Creating a Healthy Relationship between the Lead Pastor and Lead Artist
By Eric Bramlett and Dave Ferguson

Radio. Newspapers. Email. Television. Blogs. Magazines. Books. Podcasts. Weekend service messages. From the moment we wake up, to going to bed, we are inundated with information. Our congregation is overwhelmed with messages throughout the week. So what do we do to make the mission and message of Jesus stand out? How do we help our people not just hear the message but apply it to their lives? Listen in as Dave Ferguson, Lead pastor of Community Christian Church and Eric Bramlett, Creative Arts Director, talk about their process, their relationship and how this produces the ONE BIG IDEA that will be communicated in their weekend service and throughout their church ministries. Learn how a strong, trust-filled relationship between the lead pastor and lead artist can lead to great services and an environment where risk taking is encouraged and celebrated.
