Tim Keel

Tim Keel, of Jacob’s Well church, joins us from Kansas City with much goodness to share about his sermon preparation workflows in our longest interview to date. He shares about the importance of good tools to capture ideas, the value of regular study leaves, and his need for tacticity (yes, I may have just created a new word) through white boards, paper books and plain old copy paper.
