On Point for pastors and churches today

I’ve read Fitch for a few years now and thoroughly enjoy his thinking on ecclesiology and practical/political theology. BUT I DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THE PODCAST UNTIL LAST WEEK! I had to commute for a conference for the last three days to Burlington, On (basically Hamilton) and have been binging the podcast. Fitch’s energy is contagious and his breadth of knowledge is engaging and educative; combine that with Mike’s calmness and insightful questions makes for an excellent podcast on all things theology and mission.
If you’re a pastor, seminarian, or church leader/servant and desire to land your theology in the real world—this podcast is for you.
Canadians will appreciate Dave’s hockey comments.

The podcast

Theology on Mission podcast is a continuation and practice of meaningful dialogue and prophetic insight. From topics of sexuality, to rigorous deconstruction, to church politics and church practice, the podcast has maintained a consistent quality, refining a message that is engaging and in every way Christian.

Bringing Theology to You!

David Fitch brings you his raw thoughts as he himself explores the edge of his theological thoughts and challenges me each time to reconsider my preconceived ideas on God, mission and presence.

Being both Canadian and part of the CMA I feel a connection to David as he opens his life up.

Download, and listen as David and guests submit themselves to you week after week.
