Great podcast. I love what Saturate is all about!
Disciple heart & soul food
My pastor had me read the saturate book and I loved it because of its simplicity and directness. Your podcast is a direct extension of the same spirit.
I am currently a Co-lead for a MC (we call them Home Communities) and It is so helpful to have you guys share from your growth and struggles. Every episode has both given me insight and encouragement. What an awesome way to reach out further to help the serving church. Keep up the great work!
Quality Missional content.
Brad and Jared are making disciples and leading churches of Missional communities and helping others to do the same. Worth a listen.
