TJ Freeman & Joe Wagner

In this episode we discuss...

  • why we need more rural pastors by interviewing Brad Gray, former city slicker and pastor of Stonington Baptist Church.
    • Questions Brad Answers:
      • We rural pastors can smell guys like you a mile away. What are you doing in rural Pennsylvania?
      • What were you expecting when you thought about leaving the hustling, bustling tropics for rural PA?
      • You’re young, you’re in seminary, and a lot of people in your situation go to rural places as a stepping stone to get to “bigger and better” opportunities. Are you here today and gone tomorrow, or is this something you really feel called to?
      • What have you learned about the need for good churches and good pastors in rural places? Did this surprise you?
        • Ministry success is about quiet faithfulness: feeding your flock and making much of Jesus.
      • What would you say to someone who is entering ministry, or thinking of transitioning about the potential of serving in a rural place?
      • Quickly tell us how you are ministering to your congregation and community during the coronavirus outbreak.
    • Places to reach Brad Gray:
