In our first two conversations on the most common mistakes of church starts, we focused on creating too much and too soon, a lack of strategic leadership development, not understanding why you do what you do, failing to let toxic church members go, and not establishing boundaries.

That’s it, right? Surely church starters and pastors don’t make many more mistakes than these…

In this conversation, we explore what happens when you fail to lead self, how reframing failure and success prevents some burnout, and the essential quality of gusto (you know, a healthy dose of fortitude).

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