Welcome to “Podcasting for Pastors”! My name is Kahn Ellmers, And I wrote this with local church pastors or lay pastors in mind. It’s a comprehensive guide designed to help you navigate the world of podcasting. This guide will walk you through everything you need to know to start your podcast: you will understand what a podcast is, how to plan, record, edit, and produce your podcast, as well as publish, and promote it.

With the growth of digital media, podcasting has emerged as a powerful tool for ministry.

Each section of this guide is designed to walk you through a specific aspect of the podcasting process, complete with practical tips and resources.
