EM121 Scott Casteel Face QuoteSometimes, the path God leads us on takes an unexpected turn. That's a bit of an understatement for this week's guest, Scott Casteel – he was the pastor of a small church, which became even smaller under his leadership.

After hearing about Four Fields and other forms of church planting, Scott wanted to see that take shape in his community. He's begun using the principles and loves discipling others to share the Good News of Jesus. And he believes they are exactly where God would have them and is excited about what God is doing.

    Personally, I recommend the Bible. Just about any translation. You can't go wrong to have God's word available when you're driving to work, out for a walk, or working out. It's what I did when I joined Audible over 7 years ago.
