I remember at 3WLN #1 I had a few conversations with others about what it looks like to support our pastors, even if we might not fully agree with them. Here is a helpful article that gives 7 practical tips for supporting our pastors on a Sunday morning. These tips can go a long way toward building a relationship that can be mutually beneficial. This is also a good article to share with your church community, as they ask how to be helpful to you.
