Catching Jesus is a podcast about normal people doing Jesus stuff. If you’re anything like me, you second guess yourself all the time. You’re following Jesus the best way you know how, but you still don’t think you could ever do anything significant for the kingdom of God. But I think you’re wrong. The truth is that God only made one of you, so you're the only one who can do what you can do. In this podcast, I hope to encourage you on your journey by hearing stories of other people who have caught a kingdom vision for their lives and are doing the Jesus stuff.

    John Secunda - The Way of Men

    Whether you're a man yourself, are raising a man, or have men in your life, John has great insights on the burdens men carry, the cost of not dealing with them, and how we might move forward into healthy masculinity. John worked for over 30 years at NBC television, pursuing all the wrong things until he re-evaluated his life in his 40's and began to reinvest in his relationship with Jesus. He has since devoted this half of his life to helping encourage men to be intentional in every domain of their lives.
