Rev. Dr. Jamison Hardy, Bishop of the LCMS English District and author of Pastoral Leadership, Shepherding and Caring for God’s People available from Concordia Publishing House, joins Andy and Sarah for our series on Leadership to talk about financial matters and why they’re important as a pastor, including how one’s understanding of money is significant in leadership and mission, why it’s not enough to only teach good biblical stewardship from the pulpit, some financial terms and concepts that a pastoral leader should know, how laziness or complacency to financial matters impacts the health of a congregation, and why the pastor should be involved in the budgeting process.
