Today we’ve got Chip Buhler, a church consultant, pastor, and trainer of pastors, and founder of
Chip and I have been friends since we ministered together in college back in the late 80s and early 90s, when we experienced a move of God on our campus that has since produced pastors, church planters and missionaries.
Chip’s particular ministry has evolved into leadership training and life planning for pastors. I’m glad to call him a friend.
A few weeks ago, Chip and I were talking about personal evangelism for pastors. I’m developing a new seminar based around this theme, because the goal of our ministry is to help pastors be effective in personal evangelism, as well as lead personal evangelism in their congregations.
If you were to imagine evangelism as a field, today’s focus is narrowed down to one part of how evangelism happens: out of the overflow of your own relationship with Christ.
Listen in as Chip shares about nurturing the pastor’s personal relationship with Christ.
- Area number 1: Personal spirituality
- Area number 2: Soul care
- Area number 3: Sins of Omission
At the end, Chip gives us some great practical action steps and a much needed message for pastors to hear. After I did this podcast with him, I did some of those action steps and feel better. It was a personally needed call to action.
