Word and Work: Leading Midsize Congregations

In Word and Work: An Intersection, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis President Dr. Dale A. Meyer interviews Dr. David Peter, dean of faculty and professor of practical theology, about his new book, Maximizing the Midsize Church: Effective Leadership for Fruitful Mission and Ministry with Kregel Publications. The two men highlight the specific needs of the midsize churches — congregations with an average worship attendance of 150 to 400 — in this handbook for pastors and church staff.

Later in the audio program, Dr. David R. Schmitt, the Gregg H. Benidt Memorial Professor of Homiletics and Literature, chats with Assistant Professor of Practical Theology Dr. Peter Nafzger about a chapel sermon in a Preacher’s Studio segment.

You can download the episode in video (mp4) or audio (mp3) format at the Word and Work Scholar page.
