If you don't smell like your people, are you really pastoring them? - @rgallaty Additional Resources: Replicate E-quipping Cohort Growing Up Series Lifeway Leadership Podcast Network New Churches Q&A Podcast Help us grow the podcast: Please subscribe Leave a rating and review on Apple Podcasts This Episode's Sponsor: What happens when the Bible and humanity collide?
