    Ep. 24, Interview with Tyler St. Clair on dealing with the grind and insecurity of pastoring + race & the Church

    Ep. 24, Interview with Tyler St. Clair on dealing with the grind and insecurity of pastoring + race & the Church

    Noah interviews Tyler St. Clair on his church planting journey in the inner city of Detroit, MI. Tyler is the lead pastor of Cornerstone Church Detroit in Detroit, Michigan. He also serves as the network lead for Church in Hard Places in Acts 29’s S. Midwest Network. Tyler talks about dealing with the grind of pastoring and church planting, and the insecurity that most pastors deal with in wanting larger ministries or more recognition. This insecurity is similar to what every person faces in that we all look for something to give us our value, approval, and acceptance...all the things Jesus offers to us in the gospel when we know we our identity as the Father's beloved sons and daughters.

    Ep. 23: State of the Podcast + How to Live for Christ in this Messed Up World

    The first annual State of the Podcast talks about the Flip Side Podcast Survey and some upcoming improvements to the podcast.  Topic of the day is how to live for Christ in this messed up world. How to stop from being gradually assimilated into the world's way of operating, particularly around the around of sex, but also in how we view Scripture and our overall worldview. 
    Noah's Rant addresses the "shake a hand with a neighbor" time during many church services.

    Ep. 21: Depression, Elf on a Shelf, and get $1 every time Noah says "like"

    Ep. 21: Depression, Elf on a Shelf, and get $1 every time Noah says "like"

    Ep. 21 talks about depression, and depression within the Church specifically.  Why we don't talk about it enough and why we need to talk about it more.  And in general, the Church's hesitation to talk about anything that is vulnerable or deals with our struggles.  
    Noah's Rant gets into how much people say "like," including Noah himself, and offers you a chance to earn a $1 every time Noah says "like" on the podcast from here on how (legal fine print: starting in episode 22!)
    Also make sure you get a say on what Flip Side listeners will be called, as the leader in the clubhouse is the Flippopotamuses!

    Ep. 20: Interview with Jason Redoutey on Vulnerability and Grace Overcoming Shame and Addiction

    Ep. 20: Interview with Jason Redoutey on Vulnerability and Grace Overcoming Shame and Addiction

    Noah catches up with Jason Redoutey on how encountering the affirming love of God satisfied Jason's lifelong quest for approval and affirmation.  A quest that led him to a double life of porn, lies, womanizing, and cheating in his marriage.  Shame was once the ruler in Jason's life, shame that has been replaced by love and grace, found through vulnerability.  Jason now helps other men find this same overwhelming love of God as one of the directors of Hearts, Alive, and Free.

Well said

Noah Filipiak and Joseph Bataille were very helpful to me. The conversation was very helpful and insighful. I learned much. This episode is one of Noah's best.

A rare insight into the not so glamorous life of ministry

Huge fan of this podcast! Noah really connect the listeners to the everyday real-life struggles of authors, athletes, musicians, pastors, and more. It is both refreshing and encouraging to be able to relate and connect with the guests on the podcast through the interviews conducted on the show. Would recommend to anyone interested in or involved with ministry and leadership.
