Working at the Messianic Jewish Synagogue on Saturday and being an Evangelical Christian pastor at church on Sunday. What do you do when you are one of five people on the teaching team and you have to arm wrestle for the best passages? Lip-syncing to Tony Campolo teaching tapes. When the NT alludes to the OT it an Intertext, Allusion, or Remez? Or all three? Living your preaching life according to the motto “The mind can’t handle what the seat can’t endure.” In this Episode of the Teaching Pastor we have a conversation with Matt Davis Marriage and Family Pastor at Calvary Church Santa Ana.

Eric Wakeling loves the beginning and the end. . . it is the middle that is hard.

Working with and developing a teaching team as well as a creative team. What is that file folder called “buckets” used for. What does it mean to be “installed” as a Pastor? What is it like to go through an 18-month senior pastor succession process where you walk into rooms and they are talking about you. And, How long does it take to preach through Galatians? In this episode of The Teaching Pastor we have Eric Wakeling, The next Senior Pastor at Calvary Church of Santa Ana.

What do you do when you finish your sermon and think you “crushed it,” and all you hear are crickets? Getting teaching training by asking good questions of godly people and being a lifelong learner.

Preparing a message while discipling and training other people in a community.

Preaching is like birthing a baby every week!? How can you be a verse-by-verse Children’s pastor? Standing up when the Bible is read! Can commentaries become really good friends? The anticipation of Saturday nights when Sunday Morning is coming. Finding preaching outlets as an associate pastor. The journey of finding his voice in the pulpit. And, were Mike and Craig separated at birth?

In this Episode Craig has a conversation with Mike Sciarra, Senior Pastor at Grace Church of Orange.

What do Pastors and Comedians share in common? Going on a theological journey and appreciating the denominational landscapes. Writing mysteries and telling the story in your preaching. What is the difference between a Sermon and Homily? How do Ps 61, 2 Sam 16 and John 6 work together on a Sunday morning and preaching from the Lectionary?

Planning the Preaching Year by beginning with Ezekiel? Finding your “Prophetic Voice” when people in your congregation have known you since you were a baby. Using your Greek when "Uncle Bill" is William Mounce (the author of The Basics of Biblical Greek). Reading the Bible with “no stings attached” and no intention of teaching it. The anxiety of preaching simple things. The value of Standing Desks and the need for Killing your darlings. The power of the post-sermon nap.

A conversation about "The Secret Sauce" with Dave Gundlach Teaching Pastor at Grace Fellowship Church in Costa Mesa, CA.

 

The Origin Story

The Origin Story

November 29, 2017

The Teaching Pastor Podcast is a conversation about the process of moving from passage to message for anyone who teaches the Bible.

This episode is the origin story of where this idea came from, what you might expect to hear in our upcoming episodes and why we are interested in this whole thing.

This is a good place to start if you are new to the podcast.
