A New Thing is a podcast about new faith communities. It's about those that have the courage to start new communities. It's about the 'how' and 'why' and 'for whom' in regards to new expressions of the Church. I talk with these leaders, and those who inspire and inform what they do.

One of my favorite podcasts
I’m so glad this is back!
Time For A New Thing
God constantly calls us to be doing a new thing.
Listen to Jason coax out the insights of his spirit-driven guests about the new things they have been inspired to do and the faith that won’t let them do any my thing else.
A Call to Action
Jason is more than a storyteller. He is an advocate. In each podcast, he passes the mic to someone doing something new. Jason spends most of his time listening, allowing his guests to share their stories. This means that we, the listeners, get to hear what others are doing. We receive ideas and inspiration that help us to rise to the occassion and respond to Jason's call to action: Go Make Something.
