Auggment ,

Great conversation

This is a podcast from a pastor sitting and letting other youth pastors talk about where they have been. It’s great
To see how God is using all these pastors. Highly recommend listening every month

Allisoneliza ,

Great wisdom from people you might not have heard from

I really enjoy the interviews in this podcast. Steve does a great job highlighting folks that no one else is talking to. These guests often give awesome wisdom and insight from the trenches of ministry. Keep up the great conversations!

AndrewJamesLarsen ,

Great conversations with a greater purpose

Steve does a fantastic job of using the stories that individual youth workers tell, to tap into the greater narrative of how to beat reach students. The show is fun but weighty at the same time, and well worth your time.
