#41: On Life’s Expectations & God’s Goodness

In this episode of the Ministry Minded Podcast, I share some thoughts about God’s grace even in the midst of life’s most terrifying seasons and how God’s goodness is always greater than we remember it — his goodness exceeds our expectations. When we look back over the course of our lives, we will only have witnessed a fraction of how infinitely good God is to us.

#40: On Scotland & 20 Schemes with Gerald White

Scotland, once a “land of the book,” has all but lost its way, having no faith upon which to fall. In this episode of Ministry Minded, Gerald White returns to the podcast to talk about contextualizing and appropriating the gospel in the difficult ministry endeavors in Scotland’s “schemes.”

#39: On My Testimony of Salvation

In this episode of Ministry Minded, I share my salvation testimony, the story of how God drew me to himself. It’s not that I suppose my testimony is crucial to tell; rather, I think each of our stories are equally important. No testimony of salvation is “better” or greater than the other.

In this installment of the Ministry Minded Podcast, I’m joined by Pastor Landon Coleman to talk about local pastors and speaking the paradigm-shifting gospel into their unique situations.

#21: The State of the Podcast

#21: The State of the Podcast

In this episode of Ministry Minded, I attempt to speak to the whirlwind that has been the year 2017. Filled with seemingly more ebbs and flows than normal, this year has been a veritable maelstrom of emotions and seasons of life. Trying to make sense of it all would be nigh impossible — if not for God’s grace.
