Married and Replanting Ep. 003: What Are We Doing? A Discussion with the Bueermans

This week was SO much fun to record. This week Dusty and I sat down with some friends and fellow church replanters, Kyle and Michelle Bueerman. Kyle and Michelle have been “in the trenches” of church revitalization for the majority of their ministry journey and are a bit further along the road than we are.

We discuss how they got to where they are today, what the thought processes are going into a replant situation and how to maintain some sense of normalcy for the ministry family while living life “in the fishbowl” with all they eyes on you all the time.

We laugh a lot throughout this episode and I hope you will too!

Kyle Bueerman is the author of They Devoted Themselves: What Churches in the 21st Century Can Learn from the Church in the First Century and co-author of Replanting Rural Churches: God’s Plan and Call for the Middle of Nowhere.

You can also hear him weekly on Not Another Baptist Podcast that he co-hosts with Matt Henslee, Pastor of Mayhill Baptist Church.

I hope you enjoy this weeks episode and come on back Friday to learn about two of my most favorite kitchen hacks currently!

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
