ChurchMag has been going for over a decade now. Whoa. Let that sink in. Many churches, church tech, communications and creatives have found support over the years. Somewhere along the journey the podcast came along. We’re not done yet, but it’s always cool to look back. Here are the top 10 ChurchMag podcast episodes since the podcast started to the end of the 2010s decade.
(Well, like I said the podcast is relatively young compared to the blog. It’s just that everyone was doing these (decade) reflections and I thought it would be cool to do this with the podcast. Anyways, let’s check out the top 10 ChurchMag podcast episodes of the decade 😅)
#10 – The Art of Work
KC Procter interviewed Jeff Goins and they talk about Jeff’s book, “The Art of Work”. They explore pursuing passion, calling, writing and a whole lot more. Eric, Phil and Jeremy jump on after the interview and they talk about their journeys in creating and writing.
#09 Christmas Sunday Morning Service?
This episode was inspired by an audience question. To Christmas Sunday Morning service or not to? In this year, Christmas fell on a Sunday, and Jeremy and Phil debate on whether to have church on Sunday. Family? Church? What to do? A while ago but still a pertinent conversation.
#08 When Is There Too Much Tech in Church?
At ChurchMag, we’re all about that tech. This episode is one of my favourite and I’m not surprised it made the top 10. It made for great discussion because every church and organization needs to always wrestle with the question.
#07 What To Do With Old Technology
Many churches have a closet or a room full of old cassette tapes, sound equipment etc. Churches have processes / policies of getting new technology but few, have anything in place for what to do with old technology.
#06 The Man Behind The App: Verses
On this episode, we hear from Zach Whelchel and Brock Klein—creators of Verses app. Eric interviews the duo behind the app and they talk about inspiration and execution of the app. He also touches on the importance of supporting devs like them.
#05 Riddle Me This: Level Up Your Presentation
Eric, Jeremy and Phil answer a question from Sarah, on what to do to take Sunday presentations to the next level. You’ll need to go here to see links for some of the programs mentioned.
#04 How Can We Help Fight Pornography
Though recorded in 2015 the challenge of pornography still exists and this episode is still worth our attention. There is still more we can and should do in addressing the epidemic.
#03 Mike Rohde Talks Sketchnote
#02 Carey Nieuwhof Talks Ministry Tech
Carey Nieuwhof continues to be a sound voice and a great resource in how churches and leaders can be relevant. It doesn’t come as a surprise to me that this episode is in the top 3 of the most popular episodes. It is so good and a must listen.
#01 Watch Out for Google Analytics Snake Oil
The most listened to podcast episode explored Google Analytics. It was about leveraging Google Analytics on your church or organization’s websites. Who knows maybe your side project.
As we come to the end of the year, and decade, there, you have it. The top ChurchMag Podcast Episodes of the decade. 😉
