Married and Replanting Episode 1: Where We Were and Where We Are Now

What goes through a person’s mind when they begin to contemplate taking a new job? There are generally any number of questions that rise up like:

“What will be my schedule?”

“How much will I be getting paid?”

“What will be my roles and responsibilities?”

Let me be honest with you, these are very similar questions that are asked when contemplating going into a ministry position. Even more so when diving head first into a church replanting or revitalization process.

In this weeks episode of Married and Replanting Dusty and I talk about what we were both thinking and praying over when we first made the decision to take on this new assignment. We talk initial thoughts, developing a support system, navigating less than ideal circumstances, and even dive into some of our own behind the scenes challenges we were facing at the beginning of the journey.

Take a listen.

It’s no secret that God created rest for humanity and He fully expects us to take the time we need to recharge in order to be the best we can be for the people we are called to serve. The unfortunate problem that we often run into in ministry, and especially in a replant and revitalization situation, is that we find ourselves burning the candle at both ends. This week Dusty and Elizabeth talk about the importance of scheduling in time to rest and recharge not only for the sake of the ministry but also for the sake of the marriage.  Resources mentioned in today’s episode:On Being A Pastor: Understanding Our Calling and Workhttps://tinyurl.com/y5et79fp Follow us on all our social media platforms to be sure you never miss a new episode.Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MarriedandReplantingTwitter: https://twitter.com/RpodcastM
