How to Sow Seeds of Good News in the World

Episode 209 - Mark McGoldrick

Connections can be crucial in bringing people to Jesus. Our guest, Mark McGoldrick, shares stories of how he has built relationships with people through working with Cru over the last 30 years. From millennials to marketplace managers, Mark shares the story of Jesus and sees lives transformed. These transformational stories have led to more people coming to follow Christ.

Even when he is not working with Cru, Mark tells people about the Gospel wherever he goes, even at the gym. During the show, he reminds us that even our hobbies can be used to expand the Kingdom of God. Through those hobbies, we can connect with people and show them the love of Jesus.
