Inspiration4Ministry – Paul King-Brown

Many of us will recognise the name and the voice of pastor, author, keynote speaker and divorce coach, Paul King-Brown, now immersed in a new project: The Hub in Watford.

In this week’s episode, we learn about Paul’s empowering published book “Picking up the Pieces: from Brokenness to Breakthrough”, we also hear how his Church has risen to the challenges that COVID-19 has presented and actually thrived – becoming more intertwined as a community and support collective.

Paul guides us through his experience and philosophy on ministry and what makes it rewarding for him through a vast range of extraordinary life stories and testimonials. He also shares the tough side – spiritual warfare that can create obstacles in front of objectives.

“There is light in the tunnel depending on where you look, and light at the end of the tunnel. The beautiful thing about ministry is that despite the fight, God won’t let it die.”

You don’t want to miss this! Tune in now.
