Fantastic!

As a pastor of a rural, established church, I find this podcast so helpful. I listen to each episode and am encouraged, challenged, and laugh a little too. The hosts are down-to-earth and I feel like they’re in my car with me, discussing life and ministry.

Winner!

Besides occassional guilt tripping foolishness like "Africans can't take vacations" (yes, Africans do take vacations; I've seen it), these guys drop wisdom left and right. You better have a pen ready, because you'll be constantly writting down the wisdom gems they share. I love how they think deeply about their calling and have entertaining banter. I love their passion for pastoring. The New Churches Q&A Podcast recommended the Lifeway Leadership Network which led me to this. So intellectually and spiritually stimulating!

@estchurch

Great podcast primarily for established church pastors but relevant and practical for every pastor. Solid wisdom born out of experience by three local church pastors in a conversational style. It is not an echo chamber. Each pastor has his own take on the various topics. Worth 30 minutes each week. I never miss an episode.

Great podcast for those called to shepherd an established church

I love listening to Josh, Sam, and Micah, the guests have been awesome, and as a 40 year old in his first lead pastorate, these guys sharing their wisdom is a course, lesson, and mentorship I enjoy

Super Helpful

Great podcast for pastors of established churches. Micah, Josh, and Sam help pastors and church leaders think through innovative ways to help established churches remain viable and relevant. Very practical and applicable regardless of how large or small your church may be.

Good content/not so good audio quality

Great podcast for leaders of the established church, especially those of you that are part of SBC... Only issue is the audio quality is hit or miss from one podcast to another. It often goes from distortion to a whisper within a podcast. I listen to podcast at work all day and find myself having to turn up and turn down podcast depending on who is talking and how close they are to the mic.Keep up the good work!

Fantastic Church Leaders Podcast

So many church leadership podcasts talk about things I never experience in my established church. To be honest, I never realized that it was because I was in an established church until this podcast came along. Now I’m able to better appreciate the unique challenges that myself and others experience as established church pastors. Every episode hits home and is relevant and helpful for me and our church. Thank you guys for your hard work putting out solid content each week. Keep it up!

Invaluable insight by exceptional leaders

As someone who has worked in the established church for years and now serving as a first time Senior Pastor at one, EST has been invaluable resoure for me and has helped shaped many of my thoughts and strategies in what we are trying to implement in our 100+ year old capitol city SC church. I appreciate the continual encouragement EST brings to church leaders and the consistent sense of humor that Micah, Josh, and Sam have with each other make it an easy listen. Keep up the good work guys!

5 Stars for 3 Insightful Practitioners

As a new Senior Pastor of an established church, this podcast has been both insightful and encouraging to me as I seek to help the church move forward. It is integral to my weekly podcast regimen and I suggest you make it a part of yours.
