In this episode, I talk with NextGen Pastor, Kelly Stockdale. Kelly and I talk about what #NextGen looks like, specifically in a small church context, but the principles of prioritizing small groups, partnering with parents, and valuing volunteers apply across the board. Kelly also shares about the course she'll be leading for preschool leaders with Ministry Boost in the fall.
