The complete September/October 2019 issue of Influence magazine is now available online.

In the cover article, “The Future-Ready Pastor,” Nate Ruch explains that every pastor is an interim pastor.

“Your church — every church — will undergo a transition of leadership at some point,” Ruch writes. “It matters how you prepare for that moment.”

Via his article, Mark DeYmaz explains why the future of church economics will require thinking beyond the offering plate.

And R. Dale Stephens Jr. writes about how to serve the poor by leveraging your church’s social capital.

The Multipliers section features four couples who have planted churches together and are successfully sharing pastoral duties. You’ll read about co-pastors Doug and Crystal Heisel of New Life Church (Assemblies of God) in the East Bay Area of San Francisco; Jonathan and Nicole Ember of Diversity Church (AG) in Indianapolis; Brandon and Casey Shank of Lifehouse Virginia Beach (AG) in Virginia Beach, Virginia; and Wayne and Kristi Northup of Saints Community Church (AG) in Metairie, Louisiana.
