Epsiode #10: Covid-19 and 9/11, An Interview with Pastor Bobby Oh
We live in an unprecedented time as we deal with Covid-19 and the hysteria and fear that it has caused many. But as believers, what if God has called us for such a time as this? To use our resources, gifts, talents and time to be a beacon of hope and peace by pointing to our hope and peace giver Jesus Christ? In this episode, we talk with our Brea Worship Director, Pastor Bobby Oh as he recounts his time in New York when he was at the epicenter of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. What was it like? And how does it relate to our panic today? And ultimately, what are some lessons God has taught Bobby during that time?

Episode #9 The Immutability of God and the Gospel, an Interview with Pastor John Shick Lee
Does God change in His being or thoughts? Is He constantly growing and maturing like us? Does God ever make mistakes? What about passages in Scripture that seem to show that He is sorry for His decisions? And how does the doctrine of God's unchanging nature affect us to think, speak and live a gospel centered life? In this episode, we invite Pastor John Shick Lee to talk us through the the EQUIP Bible Study he taught on the doctrine of God's immutability.  FOR MORE INFO ABOUT OUR CHURCH   WEBSITE: www.crossway-church.com   FACEBOOK: www.facebook.com/crosswayoc   INSTAGRAM: crossway_oc   Intro and Outro Music: Neo Soul and Funk Guitars by Cloud Chord

Episode #7 Interview with Pastor Sam on the Hope Quotient
It's inevitable that all of us will face times of disappointment, discouragement or burnout. During those times, the answer isn't necessarily a vacation, or some alone time, or to buy yourself something nice. In our interview, Pastor Sam shares how having hope is one of the keys to thriving for the long haul. And not only is hope important, it's something that you can actively increase. It's not just an emotion that you feel when things are great. What are some ways that we can actively increase our hope despite difficult circumstances? Today, we talk to Pastor Sam about a seminar he gave during our Volunteer's Conference in January to help equip and motivate our church servants. In this interview, we talk through the "Hope Quotient" by Ray Johnston.

Episode #6 Interview with Pastor Jun Park on Self Care Leadership and the Gospel
Often times, because of life's demanding schedule with work, family and a host of various events and unexpected occurrences, we tend to neglect ourselves. And typically this can lead to devastating consequences of apathy, bitterness, depression and much more. So in this episode, we talk through the importance of recognizing and carefully managing the four areas of self care including the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. We hope that you will be blessed and will be stirred to be a healthier follower of Jesus so that you can be a leader who not just survives but thrive. In this episode we sit down with Pastor Jun Park, who is the Crossway campus pastor at Irvine and we talk through his seminar on self care leadership that was presented during our recent volunteer's conference.
