In this “coronavirus edition” of the Spiritual Leadership Podcast, we are joined by three pastor guests:

  • Pastor Steve Chappell from Coastline Baptist Church in Oceanside, California
  • Pastor Dave Delaney from First Baptist Church in Long Beach, California
  • Pastor Chris Edwards from Graceway Baptist Church in Charlotte, North Carolina

The conversation was led by my son, Larry, who is an associate pastor here at Lancaster Baptist and leads our youth ministry. 

Throughout the episode, we discuss several questions, including the following topics:

  • Challenges and blessings of this past month of ministry in a pandemic
  • Changes in ministry originally brought on by the coronavirus that would be helpful to continue even after we are back to (a new) normal
  • The when and how of engaging back to assembling as local churches
  • The financial impact—both immediate and long term—for churches
  • Current and next preaching series 

It was a really fun discussion, full of insightful and practical applications for ministry. I hope it is encouraging and helpful to you.
