Welcome to the FaithCoach podcast! We believe that parents are the head coaches when it comes to helping kids grow in their faith. The purpose of this podcast is to give you ideas you can use to coach your child’s growing faith. We believe God’s plan is to talk to our kids about our faith as we go about the daily routines of life. Therefore, our focus is to give you tips and tools you can fit in with the routines you already have. You are the head coach; we are here to assist! Together we can coach your child’s growing faith!
FaithCoach is a ministry of Meadowbrook Baptist Church and is hosted by Amy Castello (Family Pastor), Ty Gist (Student Pastor) and Marcy Smith (Children's Pastor).

Great for all parents
Such great relatable advice for parents! The podcasters feel like they’re my friends already!
Parents, you want to listen to this!
This is the perfect blend of humor and solid, practical advice. I feel like I’m sitting down and having a conversation with friends rather than being preached at. The topics and advice are real and applicable to my life and my kids’ lives, and they just make sense! I look forward to hearing the new episode every week!
Great listen for parents!
Love it! They hit the right balance between being light & meaningful. As a former coach wife, the coaching metaphor really hits home. Can’t wait to hear future topics and see where this goes!
