Stetzer will talk about issues relating to church and culture as

well as take questions from viewers.

The live webcast will begin

at 3 p.m. (Eastern) and can be viewed at LifeWay.com/theexchange.

During the

approximately 30-minute program, viewers will be able to communicate with one

another and with Stetzer via a chat feature on the web site or on


Stetzer has planted

churches, served as a pastor and helped revitalize churches in several states.

He has also trained pastors in countries around the world.

“I’m blessed with the

opportunity to meet a wide variety of people who often ask insightful questions

informed by their own unique experiences and perceptions,” Stetzer said. “Unfortunately,

I rarely have the opportunity to respond to these questions with as much

thoroughness as I would like, nor am I able to get back to everyone who has a

question or would like to dig deeper on a subject.

“‘The Exchange’ will give me

a chance to talk through some of these questions and, I hope, will be a

resource for people who are in the trenches doing ministry and engaging the

culture for Christ.”

The first episode will focus

primarily on “clergification,” or the division of the church into a false and

unbiblical hierarchy where a select few paid leaders “do ministry” and the

unpaid others are to “pay, pray and get out of the way.”

Stetzer will also discuss

his recent article in Christianity Today, which addressed church leaders’

tendency to incorrectly use statistics and research.
