Have you ever just wanted someone to walk alongside you as you do the thing - the thing that makes your heart come alive and leaves our world more like Jesus than we found it?
I’m a girl wildly passionate about cheering on my friends in the pursuit of making God known through their unique calling.
So, buckle up, because I’ll gather up my favorite seasoned and rising leaders in their fields to share inspirational stories, strategic advice and hard-won wisdom. I’m your host Rebecca Dotson George and welcome to the Do The Thing Movement Podcast!
082. Dating Has Changed with JP Pokluda
JP is lead pastor of Harris Creek Baptist Church in Waco, Texas, and former leader of The Porch, where he saw the ministry grow from 150 to more than 7,000 young adults. The author of the bestselling Welcome to Adulting, as well as the Welcome to Adulting Survival Guide and Welcoming the Future Church, Pokluda came to understand the grace of the gospel in his early twenties, which ignited a desire in him to reach people in their twenties and thirties for Christ. He lives with his wife, Monica, and their three children.
