Introducing The Church Lobby Podcast! (Bonus Episode)

If it matters in the church, it happens in the church lobby.

Welcome to the introductory episode of The Church Lobby: Conversations on Faith & Ministry! (formerly, Can This Work in a Small Church?)

In this bonus episode I talk about some of the big news coming from this ministry over the next year or two, including the reasons for the podcast name change, such as:

  • The church lobby is where the church meets and does ministry
  • The church lobby moves conversations from the stage to the floor
  • The church lobby is a good place to take the temperature of a church’s health

Most of our real-life conversations about faith and ministry happen in church lobbies, both as a congregation and pastor-to-pastor.

In The Church Lobby podcast, that’s what we’ll continue to do, always keeping the emphasis on the small-church perspective.
