Circuit Riding Pastors

Monday, August 30, 2021 | Guest: Richard Archut |
Topics: Church Life

As pastors retire and fewer men are prepared to replace them, is a man who pastors multiple churches a viable option? In this podcast, Marshall Fant discusses circuit-riding pastors with Richard Archut, pastor of Community Bible Church in Barrington, NJ, and New Freedom Bible Church in Berlin, NJ. As someone who has had a long relationship with both of these churches that are 25 minutes apart, Pastor Archut shares the advantages, challenges, and goals he has in shepherding these flocks. You can reach out to Richard Archut with any questions you may have by email
