Frank and Sherri Pomeroy

In this episode, we’re talking with Frank and Sherri Pomeroy of First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. You will recall that’s where, on Nov. 5, 2017, an armed man opened fire during Sunday morning worship services, killing 26 people, including nine members of one family.

In the two-year aftermath of that horrific day, God has worked in wonderful ways to heal and redeem lives. The Pomeroys, who themselves lost a 14-year-old daughter in the tragedy, spoke with us in a profoundly transparent way about the struggles the church has experienced and how a wide range of redemptive relationships has helped traumatized families move toward healing.

In this episode, we’re talking with Glenn Barth, president and CEO of Good Cities, a community development initiative that advances the gospel of the Kingdom by working with local leaders toward the common good of the city. The mission of Good Cities is to discover, support, and serve vibrant city movements by building processes that create good cities.

Our good friend Reggie McNeal works alongside Glenn in helping community leaders discover the power and collective impact of collaboration. Using the Good City tools, church leaders can help their communities experience God’s common grace in the redemptive features a city has to offer, which in turn leads to the opportunity for people to experience God’s salvation and a future filled with hope.

Jeremiah Carlson: Redeeming brokenness


20121201_acr_15965In this episode, we talk with Jeremiah Carlson of The Neverclaim worship band. Jeremiah has a marvelous story of God’s breaking chains and turning brokenness into beauty — and it finds powerful expression in the band’s music.

Jeremiah’s story makes it very clear that, while we all struggle with brokenness, none of us are defined by the past. As followers of Jesus, our mission is to walk with others as they learn who they are in Christ and learn how God can use them to bring redemption and healing into other lives too.
