This is Part 1 of a conversation with Keri Ladouceur, a pastor in Naperville, Illinois and founder and lead coach at New Ground Network. The conversation Anthony had with Keri touched on so many important points and is therefore split into two episodes. In this first episode they speak about what it means to establish goodness cultures that truly mean that what we are multiplying is the the culture of the Kingdom.
In this first part of the conversation, Anthony and Keri also speak about abuses of power, the need for persuasive arguments for people but equally the need to create safe spaces for people to wrestle with their faith and contend with their own questions and meet with the Holy Spirit as they enter and grow in their relationship with Jesus.
Be sure to subscribe to the podcast for Part 2 of this conversation also coming next week where they dig deeper into these points and much more.
