On God’s great heart for pastors with Randy Greenwald.

In this episode, I’m joined pastor and writer Randy Greenwald to talk about his newsletter, “Greatheart’s Table,” and why pastoral efficiency is a bad thing, along with a host of other topics relating to ministry in the local church.

Randy Greenwald is the pastor of Covenant Presbyterian Church in Oviedo, Florida, where he lives and serves with his wife Barb. Along with serving the church, Randy is a visiting lecturer at the Orlando campus of Reformed Theological Seminary, as well as the author of the pastoral-helps newsletter Greatheart’s Table.
