while doing ministry for multiple different reasons. On this episode we talk about how taking a break and disconnecting can be hard for reasons that you might not expect. Taking a vacation from what you enjoy doing is a bit more of a discipline than necessarily a desire.

As we all work through what it means to be stuck at home and how to get through it. Many of us are also talking about what life and ministry will look like afterward when we all come back to church.
