How to Overcome the Barriers to Baptism

Did you know that there are barriers to people being baptized? It’s true and that’s the topic of this months free Church Leader Insights Podcast.  I’m particularly proud of this podcast.  And I can say that without one once of arrogance as….I’m not even on this month’s podcast!  Instead, Roy hosts Bob Franquiz for this insightful and practical podcast.


I believe that baptism is the most new testament way of going public with your faith.  Yet, a lot of people hold off on the decision to be baptized.  Why?  That’s what Bob Franquiz discusses in this new podcast.  Bob is a three time alumni of my coaching networks, a certified CLI traniner (he’s doing a Fusion event in Connecticut soon) and the Pastor of Calvary Fellowship in Miami Lakes, FL.  My huge thanks to Bob for sharing his insights!


Bob is also one of the guys who pushed me to enter the blog world (I’m grateful, I think).  He was blogging back before it was cool.  Here’s a few of my favorite posts from his blog:
