Shawn Lovejoy is the author of The Measure of Our Success: An Impassioned Plea to Pastors and Be Mean About the Vision: Preserving and Protecting What Matters. He is a church planting veteran, having planted Mountain Lake Church in Cumming, GA, which he recently stepped away from after 16 years to focus on coaching leaders and pastoring pastors at www.CourageToLead.com. Noah Filipiak interviews Shawn about his transition away from his church plant, about the epidemic of church planters with non-Christlike goals, the denominations that push these goals, and the walls pastors hit when their disillusionment catches up with them. Noah and Shawn both share their own struggles in these areas, with Shawn giving great wisdom from the hundreds of church planters and pastors he has coached over the years in these areas.
