THE SLOW DOWN is a podcast hosted by everyday people who are navigating life and discipleship by the seat of their pants and the grace of God. We take an unfiltered look at how the finished work of Jesus has set us free from the exhausting madness of trying to fix our lives and the lives of others. Listen in on our ongoing dialogue concerning the simple, but rather hard realities that accompany the practice of extending the freedom and family of Jesus to those we encounter. This is our open confessional of how we've fallen short, and our stories of what God has taught us along the way. The mission Jesus has invited us into needs honest, helpful, and hopeful dialogue… and we intend to give it our best shot with this podcast.

    Leadership, pt2

    In part 2 of the discussion, Russ and Tony continue to look at the myth of church leadership. There is a lot that is common in our western church culture that isn’t always biblical. Could those things be doing more damage than good to the church’s purpose in the world?

    SIGNALS.7 Addition By Subtraction

    SIGNALS.7 Addition By Subtraction

    SDP_SIGNALS_07 || From the beginning of this podcast, let's go ahead and apologize. We hope your love and grace are able to come together to forgive us for what we've done. So here it goes: we're sorry we called sushi and ramen Chinese food. We are well aware that those are of Japanese culinary-descent. Now that we've gotten that out of the way, you are invited to sit in on this conversation between Tony and Ryan where they finish out the Signals series. The last thing we've observed in gospel movements among those outside and uninterested in the church is that there are leaders involved who are not afraid to send equipped people out, and in doing so, shrink or let go of their own movements. When faith-driven leaders are more concerned with the spreading of the good news than the maintenance of their own establishment, great things can happen. Listen in!

    SIGNALS.6 Gather As Needed

    SDP_SIGNALS_06 || Let's say, hypothetically, that Russ snuck into somewhere he wasn't supposed to be...do you think he'd have time to record a whole podcast without getting caught? Today, we find out! Rushing into the conversation, the guys talk about the idea of gathering those who are walking in the way of Jesus, and what it should look like according to what we see in scripture. Do you need a building? Do you need a pastor or a sermon? What about music? How simple can you really make it? And at the end of the day, what really is the point of a regular gathering? All this and more on this episode of The Slow Down Podcast.
