Saturate is committed to seeing a gospel movement happen in North America and beyond in which every man, woman, and child have a daily encounter with Jesus in word and deed. This podcast is an ongoing conversation with disciples, leaders, and experts growing in the gospel and growing in living the implications of the gospel in community and on mission.
What We Measure While on the Mission
In this episode of the Saturate Podcast, Duke Revard talks with Jared Pickney on the critical role of metrics as we pursue the Great Commission together. People work on what you measure, people duplicate what you celebrate. Jared shares how they experienced their church increase 150% in annual baptisms by only changing one thing. If you're wondering what we should be measuring as churches on mission, this episode is for you.
Leading Yourself to Ongoing Personal Spiritual Renewal
In this episode of the Saturate Podcast, Duke Revard talks with Chuck Gschwend about leading yourself to ongoing spiritual renewal. Chuck has been on a multi-year, deep dive on all things Richard Lovelace's book Dynamics of the Spiritual Life. We talk about...
A vision for your ongoing renewal.
Preconditions/barriers to renewal.
Currency, or the kind of environments you'll need.
Fuel - the drive for ongoing renewal.
Practices - spiritual disciplines which make space to receive from God.
If you are looking to better lead yourself or others in your ministry to ongoing spiritual renewal, this episode is for you.

Discovering Distorted Images of God in Discipleship
In this episode of the Saturate Podcast, Duke Revard talks with Nathan Wagnon about discovering our distorted images of God and the gift of reforming people’s view of God. Discipleship is about communing with the living God and participating in His Kingdom, but the over-correction to intellectual resistance has led many to abandon the experiential reality of communing with God, for right thoughts about God. We hope this episode helps you consider how God is inviting you to see and experience Him more truly and fully.
Women's Ministry as Women's Discipleship
In this episode of the Saturate Podcast, Duke Revard talks with Amy Lathrop and Alison Martin about the important topic of women’s ministry as women’s discipleship. If we are to see Gospel Saturation, it will require us to mobilize the entire church, which certainly includes women. If you've experienced women’s ministry as theology-lite or overly simply content or if you just have a suspicion that there is more for women on Jesus’ mission, this episode is for you.
Training Elders in a Church of Missional Communities
In this episode of the Saturate Podcast, Duke Revard and Jeff Vanderstelt discuss developing elders in a church of missional communities. As go the leaders, so goes the church. This is no less true in a church of missional communities. Jeff and Duke answer the question, how do we ensure elders are qualified, equipped, and effective to lead the church? We hope this conversation gives you at least one next step to establish or strengthen your elder development process.
10 Lessons in 10 Years of Soma
In this episode of the Saturate Podcast, Duke Revard and Jeff Vanderstelt will be joined by Chris Gonzalez and Paul Dean. In 2020, we celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the Soma Family of Churches and we want to pause and look back and discuss what we have learned. Our conversation today asks the question, “what did you believe 10 years ago that you believe even more now?” Some things we were convinced of 10 year ago, some we were surprised by, some weren’t even in our awareness.
This podcast has really been a breath of fresh air for me. Thank you so much!
I re-discovered the Saturate Podcast a few months ago. I "happened" to start listening at the first episode of the BLESS series. I was immediately inspired and hungry to learn more and hear the rest of the series. I've since started listening to older episodes.
I really, really like the Saturate/Soma model of doing things. I appreciate the honesty and openness and unwillingness to just do church as usual. Saturate in general is a revolutionary beacon of hope for me, and the podcast inspires me as often as I listen to it.
Thank you, Brad and Saturate.
Please start a Soma church in Atlanta!
Because the missional community group model is so counter-cultural, it can often be very confusing and ambiguous to grasp. This podcast greatly helps in fleshing out how to live Christianity in the everyday stuff of life as a community.
