Church Planter Collective Podcast


The Church Planter Collective has been talking about Advent. I still don't really get what Advent is or is about. Dr. Brannon Hancock, Professor of Practical Theology and Worship at Wesley Seminary joins us to help answer some questions. What is Advent (arrival)...What is it about (preparation)...How can it be practiced...all come up in today's final podcast about Advent and Worship in the Church Plant.

Join Dr. Nate Crawford, Director of Here/Hear, an organization supporting people living with mental illness--to hear about potential ideas, resources, and encouragement in this Advent/Christmas season.

Advent and Christmas provide great opportunities for outreach and gratitude. But how do we balance excellence with shrinking bandwidth? How do we communicate family in larger groups? Listen in as Aaron Saenz shares part of his journey and the efforts of the church he leads this season.
