    19 | When Devastation Identifies the First Responder in You with Gordon & Tracy Neitling

    19 | When Devastation Identifies the First Responder in You with Gordon & Tracy Neitling

    When Whatcom County experienced record-breaking floods in 2021, our friends Gordon & Tracy experienced devastating loss as water engulfed the bottom floor of their home.
    With 32 years as a firefighter for the City of Bellingham, Gordon was no stranger to natural disasters, but experiencing it himself changed everything.
    You’ll love the Neitling’s unique perspective in this incredible conversation – both serving the community and how their community showed up to serve them. It’s a beautiful story of hope amidst devastating circumstances, and we know that you will be so encouraged!

    16 | Getting Unstuck: Discovering Who God Created You to Be

     So often, we feel stuck in the repeatable, familiar patterns of life. We have a vision for who we want to be, but don’t know how to get there.

    In this episode, guest-hosted by Drew Young & Missy Matteson, we have an authentic conversation with our good friends Matt Dealy & Stacy Koning around what it means to get unstuck and grow in our walk with God and others.

    If you have felt like you don't know how to grow or move forward, our prayer is that our collection of shared experiences and stories inspires you to grow, to step out, and invite people into your story.

    In this inspiring conversation, we're joined by our good friends Sam Middlebrook & Debbie Chavez as they share their unique battles with COVID.

We're so grateful for their candor and willingness to share these difficult moments with us. 

    You'll walk away with a fresh perspective on the things that truly matter and insight on where to turn when life gets hard. It's our prayer that you will find confidence in God's strength, wisdom, power, and compassion in every word of this conversation.
