If you knew that 90% of your congregation was struggling with an issue, how would you address it?

Over the last four weeks, we've been talking about the common mistakes churches make when it comes to their weekend experience—including offering sermons/teaching that provide no real life application.

In this bonus episode, Tony sits down with Pastor Rick Atchley (The Hills Church in Fort Worth, Texas) whose church did the opposite: they embraced felt-needs teaching by identifying the needs in their congregation and developing a nine-part sermon series on mental health.

You can watch Pastor Rick's series, Let's Talk About Mental Health, here.

In this episode, Tony sits down with Stephanie Moreno, Director of Ministries at Christ Fellowship Miami, to discuss five common mistakes churches make when it comes to their children’s ministry and how they can effectively create a fun, safe, and secure environment for kids.
