Shop Talk Sessions with Mike Smith

Mike Smith facilitated three sessions for senior pastors on October 15, 22, and 29. The presentation portion was recorded and posted on our YouTube Channel. All pastors who participated said, “This was well worth my time!” Take advantage of this opportunity to learn from a wise and seasoned senior pastor:  1) healthy approach to the life and work of the senior pastor, 2) pastoring in a season of incivility and division, and 3) guiding and developing staff.



We released excellent TED Talks prior to the General Assembly:  Loss and Joy in the Same Sentence by Melissa Fallen; A Mission Statement Small Enough to Fit on a License Plate, Bit Enough to Change the Worldby Jim Somerville; Finding Faithfulness in Liminality by Barrett Owen; Leaning into the Tension: What Happens When a Local Church Talks Openly about Things “We Aren’t Supposed to Talk About”? by Sterling Severns; and Christian Citizenship in 2020 by Amanda Tyler. We are grateful to these gifted leaders for their investment in CBFVA clergy and congregations!
