Dentistry Is Ministry: Bridging Biblical Worldview and Work

My interview with my friend and mentor Jim McKinney is now up at the BreakPoint website:

I once worked on the student ministry staff of a large suburban church under the supervision of a man who had never been to seminary nor employed at a church. When Dr. Jim McKinney sold his successful dental practice and came to our church as the director of student ministries, I told him that he may have left the chair for the pew, but working at a church was sometimes still “like pulling teeth.” As Jim’s story reveals, dentistry and ministry have a lot more in common than he first imagined. I recently suggested to Jim that his journey would be helpful for others to hear, so he agreed to answer a few questions (and you’ll see that, as is true about most conversations in the dentist’s office, the dentist will do most of the talking!).
