S2E3 – Rev. Michael Beck – The power of words, tattoos, and AA


In episode 3 of season 2, Doug and J.R. have a conversation around the prayer of Examen and seeing God in both the good things and the tough things in ministry. Furthermore, it wouldn’t be Monday if we didn’t reference a fantastic Babylon bee article, check it out.

Our guest for this week is Rev. Michael Beck, who shares his story of redemption, soul care practices, denominational pressures, and passion for seeing people come to Jesus. He also talks about his work with Fresh Expressions US—in short: church in tattoo parlors, yoga studios, Moe’s, and dog parks. This is once again a conversation you don’t want to miss, plus, you know it’s going to be good when you hear beautiful statements like, “Jesus will save your soul, but AA will save your ass.”



  • What is one thing you can do that would be one step forward in caring for my physical body this week? When will you do it?

  • Is there a symbol, tattoo, or thing that you carry with you that is a way for you to share Christ?

  • What would it look like to not pick up the phone first thing in the morning?
