Episode 153: On Caring for Members Unwilling to Come Back to Church (with Nathan Knight)
Among the many things 2020 has made more complicated, there is caring for members who are unwilling to come back to church. Some hate that they aren’t attending, but either their health or other circumstances make their non-attendance a wise choice. Others, however, seem to have less clear reasons.

In this episode of Pastors Talk, Jonathan Leeman chats with Mark Dever and Nathan Knight about these questions and more.
