Great, informative, approachable
These guys put out great info in a way that’s down to earth and approachable, like a casual audited class at church. Give it a listen
A very informative overview of IBF history and other issues the church is facing. I also love the preaching inserts you add. It nails down your point.
Jon is doing a great service to the church with this podcast by exposing the depth and reach of abuse within the IFB movement. He speaks with passion that is still filled with grace, and he has a clear burden for those who have been abused. If you are or were in an IFB church then be sure to subscribe.
