When Pastors Let us Down

Episode 636 Show Notes 

From the Show

A lot of the problems in the church are more public because of the news and social media, and, sadly, people are drawn to those stories. At the end of the day, your pastor should be a man of integrity. But you are never called to place your trust in your pastor, you are called to place your trust in Jesus.

——Adriel Sanchez
