Petracast is an opportunity for you to sit in on a conversation between Petra Church pastors and leaders as they discuss some of life's deep questions, as well as the role of the church as we engage with our culture. And you might get a chuckle or two along the way! Whether you attend Petra Church or not, this podcast is for everyone.
#171 Digging in the Dirt is Spiritual
What simple, seemingly mundane thing has God placed in your life that He can use to build His kingdom? The first man on earth was a farmer and a gardener. Les Yoder talks about the spirituality of farming, and how God uses his expertise in Agriculture to reach ex-communist countries with the gospel. We also talk about his journey with cancer and how it clarified his life purpose.
#170 Mom, Jobs, Kids, & Social Media
Moms with young children have an incredibly demanding job. We talk with the leader of the Lipstick & Crayons at Petra about what quality time looks like for her family; how to nurture authenticity in relationships; and how to care for your soul with so many demands and distractions.
#169 Faith in History: The Real Braveheart
William Wallace is the medieval Scottish patriot who was spurred into revolt against English tyranny. In this conversation pastor Gary Buck and his brother Chris separate myth from fact and discuss the real William Wallace and the role that faith played in his life.
#168 Sit, Walk, Stand
In this short episode we'll recollect one of the teachings of Chinese Pastor Watchman Nee. Two of his books continue to impact Western Christianity in profound ways--the Normal Christian Life, and Sit, Walk, Stand. We'll talk about his book Sit, Walk, Stand.
#167 Five Habit Values that Drive Petra Leaders
These five habit-values are the finger print of what makes Petra unique. They are what we want to reproduce in our leaders, and our spiritual children. This is a teaching that pastor Lester gave in September of this year to all of Petra's ministry leaders.
#166 Back to Prison
Ryan Forbes was a menace to society. Dangerous. Multiple felonies. Assaulted police officers. Used every drug you could think of to fill the abandonment in his life. Then on a Father's Day, while standing in his jail cell, he had a spiritual encounter with his Heavenly Father that changed his life forever. Now, after twelve years, he is a completely transformed man, and the Lord sent him back to prison, this time to minister to the inmates.
