Criticism in ministry: helpful or harmful?

If you’re a pastor, church planter or in any ministry leadership position, dealing with criticism is unavoidable. Now—perhaps more than ever—pastors are bombarded with emails, phone calls and text messages about how they ought to be handling things. But how should they respond to these criticisms? Is there some criticism that’s helpful and others that are harmful? In this episode, Dhati Lewis, Noah Oldham and Heiden Ratner will discuss hard criticism, helpful criticism, and harmful criticism and how to respond to each.
