The Performance Trap with Matt Ehresman

Show Notes

Show Notes:

This week I welcome Matt Ehresman to the show. Matt is the Creative Media Director at First MB Church in Wichita, Kansas and the author of “Upstream – 8 Counter Cultural Ways to Live a Better Life.” Matt worked for Focus on the Family for years and I talked to him about his experience there and in church world. We stirred our conversation to the topic of getting stuck in the Performance Trap – how we as leaders can sometimes fall into the trap of performing and don’t take the necessary time to disengage and unplug from our work.

Church Media Resource of the Week:

“Upstream” by Matt Ehresman

This book tackles eight key subjects where we as Christians can improve and, maybe, if we do them well, we will live better, more engaging, and more encouraging lives. Let’s change the world. Let’s figure it out together. Let’s talk about some things that really matter, and let’s see if we can make a difference.

Let’s go upstream. Learn more here.
