Episode 126: Deciding to Stay or Go in Ministry

In this episode, Kenny Conley and Kevin Monahan host a panel discussion of NextGen leaders centered around the question, “Should I stay or go?” In ministry, we are constantly evaluating where God has us, and where he is calling us. We want to be prayerful, seek wisdom, and ask good questions in discerning this. These leaders, who have made decisions to stay and go in different seasons, share great insight and helpful tools for wrestling with this question.
