Connect Hope (w/ Chuck Gordon) – Episode 232

Chuck Gordon joins Dale on this week’s 95Podcast, talking through the highs and lows of ministry life. Chuck experienced many years of successful growth as a church planter. However, there came a point when everything started heading in the wrong direction, and it seemed that his life was unraveling.

Chuck leads a ministry today called Connect Hope, which focuses on encouraging pastors, uniting ministries, and resourcing kingdom work. This is an excellent conversation about Jesus’ faithfulness in walking with us through the difficult days we all face. His passion for coming alongside ministry leaders will inspire you to do the same.

Key Takeaways

1) Chuck experienced many years of successful ministry as a church planter. However, an uneasiness began to set in as he realized things were turning in the wrong direction.

2) One of the most devastating things a leader can experience happens when they begin to feel like a failure on the inside. Soon, they begin to believe they “are” a failure.

3) Having to tell his wife that he had a bad report from the doctor was a relief compared to telling her that a key family was leaving the church.

4) Consistently journaling each day was one of the most important things that allowed him to navigate the tough times.
