Practical, Engaging, Challenging
As a senior in college involved in ministry to Gen Z around me everyday as well as those younger, this podcast has been incredibly helpful. It has helped me to realize the shaping factors of our worldview as Christians in this generation as well as the unbelievers. It has challenged me to adapt in order to love better.
I appreciate the resources offered whether through practical applications, recommendations, programs (such as Go2), and particular interviews.
