Ur Video: Chandler vs. Furtick

Are seeker churches shallow? Are Reformed pastors doctrine snobs? Two young church leaders voice their differences.

Everyone in pastoral ministry has a bias. Some of us prefer deep doctrinal teaching. Others value ministry that is practical and immediately applicable. Others are all about reaching those far from God. And while there is nothing wrong with those different approaches, let's be honest–many of us hold judgments and feed stereotypes about ministers in other camps.

In this video from The Elephant Room event featuring Matt Chandler and Steven Furtick, they openly admit their judgments about each others' ministries. The tension is evident, but the honesty is refreshing.
