HCR021: Interview with Dr. Matthew McDill

Country Church
In this episode, I interview Dr. Matthew McDill, pastor of Highland Christian Fellowship in Boone, NC, and adjunct professor at Appalachian State University. Here are some of the things we discuss:
  • Matthew tells the story of how he planted HCF in Boone.
  • He discusses the challenges they faced which produced leadership. Men responded to divisiveness in the body, and elders emerged as they rose up to lead and protect the church.
  • We discuss the “open-mic” time that the church enjoys every Sunday, and how that produces growth in the body.
  • Matthew talks about the growth of the church in learning to give each other grace in the ‘nonessentials.’
  • We talked about what a typical Sunday looks like at HCF.
  • Matthew discusses what ‘age-integration’ means to him and his church.
  • Dr. Matthew McDill pastors Highland Christian Fellowship.
