It's Time to Become Fearless

In this special debut episode, Jonathan Herron interviews Jim Breuer about cues church leaders can take from professional comedians, what Breuer always does 30 minutes before going on stage, plus Jim's insights into the final days of the late Chris Farley and how he discovered the true goal and passion for his life.

Shatter Your Growth Barrier

There are only two professions that involve writing fresh new material every week that is delivered behind a solitary microphone in front of a live audience: Stand­-Up Comics and Pastors. 

Pews are empty among the Under­-40 Generation while comedy clubs are booming.

Holy Shift reveals the secrets of comedians, shakes pastors from tired old formulas and equips church leaders to passionately generate contagious enthusiasm for reaching people far from God.

“You gotta commit. You’ve gotta go out there and improvise and you’ve gotta be completely unafraid to die. You’ve got to be able to take a chance to die. And you have to die lots. You have to die all the time.

You’re goin’ out there with just a whisper of an idea. The fear will make you clench up. That’s the fear of dying. When you start and the first few lines don’t grab and people are going like,

“What’s this? I’m not laughing and I’m not interested,” then you just put your arms out like this and open way up and that allows your stuff to go out.”  -  Bill Murray
