This week our guest is Bill Selby who is the Creator and Mentor for the Center for Pastoral Effectiveness of the Rockies. Bill is a retired Elder of the Rocky Mountain Conference and serves through the center in assisting Clergy in thinking and dealing with Anxiety. We talk about the Center, how Bill got his start in ministry, his childhood and way too many other topics to sum up! We also feature as a special guest Bill’s amazing wife Sherilee who joined us unknowingly for a moment or two.
While recording at St. Paul UMC in Lincoln, NE we enjoyed being serenaded by the choir in rehearsal and some very insistent students of Scripture as we interviewed Sam Fisher. As a recent college graduate Sam serves as a District Superintendent Assignment for Olive Crest UMC in Omaha, NE. We talk about growing up in western Nebraska and his faith background, his political aspirations as a youth and how the realities turned him back to the church and how Funeral Directors are often a Pastor’s best friend!
Our 7th guest on the podcast is Ashlee Alley, who serves as the Clergy Recruitment and Development Coordinator for the Great Plains Annual Conference based out of Lincoln. Ashlee is an ordained Deacon and came to her current role after serving in campus ministry at Southwestern College. We discuss her transition into this new role, her passion for discernment in vocational calling for others, and for her own path to ministry.
