Podcast Episode 61 - The Scoreboard of the Monday Church with Tom Nelson of Made to Flourish

Today, we’re in Kansas City with Tom Nelson. Tom is the visionary pastor of a multi-site church called Christ Community, and he’s been widely recognized in the Faith Driven Entrepreneur community for his book, Work Matters.
