    House Church and the City Table: Living out the Gospel

    House Church and the City Table: Living out the Gospel

    Imagine a movement in your city where a table becomes the setting to gather together, pray, and learn the ways of the Kingdom. The New Testament Church is simple. The Church is not an institution but an inclusive family that identifies all believers as “the Church”: business people, housewives, educators, children, and civil leaders. We are a reflective representation of Christ on the earth—together.  In today's episode we will hear from our friends Matt Hulst and David Swensen, working together in Denver to incubate expressions of church near Denver University. Their house church Coram Deo is contextualizing the gospel in the city.

    Knowing Your City (Interview: Ben Woollard)

    How do you truly get to know your city? Prayer for our cities downloads God’s heart for our cities and that heart is the engine for coming to know our cities. Today we hear from our friend Ben Woollard, chair of Together for Sheffield in Sheffield, England. Ben relays his journey to know his city, serve his city with his team, and see tangible transformation by the people of God for their neighbors.

    Prayer: Interview with Renee Boucher

    Prayer: Interview with Renee Boucher

    Not much happens without the communication between heaven and earth - prayer! It comes in all shapes, styles and forms, but at the end of the day it is the fuel of transformation. Ken and Jon sit down with Renee Boucher; known in her city of Portland, Oregon as the “mother of prayer.” Renee is a rich resource for the prayer and unity that every city is being called to incarnate.

    Amsterdam: A Blueprint for Cities

    Amsterdam: A Blueprint for Cities

    Twenty-eight years after Jon and Mindy left Amsterdam, the city is beginning to experience a spiritual renaissance. Churches are working together, the poor and the immigrant being tended to, and spiritual and material needs are being addressed. In this episode we look at the blueprint the Father has given the leaders in the city, and how the ingredients of this plan are readily transferable to others seeking to see their cities transformed. We will travel the signposts on this pathway more closely in following episodes.

Definitely worth listening to AND sharing :)

This is one my favorite podcasts at the moment. The first season should be required listening for all disciples of Jesus much less those in vocational ministry. It does a great job of laying healthy foundations. Looking forward to season 2!
