I am a Guest on the Discovering God Podcast

Discovering God Podcast with Rip Wahlberg and Jeff McLain
For the past few weeks, I have been a regular guest on the Discovering God Podcast that is hosted by Rip Wahlberg. This well done video and audio podcast is excellently produced by Blake Wahlberg, and covers a diversity of topics related to the church and the scriptures. It is the hope of this podcast to take aspects of discipleship online.

For those of you that do not know, Rip Wahlberg and I have been good friends over the past decade. Our friendship formed as we both invested our time on the Leadership Team at the Lancaster Vineyard Church in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Additionally, years later, our family would settle for a season into Sanctuary (A Vineyard Church) where Rip was the Lead Pastor. In that season, Katie and I joined the Transition Team, and I also served on the Preaching Team. Though our friendship has spanned both of those shared experiences, it was in these collaborative efforts that we learned of our similar but also different approaches to church and the scriptures. 

The Discovering God Podcast is meant to be a thoughtful and intentional approach to conversations around the scriptures and the church, especially for those who may not have access to a local church community. Overall, the podcast is designed to create a space where thinking seekers can encounter God by exploring the scriptures and the teachings of Jesus. As an engaging host, Rip Wahlberg provides practical and relevant insights to encourage growth for individuals in their faith journey. Rip's passion for helping others develop an informed and personal relationship with Jesus is evident in his conversations.

In a world where people are seeking answers about the meaning of life, purpose, and peace, it has been a lot of fun to join this podcast. For me, as someone who is dedicated to thinking differently about Jesus, life and everything in between - being a guest on this podcast has given me a place to help inspire some new thoughtful and conversational fodder on faith, Jesus and the church.

I encourage you to take some time and watch the four episodes that I have appeared on below. The video editions of these conversations are available on YouTube. You can also listen and subscribe to the audio edition of the podcast through BuzzSprout.
