Praying for Boldness: How to Share the Gospel Without Fear in Church PlantingEpisode 184 - Braden Olsen
Our guest today, Braden Olsen, is changing the atmosphere of his college campus in Florida. He, along with other believers, work to spread the Gospel of Jesus and to disciple people in their community. He hopes to see many students across campus come to know Jesus.
With boldness and determination, Braden seeks to share the Gospel to as many people as possible. He has already planted a church on his campus, which they call “Dorm Church.” In the interview, he emphasizes the importance of reading the Bible and being obedient to God in all things. Through this humble submission to God, Braden has seen students receive the salvation God gives.
