Ministry Inside or Outside of an Echo Chamber?

Monday, October 19, 2020 | Guest: Jeremy Sweatt |

What is an echo chamber and what are the advantages and disadvantages of one? How can you be tenaciously committed to the Scripture but seek new ideas for practically doing ministry within your own context? What questions work as filters? From whom should you seek counsel? Thinking outside the box is not the same as thinking outside the Bible. Listen in episode 56 of RE: CHURCH as Marshall Fant interviews Jeremy Sweatt about ministering inside and outside of an echo chamber. Jeremy was reared in a pastor's home and is from traditional, independent Baptist churches. He planted a church in the Atlanta suburbs before moving to New England. He has served as senior pastor of Farmington Avenue Baptist Church in West Hartford, CT, for the last five years.
