Insightful and inspiring

Biblically sound and practical. Great resource for struggling ministers or anyone who needs encouragement. I know Pastor Stan and Josh personally and can truly say they are genuine. Pastor Stan truly has a passion for discipleship and for seeing God’s kingdom thrive.

The Best

Insightful, entertaining, enjoyable, thought-provoking, inspirational... and all the other positive adjectives I can’t think of right now.
