Karl Vaters and Small Church Essentials
Welcome to the 96th episode of Productive Pastor. We've got a fantastic episode with Karl Vaters for you! He's the author of Small Church Essentials and The Grasshopper Myth. He's also the teaching pastor at Cornerstone Christian Fellowship.  In this episode we talk about:  The church industrial complex and the problem with grow, grow, grow. How your churches denomination and culture play into the idea of growth. Big churches require a different type of funding and membership.  It's about gifting, not skill. Or better or worse skills. Just a different type of personality.  Extroverts and Introverts in ministry, and how that plays out in ministry.   The longer the church has been around, the more challenging it will be for defining pastoral expectations.   APEST and the job of the pastor.   The tension of defining large vs. small in different church traditions.  The role of tenure in the small church.  Vision casting in the small church.   Connect with Karl  New Small Church (blog) @karlvaters Small Church Essentials* The Grasshopper Myth* Back Matter Have you checked out the Productive Pastor Community?

Preaching, Podcasting, and Paper
I want to share about 3 things I'm thinking about and hearing about a bunch right now. This episode will be a bit of a mishmash, but it's all recurring conversations in the Productive Pastor world.  Front Matter Big Data and the 21st Century Church - Justin Allison  I can't begin to tell you how Justin's thoughts and writing have had us at Foundry thinking about how we utilize our database. He's asking some great questions, but also showing you how to do some amazing work inside of Planning Center People Productive Pastor on Patreon  Big thanks to Matt Stout, Tony Smith and Thomas Cackler for supporting the podcast!

I've always been on the lookout for some of my favorite podcasts on the art of preaching and preparation. Here are the ones I listen to right now.  The Art of the Sermon SermonSmith The Teaching Pastor Podcasting I think more and more churches (and pastors) are beginning to podcast outside of simply sharing their sermon. I think it is an amazing way to expand your voice, create better engagement, and find new ways to talk about your ministry. This is a growing segment, and here are three podcasts I find extremely interesting.  Maybe God The Holy Family Podcast This Cultural Moment   If you want to explore a more narrative podcast with your church, or just simply up your game on podcasting, here are a few pieces of equipment I find to be extremely helpful towards creating a quality podcast. * Interface : Focusrite Scarlet 2i2 or Zoom H6N (I use both of these) Microphone : Shure SM58   Paper Over the last few months I have been using paper more and more as I plan and work. I've gone back to using many things I have created over the years and slowly moved away from. Now, I am almost entirely paper based in my actual workflow.  Back Matter Have you checked out the Productive Pastor Community?

A Year of Talking With God (with Adam Weber) | Productive Pastor
A Year of Talking With God (with Adam Weber) I’ve got to say, Adam is consistently one of my favourite podcast guests. Below I’ve linked to all the times I’ve had him on a show. We spend our time talking about being the author of a book on prayer has changed his personal life with God, the way he relates to his family, and how this has helped and been part of his fast-growing church. We also have a great story about how Adam learned about sheep.
