This week’s episode of Engaging Missions is one you won’t want to miss! Our guest, Andrea (pen name for security reasons), discusses the power of telling the stories of Scripture in reaching people for Christ. She and Bryan talk about the Fall of Man in Genesis 3, the steadfast love of God, and the impact storytelling has on people.

Andrea currently leads a ministry that implements discussion-based ministry and Bible study to deepen people’s faith. She has seen amazing things that God has done through this ministry, and hearing her stories (both of Scripture and the ministry) are truly encouraging.
