The Other 99 - Equipping The Church for Community, Discipleship, and Mission
About This Show
Across all denominations, pastors make up only 1% of Christians in America, yet they are expected to do the bulk of the work of the church. Every other week, David, Bethany, and Guy will have a conversation that aims to equip the other 99% - normal church folk - to do the work of the church.
Welcome to The Other 99, a podcast to equip the church for community, discipleship, and mission.
