1. Katie Koplin is busy with a big family move and finishing up this year of grad school, so Gretchen Ronnevik invited on one of the young women she mentors, Gretchen Larson, to talk about what it's like to be a young, single adult in the church, what they need from the church, and how to foster intergenerational relationships.
  2. Gretchen and Katie have a conversation with Rev. Bob Hiller about prosperity gospel, and how it sneaks into churches in a way that we start targeting the healthy people, the young families, and those who have something to offer the church.
  3. This episode Gretchen Ronnevik and Katie Koplin discuss Acts 2, where we read about the early church, and how it grew.
  4. For our 101st episode, we are answering more listener questions, since we received so many.
  5. We have special guest Sarah Crowder to talk with us about interacting with the teens in our lives--whether our own, in our churches, or neighborhoods--in a way that helps them understand the gospel.
  6. In this episode, Gretchen and Katie discuss their recent interview with Aimee Byrd, and talk about how some of the issue is the "growth mindset" that can sometimes get us targeting certain demographics in order to get your church to grow.
  7. We are excited to have one of Gretchen's pastors, Rev. Dale Hexum, on this episode to talk more about sermons. We ask him about the preaching philosophy he works within, and what to look for in a sermon.
  8. We kept Rev. Tim Koch on for one more episode, as we expand the conversation from "what makes a sermon" from last week, to some of the struggles with both pastors and parishioners.
  9. In a world where sermons can be downloaded from any church at the touch of a button, it's easy to follow "celebrity pastors" pastors who are outside your denomination, pastors who don't even know you.
  10. In a culture that talks about making everything bigger, better, stronger, and more streamlined, it's easy for the church to get sucked into that discussion. As we think about that discussion, we wanted to give a down home look at what is the purpose or function of the church?
  11. This is the second installment in our series profiling women in the Bible (Who are not named Ruth or Esther). Both the stories of Ruth and Esther are beautiful, gracious, and profound. We love reading and rereading them. However, in an attempt to bring attention to more stories of more women throughout the Scriptures, we choose now to shift our focus.
  12. Questions of our purpose and significance as a church abound with fewer and fewer people in the pews.
