Episode 032 – How Can We Defend The Church? – With Brad Lomenick (Part 1)

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 Part 1 of our conversation featuring Leadership Guru and Consultant, Brad Lomenick.

Brad served as the Founding Leader of Catalyst Conference, now a thirteen year phenomenon of providing a 3 day space for some of the brightest faith and business leaders in the country. He’s the author of best-selling books, The Catalyst Leaders and H3 Leadership.You can learn more about his work at any of the links below.
