Life in the Kingdom Podcast

How should Christians view everything that’s happening in this world? The Life in the Kingdom Podcast aims to tackle that question by addressing not only the what, but also the how, why and where do we go from here. We want to come alongside you and discuss the issues you’re discussing, ask the questions you’re asking, interview the persons you’re interested in, and highlight stories that get you thinking. In so doing, we hope you’ll gain a biblical perspective and a deeper understanding of today’s events and life’s questions, big and small.
