Michael Chittum: The Surprise & Challenge Along the Journey


Kathrin gets to share some wonderful conversation and laughter with her friend, Michael Chittum, who has walked alongside Ministering to Ministers in their service to others and been a Friend for the Journey to many over the past twenty-five years.  Michael’s years as a pastor and leader have culminated in this work as the Executive Director of the National Association of Christian Congregational Churches, which is most often abbreviated to simply “N.A.”.  During their dialogue, Michael shares how he’s been guided throughout his journey, what matters most to him, and how these inform his life.

Welcome, Friend. It’s great to have you with us.
