S2 E14: Evangelizing in 2022 (with Taylor Schroll of Forte Catholic)
We zoomed (no pun intended) all the way down to Texas to bring on a special guest, Taylor Schroll of Forte Catholic.  Taylor's podcast is super catholic, consistent, and popular.  In fact, he was recently featured in an article on The Wall Street Journal!  Listen in as Taylor offers advice on how to evangelize in a culture that is becoming increasingly secular, as well as some talk on our all time favorite athletes.   Taylor's Podcast can be found here.   Taylor's YouTube can be found here.

S2 E13: From Satan to...Saint?
Most conversion stories you hear usually involve typical party lifestyle sins...maybe too much alcohol, promiscuity, or idol worship.  Blessed Bartolo Longo was a full blown satanist.  This dude was ORDAINED in satanist ministry and was drawn back to the Lord with immense force.  He renounced his evil ways, and worked to evangelize countless souls afterwards.  Listen in to hear the full story!  Our YouTube:  JMJ Missions Instagram: @jmjmissions Website: Pray for us, we are praying for you!

S2 E12: Step Out of Your Comfort Zone
Our good friend Denielle ventured outside of her comfort zone to join us on this podcast! Denielle is normally behind the scenes, directing the show, but today she stepped in front of the camera (or microphone) to offer her thoughts about the necessity for Christians to stand up for their faith and preach the Gospel.  Listen in as we argue about whether or not Central New Jersey actually exists, what virtues we need to conquer pride,  and why Padre Pio is the perfect saint to invoke when dealing with comfort zone issues!  Our YouTube:  JMJ Missions Instagram: @jmjmissions Website: Pray for us, we are praying for you!

S1 E16: Bible Roulette Game
Anybody can just flip open to a random page in the Bible and start reading...but there's no theater in that.  Tonight we played a round of our famous "Bible Roulette" game.  Along with a special guest, (Dan's sister, Nicole), we randomly took turns choosing a testament, book, chapter, and verse to see where we would land!  Much to our surprise, the three readings ended up having almost EXACTLY the same theme.  You'll have to listen to find out what it was!

S1 E15: Crucifixion Confusion
If you don't understand it, looking at a crucifix can be scary. Some think it's depressing, some a sign of weakness, and even some Christians don't understand how Christ's death actually saves us.

S1 E14: Difficult Questions Require Difficult Answers
Most Q and A's are pretty gentle....ya know, easy questions, fluffy answers, you get it.  This one is different.  Rocco comes out SWINGING for the fences trying to stump Dan with some intense, sometimes dark (but authentic) spiritual questions.  This podcast was actually a video that we uploaded to our YouTube channel about a year ago titled "Rapid Fire Q and A."  Be sure to stick around until the end of the podcast to hear our analysis and how to connect with the Holy Spirit when faced with a difficult question.
