Tom Ascol on Being Faithful to the Local Church

What does it look like to faithfully serve a church for over 31 years?

Dave and Jamin are joined today by Dr. Tom Ascol. Tom is an author, a scholar, the Executive Director of Founders Ministries, and the pastor of Grace Baptist Church in Cape Coral, Florida where he has served for over 31 years.

The wide variety of topics discussed include the following:

– Tom Ascol’s early years in pastoral ministry and how God helped Tom resolve deep questions about what it means to be in ministry.
– The benefits of pastoring one church with a long-term vision
– The providence and pains for one struck by lightning
– The importance of thinking of pastoral ministry through a theological frame of mind.

This episode is packed with insight about faithfully serving the local church.  We think it will encourage you and stoke your motivation for loving, serving and leading within your local church!
