Candid conversations about Theology, Church, and Mission, hosted by Jay Kim and Isaac Serrano.

The Regeneration Podcast is a series of conversations with a variety of people - church leaders, authors, academics, creatives, and you - exploring some of today’s most confusing and difficult questions about the theology and mission of the Christian church.

Our aim is to create a thoughtful, interesting, and engaging dialogue that confronts the toughest questions, rather than shying away from them or ignoring them altogether. The podcast will feature some of the best and brightest people in their particular areas of emphasis, as well as episodes highlighting the untold stories of ways that God is using local churches across the country to inspire and invite new generations into his unfolding story.

The Regeneration Podcast is an extension of the Regeneration Project, in partnership with Western Seminary.

    Ep.037 - Jarrett Stevens | Praying Through Obstacles

    Ep.037 - Jarrett Stevens | Praying Through Obstacles

    On this episode, Jay and Isaac chat with Jarrett Stevens. Jarrett is a pastor, speaker, and author of several books, including The Deity Formerly Known As God and 4 Small Words. He and his wife Jeanne live in downtown Chicago, where they lead Soul City Church. On this episode, we chat with Jarrett about his latest book, Praying Through: Overcoming The Obstacles That Keep Us From God. Praying often seems like a futile endeavor. Most of the time, God seems silent and distant. But Jarrett suggests that, whether you know it or not, you're already better at prayer than you think. And even more importantly, God is closer, more attentive, and involved than you can imagine. We discuss these ideas, along with pragmatic steps we can take to praying through the obstacles that stand in our way.

    Ep.036 - John Mark Comer | The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry

    Ep.036 - John Mark Comer | The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry

    On this episode, Jay and Dan chat with John Mark Comer. John Mark is the Pastor for Teaching and Vision at Bridgetown Church in Portland, Oregon. He is also the author of several books including Loveology, Garden City, and God Has A Name. In this conversation, we discuss his latest book, The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry. So much of the root cause beneath the anger and anxiety of our cultural moment is in the hurried lives we live. But in order to pursue a life compatible with the way of Jesus, we must learn to eliminate the needless busyness of much of our everyday lives and replace it with a deep abiding in Christ, in each and every moment.

    Ep.035 - Mark Sayers | Reappearing Church

    Ep.035 - Mark Sayers | Reappearing Church

    On this episode, Jay and Isaac chat with Mark Sayers. Mark is the senior leader of Red Church in Melbourne, Australia and co-host of the podcast This Cultural Moment. He is also the author of several books, including Disappearing Church and Strange Days. On this episode, we discuss Mark’s latest book Reappearing Church. The current cultural climate poses never-before-seen challenges for followers of Jesus. The church-at-large, at least in the West, seems to be losing influence and effectiveness. And yet, Mark has a surprisingly hopeful view of what lies ahead. In this conversation, we delve into the specifics of why Mark believes we’re on the brink of a major renewal and what each and every one of us can do to take part in what God might be up to today.

    Ep.034 - Mike Winger | What Is The Apostolic Network & Why Does It Matter?

    On this episode, Jay and Isaac chat with Mike Winger. Mike is a pastor and also the featured teacher of BibleThinker online ministry. He is best known for his popular Youtube channel, which has more than 80,000 subscribers. His videos, which delve into various theological topics, have been viewed hundreds of thousands of times. On this episode, we discuss The Apostolic Network (what some call the New Apostolic Reformation), a movement of churches around the world that emphasizes prophecy and physical healings as primary means of experiencing God. We dive into a specific conversation about Bethel Church, one of the leading churches in this movement, and how their extremely popular music is impacting theology in so many of our churches today.

    Twitterology #6: Christianity - Religion or Relationship?

    Twitterology #6: Christianity - Religion or Relationship?

    On this episode, Jay, Isaac, Liz, and Chris chat about the ever so popular idea that, “Christianity is a relationship, not a religion.” But why is it that we so often pit “relationship” and “religion” against each other? Are they always and forever diametrically opposed? Or is it possible that there is goodness, beauty, and even a necessity within both ideas, that our faith is a relationship with God but also a religion, in the best sense of the word?

    Ep.032 - Andy Crouch | The Techwise Church

    Ep.032 - Andy Crouch | The Techwise Church

    On this special episode of the podcast, we’re sharing with you a part of an event we hosted in March 2019, featuring Andy Crouch. Andy is an author, speaker, and musician, who currently serves as the partner for theology and culture at Praxis, an organization that works as a creative engine for redemptive entrepreneurship. In this teaching, Andy applies some of the principles of his most recent book, The Techwise Family, to the local church. He addresses questions like, “How do we make and build disciples without accepting the promise of ease and instant gratification that technology offers? What should the church consider as we fast have adopted technology, online streaming and video venues?”

Really Great discussions about current culture and kingdom theology. They really drive home that us Christians need to dive deeper in the understanding of our faith more than ever. Now is the time we show the world how to live, how to love, and how to be human. Love what you guys are teaching us and how you encourage and inspire us with each topic you unpack.

Wish the show was more frequent, but I can bet you that is the goal. These things cost money and I get it. Let’s support these guys so they can do this more often!
