  • Podcast: “What is digital-first ministry?” (UMCOM)

    [vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]PASTORIA’s Head of Platform and Co-founder, James J. Kang, was a guest on United Methodist Communications’ Pastoring in the Digital Parish podcast, with Rev. Ryan Dunn, in June of 2021. James put forth that ministry is first an idea that must be incarnated. Before, it was in-person or in-building. Now, it can genuinely be digital-first.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

  • Podcast: Your Calling vs. The Calling

  • Podcast: “Make discipleship more affordable – the Church is too expensive”

    [vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Recently, a meditation app announced plans to merge with an on-demand mental health services company. It makes total sense. But, much like mental health, discipleship also has levels. Most churches often sit at the highest level of both benefit as well as requirement. This makes it unaffordable for many people.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

  • Podcast: “Be a pastor of the future; don’t be a pastor of the past.”

    [vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Another seven-minute ministry consultation on why a pastor of the future is a student of culture and not a convene of an event nor a curator of a community.

  • S3E4 – In a fractured society, the pastor must be a linguist

    [vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text] Recorded on the day a group of people forced themselves into the United States Capitol building, it seems clear that the pastor must at minimum help people have a common language to describe their life, how they feel, and what they believe, not necessarily the same life, feelings, or beliefs. #OWNYOURSHIFT [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row […]

  • S3E3 – How many carpenters do we follow?

    [vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text] The typical pastor’s bookshelf likely has few authors that are a carpenter as Jesus was. But, in 2021, will we continue to learn exclusively from a certain elite group of experts or all people? Will our ideas be so refined or can we allow them to be challenging? #OWNYOURSHIFT [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row el_id=”podcast”][vc_column][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

  • S3E2 – Self-Care vs. Self-Growth

    [vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text] Often, the problem with talented, competent people is that they stick to what they have gotten good at and so they do not like to expand to what is newly needed in the changing ministry environment. So, how can you grow? You have to break your own cycle of affirmation. #OWNYOURSHIFT [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row […]

    [vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text] A little guidance for pastors in their downtime or reflection time of how to lead even better in 2021. #OWNYOURSHIFT [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row el_id=”podcast”][vc_column][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
