Here & There Podcast S02E20 - Christian Campiness - April 30, 2016

April 30, 2016

Heigh ho, heigh ho it's off to camp we go! How many of you were saved, baptized and kissed for the first time at Christian camp? How many of you love Christian holidays and the safe environment they provide. How many of you think both of these notions are crazier than By-Law of the PAOC constitution? 

Wait, that's for another podcast...

Whatever side of the fence you might be on, we guarantee this podcast will have something for you. Matt, Shel and Anna talk Christian camps, romance, missional marketplaces and even give a shout out to Vanuatu. Summer is almost here which means you can listen to the podcast as you garden, jog, do yoga outside or enjoy Montreal while you are at General Conference.

Here & There Podcast S02E19 - The Rodcast or Birkmanize This! - April 22, 2016

April 22, 2016

Are you a beaver? What's your four letters? What colour of ministry are you? Are you an airy sanguine or a fiery choleric? What's your sign baby?

Our ability to be self-aware is greater than ever before thanks to online tests, breakthroughs in psychology and just a general understanding that the more we know, the better we can become. In this podcast we talk to Global Worker Rodney Corcoran about the Birkman Assessment. Rodney is a certified facilitator in one of the best behavioural and strengths assessments out there. He has taken hundreds of people through the insightful and powerful assessment and shares his experience and wisdom with us about it.

Why does this matter, you might ask? What does it have to do with global work? Rodney answers these and other questions about the need to know ourselves, how it can help us be more effective in ministry and how to start operating from a place of strength and confidence. We guarantee that after this short but powerful podcast you will want to get a hold of Rodney so he can Birkmanize you or you will just want to know more about how God has designed you.
