Podcast Interview with Pastor / Author Zachary Bartels

at a crossroads behind the curtain ministry podcast noah filipiakEpisode #7 of “Behind the Curtain” Ministry Podcast is here!

In this interview I talk with Zachary Bartels on the balance of being both a pastor and a Christian fiction author.  We talk about the required “self-promotion” of the author world and the safeguards that have to be put in place to make sure this doesn’t become sin.  I share my own insecurities I faced when I began trying to get published, including embarrassing moments due to this insecurity.  We talk about making money as an author and using fiction as a medium for communicating gospel truth like a ninja.
