You Have a Story to Share (w/ Joe Thompson) - Episode 41


Every pastor has a story to share. No matter the size of their church. That's a belief of ours and is one of the core reasons we love supporting church leaders. There are so many crucial, powerful things happening every day in small and mid-size churches that go unnoticed and unseen.

Joe Thompson is the Lead Pastor at Smithfield Christian Church in Smithfield, VA. We've been connected to him for a while and love his genuine heart and his passion for ministry.

We're partnering with Joe on an upcoming project where we'll be sharing the stories of pastors across the country. So we're excited to introduce you to him today, talk about the inspiration behind this project, and share some key insights he's taken away from some of the conversations he's been hosting.

You have a story to share. Listen in!
