Being Bold and Bringing Hope to the Lost

Episode 235 - Jacob

There are many people in the world who are lost and have never heard of Jesus. Asia has some of the largest unreached people groups and Jacob, our guest, plans to minister there.

Growing up, Jacob had a plan to do youth ministry for a long time, but God had other plans. He and his wife are now preparing for their long term mission work in Asia.

As he shares his plans for missions, Jacob talks about the importance of boldness. By being bold, believers can better share the Gospel to those who are lost. And when Christians are willing to walk in obedience to the Lord, they can bring transformation to their communities.

Jacob brings encouragement and passion to this episode, and you won’t want to miss it!

Glorious Faith: A Chef, Discipleship, and Life

Episode 234 - Cory Rasco
Cory's Website

Cory Rasco was living the life he wanted. He was the head chef at a restaurant and was loving life. Sure, there were some things about his background that he would have preferred would have been different.

But then he met God and discovered that there was so much more. Healing, calling, purpose, and love. He walked away from that job and didn’t cook professionally for about 2 years and felt called to go to India.

But then God redirected him again. Now he’s engaged and is a bivocational church planter and chef. He’s started a church in his apartment with people he wouldn’t have chosen. But God is doing AMAZING things and Cory is absolutely loving what he’s seen God do.
