The title of this podcast God in Company is inspired from the scripture reading Matthew 18:20 "Where two or more are gathered in My name, I am there in the midst of them." We believe God is in our company with our audience and in our episodes. This podcast is by the Saint Anne Youth Ministry Program of Saint Anne Church in Union City, CA where we'll share faith, ministry, and many more with each other and our audience.
