This was a fun one. We recently asked some of our listeners to share with us who has been most helpful to them in navigating COVID-19. We got quite a few responses for our guest today!
Ryan Wakefield spent years as the Creative Director at James River Church, and has since founded Church Marketing University, a hub of training and resources to help churches utilize new methods to share the message of Jesus. His energy and passion for churches is contagious, and we had such a blast getting to connect with him on the podcast.
In addition to some fun stories about vacations and football, Ryan shares some honest insights for leaders to consider coming out of COVID-19. What strategies should we hold on to that we learned during this time? If he was a small-church pastor today, what is the one thing he would do to ensure future effectiveness? And a whole lot more...
Listen in! This is a practical, honest, and inspirational conversation.
