Struggles and Solutions to Challenges Pastors and Their Wives Face

Monday, March 7, 2022 | Guest: Dave and Claudia Barba |

What are some of the common problems pastors and churches are facing in today's culture? What are some of the biblical solutions to these struggles? In this RE: CHURCH episode, Marshall Fant discusses both the struggles and their solutions with Dave and Claudia Barba of Press On! Ministries, a ministry assisting churches at all stages of growth. Before starting Press On! Ministries, the Barbas planted two churches and traveled in evangelism. They speak from nearly 40 years of ministry experience and have a desire to help other pastors and their wives. If you are a pastor's wife, Claudia Barba would welcome your reaching out to her here. Dave Barba is available as well by email.
