    Gregg Hinzelman, Author of "What Are You Trusting God For?"

    Gregg Hinzelman, Author of "What Are You Trusting God For?"

    Gregg Hinzelman is an American-born Baylor University alum who currently works with Canada's arm of Campus Crusade for Christ, which is called Power to Change. Gregg has written a book called "What Are You Trusting God For?" which both paints a compelling Kingdom vision for Christians to buy into AND is exceedingly practical in how an everyday Christian can take steps toward greater Kingdom impact.  He has mentored The CC Podcast's host, Matt Reisetter, in their work together with Power to Change Digital Strategies. This conversation about digital strategy and his book will encourage and challenge any Christian to think bigger and become more focused on using their time and resources to advance God's Kingdom here on earth.

Surprised!

I am surprised at how drawn in I have become to these interviews. Once I start listening, I can’t stop til it’s over!

Authentic

These interviews are genuine, if not raw at times, which I think is great. Honesty and authenticity are inspirational and impactful.

Great interviews

At first I thought a 90 minute interview (they’re not all 90 min) would be too long. But they fly by! (And you can speed them if you want, which I’ve noticed works well and is easy to follow.)
