Our Christian Ministry Podcast

As a part of our commitment to creating a national support system for pastors, ministries, and congregations. Our cohort and immersion programs pioneer this promise to improve community engagement, but our Christian podcast is a great supplemental tool to use.

We cover topics such as preaching, racial justice, community, and the cultural attitude towards congregation. With this resource, you’ll feel more immersed and supported during your journey of building up your own community. Take a look below to hear some of our most recent ministry podcast publications.
