    Ep. 11 - Rev. Hendrik Versteeg & Rev. Bruce Parnell - Mission & Psalm Singing

    Ep. 11 - Rev. Hendrik Versteeg & Rev. Bruce Parnell - Mission & Psalm Singing

    This episode is a special one, featuring interviews with two different pastors who've worked in vastly different contexts. Rev Hendrik Versteeg served as missionary in Indonesia and Papua New Guinea for many years. Rev. Bruce Parnell has served as a pastor in a mission plant church in Stillwater, Oklahoma for many years as well. We talked with them about their different mission experiences in the jungles of PNG and the Bible Belt of America and in particular asked them about their music traditions in their respective congregations. We hope this episode is informative for all who listen and can further aide our discussions around Psalms, Hymns, and music within our churches. To keep up with the podcast, check out our website: https://www.realtalkpodcast.ca/ Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates, clips, and more! Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ReformedRealTalk Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/reformedrealtalk/ We'd love to hear from you.
