Just two pastors from New Jersey separated by a 25-year age gap and a couple mics.

Donnie and Joe's unique perspectives on current events, the modern church, and world issues, combined with their similar roles as pastors and dads, create the basis of each episode. Generational differences humorously collide as wisdom and experience meets youth and energy.

But this isn't just another commentary on the state of the world; instead it's centered on understanding the core problems in this mad world, tackling the issues with Biblical solutions, and making a better future for the next generation.

Mad Sunday

Very thought provoking

It is very encouraging to see two men that don’t want to just get by in life and take care of their families. They want to use their knowledge and experience to not only help the younger generations. But help the older generations understand the younger generations, that way we can all hopefully come together and make a difference in this “Mad World”

Change

Every youth, parent, teacher, grandparents... everyone who cares about the young generation should tune into these messages. Coming from a “bridge perspective” - two generations that shares the love of God, sharing the realities of a young generation that is on the way of impacting a third generation. Can’t wait for the next Podcast.
