    Apologetics, Evangelism, and Revival in Norway: Nahum O’Brien and Edvard Moe Explain

    Apologetics, Evangelism, and Revival in Norway: Nahum O’Brien and Edvard Moe Explain

    The Power of God in Missions

Best Missions Podcast

I can’t say enough amazing things about this podcast. I have recently been convicted about missions and the imbalance of money and missionaries being sent to the unreached vs the reached. We are interested in helping to change the culture within our local church and bring the gospel to the nations. This podcast is helping equip us to do that. It’s balanced and makes me think hard about the issues and the task we’re facing. Just well done straight to the point content packed with great interviews. Thank you!
