In this episode, I interview Children’s Pastor, Tom Bump, about what he’s learned throughout thirty years of ministry. We have a great conversation about how to delegate, focus on your strengths, and approach conflict. He even shares about a specific conflict he had with his senior pastor and what that journey looked like.
