Welcome to the All Things to All People pocast with Michael Burns, biblical teacher in the Two Cities Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We want to help you become a more effective part of God's mission to gather and make disciples of all nations. That is not an easy mission and it demands that we will need to learn to become "all things to all people," as Paul puts it in 1 Corinthians 9:22. We will examine topics of culture, race, politics, and much more as we seek to put our discipleship into action in a complex world. To submit questions, suggestions, or give feedback please contact us at email@example.com.For more information on Michael's books or to purchase any of them, please go www.MichaelBurnsTeachingMinistry.com
