This week’s WorshipLife Podcast welcomes special guest, (and brother of our own, Craig Adams) Chris Adams. Listen as Mike, Craig, and Chris discuss how to maintain a healthy work-life balance, how to spot and prevent burnout, and how to craft your ministry role in a way that leans towards your strengths and gifts.
“It’s out of that core identity of being in Christ, that then ministry flows — as opposed to trying to earn that by succeeding in ministry.” — Rev. Chris Adams, Ph.D.

WHY WorshipLife Podcast with Mike Harland: From the historic B.B. McKinney Studios in Nashville, TN, Mike and Brian introduce WorshipLife.com’s newest podcast, WorshipLife Podcast w/ Mike Harland! Together, Mike and Brian, recognize the importance of having conversations with churches… getting churches talking about, learning and observing what God is doing throughout the world.
