The COSILoveYou podcast creates intersections between the church and the city in and around the Pikes Peak region. Each month, COSILoveYou hosts conversations with civic, business, and faith leaders on issues and subjects impacting people in Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas. We aim to convene leaders in ways that establish collaborative partnerships, so that the faith community can be our city's greatest contributor to human flourishing.
City Series: City & County Clerk
“All politics is local politics.” This popular phrase has never become more scrutinized with the recent focus on election integrity, with local election officials around the country coming under increasing pressure. In this month’s episode, and as the wrap-up to our City Series, we’ll talk with the two officials who oversee our elections process - as well as many other details - for both Colorado Springs and El Paso County. Perhaps you didn’t realize the many ways that this out-of-the-way administrative position affected your everyday life.

City Series: City & County Government
Colorado Springs is the major city center of El Paso County, and operating a rapidly-growing city and county requires cooperation between city and county officials and departments. This conversation features Colorado Springs City councilwoman Nancy Henjum and El Paso County Commissioner Cami Bremer, talking about how local government works at both the city and county levels, and where they intersect. We also discuss the pressing issues on a growing community, and where local churches can work together to support our civic partners.
City Series: Colorado Springs & El Paso County Public Works
In this episode, we are continuing our “City Series” by interviewing two men whose work and responsibilities have more impact on the day-to-day lives of everyday citizens than perhaps any other. The Departments of Public Works in both the City of Colorado Springs and in El Paso County oversee some of the most basic, fundamental services that provide for the safety and health of our community. If you have ever driven on a road, crossed a bridge, or wondered what happens when snow melts off your driveway in our community, you have these guys to thank for figuring that out. If you think there isn’t much overlap between what Public Works provides and what the local church does in our city, you may be in for a surprise.
City Series: Colorado Springs Fire Department
This is the first episode in our upcoming 4-part series we’re simply calling the “City Series.” We want to help listeners understand the roles and functions of some of the many city services - and the people who lead them - that have an impact on our everyday lives. In this first episode, we interview Randy Royal and Jayme McConnellogue with the Colorado Springs Fire Department. While it’s easy to understand the first-responder nature of any local Fire Department, there is much more that happens behind the scenes to keep our city safe and care for its people. We also talk about the very real impact that working in emergency services has on these local heroes.
Faith in the Marketplace (w/ Yemi Mobolade, David Leinweber, Joel Malick)
In this episode of the COSILoveYou podcast, we’ll sit down with 3 men who operate in very different arenas of the local marketplace to talk about the intersection of faith and business. While businesses operated by faith-driven owners or leaders often have faith-centered values and principles behind their operations, there are everyday challenges that can lead to these owners feeling confused about how to bring their faith to work. Specifically, we’ll discuss the hidden challenges of operating a business from a place of faith in ways that benefit employees, clients, and customers without making them feel objectified or judged. We’ll also give you a preview of some ways that COSILoveYou hopes to convene more of these conversations around faith & business in the coming months.

In Search of the Common Good (w/ Dave Runyon of CityUnite)
In our first episode of 2022, we take a step back from issues in Colorado Springs and have a conversation with Dave Runyon, Director of CityUnite in Denver, Colorado. The author of The Art of Neighboring talks about the importance of loving your literal neighbors, the challenges and joys of collaborating with government leaders, and what it looks like to pursue "The Common Good" with those we may not always agree.

Important For Community
I am so thankful to have found this podcast. I am planning to relocate to Colorado Springs after feeling called to serve in that community. This podcast covers important topics in the Colorado Springs community and provides opportunities for people to serve and love on those around them who may be hurting and in need of a helping hand. This is what we were designed to do as humans… especially those of us who are Christ followers.
