Episode 99: Letters to a New Pastor with Ben Gosden
A Millennial pastor imparts lessons learned during this decade in the pulpit.
"They didn't teach that in seminary." That's the phrase you will hear a pastor say sometimes as they encounter an unexpected situation. But the education of a minister doesn't end when they get their Masters of Divinity degree. Indeed, it is a lifelong education that can last decades.
Methodist pastor Ben Gosden began writing a series of articles on his blog to new pastors, sharing some of the knowledge he's learned in over a decade of ministry. Ben is the Lead Pastor of Trinity United Methodist in Savannah, GA. We talk about what he’s learned in over a decade of being in the pulpit, as well as how to talk about racism and privilege. He even gives me some needed advice. Watch the interview snippet below and then listen to the full interview.
