Weekly encouragement for living!
Every week the Church Requel Audio Podcast provides a great listening experience. Pastor Mark Pierce shares his own experiences as a pastor, a dad, a husband, and a former investment adviser. The first hour is very conversational focused on a different weekly topic. The last half hour includes the sermon from the Sunday before at Church Requel.
Refreshing, Encouraging, and Inspiring!
This podcast welcomes the week for me every Monday. The podcast helps me remain "plugged in" versus coasting through my week on auto-pilot. Mark gives me an opportunity to bring focus to my week with the sermon, the anecdotes, and the discussion on current events. This is a must-listen for believers and unbelievers alike!
Great Weekly Church podcast
I love this podcast! The beginning is what is happening in the world and in Pastor Mark's life and the second part is straight from the Bible preaching, Perfect for if you are snowed in for church and you need some encouragement and teaching from the word for the week!
