Episode 168 – The Identity and Pressures of Pastoring with Pastor Brandon Cox

Episode sponsored by

Some discussions require paper and pen. This is another one of them. For the last two weeks our Host, Christopher J Harris, welcomed Dr Efrem Smith to unleash his brilliance and passion around the local church, the black church, the multi-ethnic church and what all of this looks like in the future. He plainly challenged the church to reconsider what happens when we dream again. This week’s conversation is just as rich. We welcome Pastor Brandon Cox to our podcast to engage in a robust conversation around Pastoring. His unique experience criss-crossing the country in various ministry settings will shed light and wisdom for today’s Pastor, in any context.

Pastor Brandon Cox has been a pastor and church planter, a writer, blogger, and author. He has also built a digital marketing business. Currently, he’s diving into the world of real estate. He’s written a book entitled Rewired, published by Passio (Charisma House), and it’s all about how to use social media to spread the good news of Jesus further – a passion of his. His writings about life, leadership, and digital marketing have been featured in various publications including Leadership JournalMinistry TodayOutreach, and The Church Executive.

Pastor Brandon is married to Angie (a therapist), high school sweethearts, and they have three kids.
