Practical Church Planting   -  

When meeting with and counseling people in your church, there can be an internal pressure to think you have to have all the right answers. In this episode, we share questions to ask that are often more helpful than giving advice.

Here are the 7 questions we discuss in this episode:

  • If you could do it over again, what would you do differently?
  • Repeat a question if you didn’t get a real answer
