Episode 10: Conflict and The Marathon of Ministry

Welcome to Church Chat, the show where we have the conversations about ministry you wish we were having. In this episode, Josh and Emily are joined by John Nesbitt, Operations Specialist here at EFCA East. They talk about the value of a confidant and how to find a good one, the marathon of ministry, creating healthy work-life balance, cultivating the heart of a peace maker, finding conflict and resolving it, finding the balance between business and ministry and more!


John yielded his life to Christ in 1969 while a freshman at the University of North Carolina. After graduation, he met and married the love of his life, Terry. Together they began a lifetime of ministry through training at Dallas Theological Seminary. John and Terry have been blessed with two great sons who live in Ohio and Minnesota! John's passions in ministry include peacemaking, developing systems that help the body of Christ thrive, and being helpful. For recreation, John enjoys fitness, reading classic fantasy, and fine desserts!
