On preaching, humor, and the gospel with Kevin Labby.

Ministry Minded, Episode 5.

In this episode, I sit down with Pastor Kevin Labby to discuss the intertwining of humor and ministry at length, along with touching on preaching law and gospel in a youth ministry setting. Kevin also shares a story about one of his first experiences preaching — one that didn’t go so well!

Kevin is the lead pastor of Willow Creek Church in Winter Springs, Florida, where he lives and serves with his wife Molly, and four children. He’s also heavily involved with the Key Life Network, where he writes occasionally.
