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.

I lead a campus ministry and I find this podcast very insightful and I recommend this to many people. I really have a high value of your perspective Michael!
All things to all people
I love this podcast. I started reading the book which was so eye opening and convicting. I never realized that culture could separate even with a household as well as in the same race. Listing to the podcast has helped me enjoy learning even more because you get to hear the authors perspective as well as the guest. Awesome and so helpful to the changes that need to take place in my life.
A Must listen for ANYONE in church leadership!
I first became acquainted with Micheal Burns at one of his “Crossing the Lines” workshops based on his book - that was honestly ground-breaking for myself (a white, Millennial woman in full-time ministry). I really attribute that weekend to helping me officially begin my anti-racist work. When I found out Burns was starting a podcast on his new book, I knew that I needed to check it out and continue to learn from his unique and insightful perspective. I love that this podcast not only focuses on understanding racial differences, but cultural and generational ones as well. Burns’ books and podcast are helping ME to be a better leader, more equipped to meet the needs of our ever-changing times! A true MUST-LISTEN for anyone in church leadership (including youth and college ministry!)!
