“Fake it until you make it” is probably one of the worst mottos to live by in any vocation. At some point those mistakes will begin to pile up. If we are smart, we learn from the mistakes of others.

This week’s podcast is the second of a three-part conversation on the most common mistakes of church starting. Our partnership with a vast and diverse pool of church starters has afforded us the opportunity to listen to their stories and share lessons learned.

Some of these mistakes, include:

  1. Not letting toxic church members go
  2. A lack of personal and professional boundaries
  3. Ignoring all forms of self-care

This episode features Kyle Tubbs, CBF church starter and pastor of Peace of Christ Church in Round Rock, Texas.
