The Value Of Long-Term Pastorates, with Rich Brown (Podcast Ep 014)

Karl Vaters interviews Rich Brown about why long-term pastorates are good for the church, the pastor, the pastor’s family, and for the community we're called to reach.

My podcast guest this week is Rich Brown.

Rich is the author of Extended Stays: A Closer Look at Longer Pastorates. He has served for decades as a pastor and in Christian higher education. Currently he serves with IPM (Interim Pastor Ministries).

In this conversation, we talk about why long-term pastorates are good for the church, the pastor, the pastor’s family, and for the community we’re called to reach.

Including:

  • Some shocking stats about pastoral tenure
  • Why a series of short-term stays can be problematic
  • How to make a long-term stay effective for everyone
  • How to grow deeper through transition without relocation

and more.
