Episode 031 – How Can We Defend The Church? – With Dr Warren Bird
For the months of August and September, the Wise Idea Podcast and our host Christopher J Harris will tackle the tough topics surrounding the challenges facing today’s church. The emphasis is on the North American Protestant church. To be sure, the Church has it share of real issues and problems and the media has presented The Church as a problem institution that is out of touch with today’s culture. While not ignoring the realities of the challenges that the Church has, we want to approach those in a redemptive and restorative way and address some many of the failings of today’s church. This episode is of our conversation featuring Researcher and Author Dr. Warren Bird.
Dr. Bird is widely recognized as one of the nation’s leading researchers of megachurches, multisite churches, large church compensation and high-visibility pastoral succession. He also oversees the world’s only active, sortable list of global megachurches. You can learn more about his work at any of the links below.
