A Church that Refused to Die

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Sam Rainer and Josh King to share the church revitalization story of Huffman Baptist Church, where I serve as Lead Pastor. Sam and Josh invited me to be a guest on the EST.church podcast.

Rob Paul from Huffman Baptist joins the show with Josh and Sam to discuss an amazing turnaround story. How do you lead an established church out of a death spiral? Rob shares how Huffman’s campus shifted from albatross to asset while also becoming a multi-ethnic congregation.
