    2023 Wrap Up

    2023 Wrap Up

    We finish 2023 with some final thoughts on the events of the year including where we've seen God move in our lives, things that we want to focus on going into 2024, and how we plan to be "On Mission". We also discuss the recent passage of Issue 1 in Ohio. What that means for Christians and how we need to extend everyone grace while still holding firmly to Biblical truths.

    2 Truths and a Lie with Pastor Jarrod Williams

    2 Truths and a Lie with Pastor Jarrod Williams

    Our first three-time guest is back on the mics with us - Pastor Jarrod Williams! We kick off the episode with the classic game - 2 truths and a lie - with some pretty hilarious results.

    Then we dig into some more serious topics including Alpha Course, Jarrod's recent pastoral sabbatical, counseling, and finish up the episode with some discussion on lies that we all tell ourselves.

    Our thoughts on: The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry

    The Core4 are finally back together again! We sit down to discuss John Mark Comer's book, The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry. It's a challenging read that pushes back against some of the prevailing attitudes in our culture right now when it comes to success, drive, and time management. Do we think hurry should be ruthlessly eliminated? Tune in to find out!

    On Mission with Dan Blechschmid

    On Mission with Dan Blechschmid

    Dan Blechschmid volunteered to serve with Samaritan's Purse on their Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART) after hearing our past guest, Brock Kreitzberg, talk about the work that they were doing. He shared with us his history and heart for missions, both domestic and international, as well as some of the most impactful stories that he saw while deployed in war-torn Ukraine.

    A Note from Dan:


    To my friends from Samaritan’s Purse – As said in the podcast, while I am a huge fan, I am not an official spokesperson for Samaritan’s Purse so comments in the cast do not officially represent Samaritan’s Purse the organization, but I hope you agree I tried my best to speak consistent with the mission of our great organization.    Please also know that before I agreed to do the podcast, I did contact and receive permission from Samaritan’s Purse media relations and they with security to ensure that this was permitted.  I pray for you and thank God for you each day, and for the amazing and selfless work that you do to share the love of Jesus Christ around the world! 
    To my family, my friends, my church, and my work – I don’t think I officially said “thank you” in the pod cast.   The unexpected and sheer volume of support received through hundreds of prayers, comments, texts, emails were so very much appreciated – more than you will ever know.   THANK YOU does not come close to covering it but that’s all I have.   Now I also have to be so bold as to ask one more thing of you.   Please continue to pray for and support missionaries, mission workers, deployed Samaritan’s Purse staff for their safety, and for their continued success in sharing the love of Jesus wherever they are serving.

    The Rise and Fall of the Church: Our thoughts on The Rise & Fall of Mars Hill Podcast

    The Rise and Fall of the Church: Our thoughts on The Rise & Fall of Mars Hill Podcast

    The Core 4 sit down to discuss Christianity Today's The Rise & Fall of Mars Hill podcast. The group comes at the podcast from 2 different sides with some of us not having any experience with Mark Driscoll's ministry beforehand, and some of us being impacted by his ministry previously. The conversation is spirited and lively as we try to unpack the question: "Do the ends justify the means?"

Real Discourse

Core4 hosts a great show. They had me on to discuss “The Critical State of Education,” and the guys led a great discussion. This is a show that isn’t afraid of objective truth.
