Want to sit down at a table of collective wisdom with the “Yoda” and “Obi Wan Kenobi” of American Lutheranism? Tune in to today’s Pastor Mike Drop podcast and hear what the first Lutheran pastor to launch a successful second campus (Dr. Dave Johnson) & the first Lutheran pastor to integrate contemporary music into Sunday services (Dr. Merv Thompson) have to say about the past, present and future of the church. Former senior pastors of two of the largest and most innovative churches in the Midwest, Dave and Merv now serve as part-time pastors at Hope, and offer some unique and brilliant insights on the state of the church. Turns out, despite rumors to the contrary, there’s still a whole lot of hope!
