When I decided to put together an episode on coaching, I wanted to get two preachers who knew the topic — from both a sports perspective and a church perspective. I definitely got the right men. Kris Emerson is the preacher for the church of Christ in Lindale, Texas, and the host of the Excel Still More podcast. Terry Francis preaches for the church of Christ in Chelsea, Alabama, and partners with Phillip Martin to host the Do The Work live stream on Facebook.
Timothy had Paul. Paul had Barnabas. We all have mentors, and we should all be mentors to others. That’s the way we keep the gospel alive and vibrant for succeeding generations. How does mentoring work in the Lord’s church, and how can we make it work better?
