S4E3 – Michael Frost – Mission, Stories, and Preaching

J.R. and I owe a ton of our ecclesiological instincts and convictions to our guest Michael Frost.  Both of us recall reading his book “The Shaping of Things to Come” and having our hearts and minds open to what it means to be on mission with Christ in a post-Christendom world. This episode is like a modern-day epistle that is pastoral, encouraging, equipping, and challenging.  Although this doesn’t feel like your normal MMP we know this is one that many will come back to in the months and years to come.  We hope you are encouraged by this conversation.
