We are delighted to have Mark’s great friend Phillip Durr join us on the Church Leadership Podcast this week. Phillip is a pastor, church planter, chaplain and disciple maker. Phillip lives in Dothan, Alabama, where he serves as the pastor of New Vision Church. Mark and Andy get to have a great conversation with Phillip about being discipled (by Mark), planting churches, serving multi-ethnic and multiracial congregations, and trusting Jesus through it all. Listen, laugh, be encouraged, and enjoy this week’s episode.

We believe the conversations we have on this podcast help encourage and equip people just like you to lead in the local church. If you think this podcast would benefit others like you, simply subscribe, review, and share the Church Leadership Podcast.

Quotes from this week’s episode:

“I think a lot of churches that want to be multiracial and multicultural, I think it’s very important you have to plan things in advance …”

“It’s His ministry. It’s Him. It has nothing to do with you. It’s Him.”

“I think people don’t want to take steps of faith, but you have to, if you want to grow spiritually.”

“The biggest thing a disciple can do for a disciple is just believe, believe in him… People need someone to believe in them.”

“I don’t want to play life safe anymore.”

“I think it’s so important to listen to one another… and getting to know people that are different than you are.”
