The Back Pew is the place for those either wandering in or heading out of the Church. We welcome raw and unfiltered conversations about the reality of our spiritual lives. It's also a safe space to vent, laugh at inappropriate comments, learn from those on the other side of the aisle, and grow into spiritually mature individuals without ever taking ourselves too seriously. Hosted by Dan Prevette, a bartending missionary kid, and Colton Simmons, an intentionally irreverent seminary grad.
