Best Podcast Ever

Out of all the podcasts I’ve listened to over several years, none have matched InVerse in covering a range of topics and guests with such grace and generosity. It’s so good.

If you want to meet people who don’t just talk *about* Jesus, but are actively seeking to embody and live the Way, InVerse has been a wonderful doorway into community.

So Good

Jarrod McKenna and Drew Hart graciously and eloquently challenge the entrenched and hidden assumptions of violent white supremacist Christianity in a way that will open up your heart to the beautiful possibilities of life lived the Jesus Way.
