A New Thing

A New Thing

By Jason Evans
A podcast about new faith communities. It's about those that have the courage to start new communities. It's about the how and why and for whom in regards to new expressions of the Church. I talk with these leaders, and those who inspire and inform what they do.
Ep. 31 Liberating Church (pt. 1)
This week is the first of a two-part series in which I talk with Brandon Wrencher, Venneikia Williams and Anthony Smith of the Liberating Church project. Brandon is the founding minister of The Good Neighbor Movement. Anthony is a co-founding pastor of Mission House. He was also a guest on A New Thing episode 1. The Liberating Church Conference is coming up on September 11 & 12. Watch their Facebook page for details. A list of books mentioned in this episode, and other episodes, is available at Amazon.com.
