Christine talks with Lauren Chandler, wife to Matt, who serves as the lead pastor at the Village Church in Flower Mound, TX. They have three kids, and Lauren loves to serve inside the church through leading worship and in some other ways you’ll hear about in the conversation. She serves the global church through writing: she’s written a few Bible studies and children’s books.
Lauren joins Christine to talk about zeroing in on our sweet spot in ministry: how do we know what our gifts are? And how do we say no to other opportunities? Lauren shares how comparison and perfectionism have hindered her from serving in her sweet spot. She also shares the unique challenges and blessings of serving as the pastor’s wife at a large church.
