About the Hello Church! Podcast

Welcome to the Hello Church! Podcast, powered by Ministry Pass and hosted Justin Trapp and Wade Bearden!

Preaching shouldn’t add stress to your ministry… unfortunately, it often does! Every episode of the Hello Church! Podcast helps pastors just like you plan, prepare, and preach compelling sermons with less stress for longer lasting impact.

Let Justin and Wade help you discover new ways to outline your messages, conduct sermon research, find illustration ideas, and plan sermon series that stick with your people and inspire them to deepen their faith and strengthen their commitment to follow Christ.

If you are dedicated to keeping your messages faithful and relevant while growing your individual skills as a communicator, you’ll love Hello Church! Podcast.

Your best messages are ahead of you and we are excited to help you and your ministry thrive.
