On theology and writing with Nicholas Davis.

Ministry Minded, Episode 26.

In this episode, Nicholas Davis and I seek to speak to the reality of the bi-vocational minister and the common pitfalls that come along with that. We also speak to the significance of Christian writing and offer helpful advice for other young writers.

Nicholas lives in San Diego, California with his wife and three sons. There, he serves as the lead pastor of Redemption Church.
