023 How does a downtown church find God’s work beyond their red doors?



An intentional self-study as a beloved pastor of thirty plus years was retiring, a congregational development course challenged a downtown congregation to discern they wanted to be not only more visible in their community, but more active and engaged. It led them out the front doors, to look up and around at the connections to be made.  “We didn’t set out to start whole new social service agency. We were just trying to figure out, how can we as a faith community bring our resources, energy, talents and skills to the table to meet some of the needs we have in this community?”

With Robyn Burnett and Ken Luebbering from Grace Episcopal Church in Jefferson City and host Deacon Harry Leip.
