This podcast will transport listeners all around the world, hearing inspiring stories of the Church in action. During each episode, I will host a guest who has significantly contributed to the legacy of Mission at Elmbrook Church. Their stories will immerse listeners in diverse locations: from hospitals in India, to refugee camps in Bangladesh; from the Amazon rainforest, to your very own hometown. Rest assured, "What in the World?" listeners will not just be bystanders to God's work. Each episode will equip and encourage the audience to contribute to the legacy of faith.

Excellent thought provoking content. Expands my world, challenges my assumptions, and inspires me to live for God. As a former field worker myself, I LOVE this podcast. What will the next cultural blunder be?!?
I just listened to the podcast and I really liked it. You do a good job of being yourself. No pretenses, no nervousness, Very natural and appropriate. I liked the historical minute, and the pause to say thank you caught my attention and will be remembered. Thanks for sharing the podcast with us.
