Scott Elgersma is the head pastor of The River Church in Redlands, California. After spending 11 years pastoring high school and middle school students, Scott became the head pastor of a church in Southern California. I’ve known Scott since I was 14 years old, the age when I started attending his youth group. We have remained close friends to this day. In this episode, we discuss what it means to connect with teenagers, how Scott teaches, and the way he leads in the polarizing political climate.
We spend a great deal of time breaking down a speech he gave to his church the day after Donald Trump was inaugurated. You will hear clips of that speech in the podcast, and there is a link in the notes below to the full video on Facebook.
We provide longform and “shortcuts” versions of each conversation to meet your listening needs.
