Well, we’ve made it to the end of another series! This episode marks the end of the SFC: Ask Me Anything series. We really enjoyed reading and fielding your questions…even the challenging ones. Since we’ve started the podcast, our mission has been to help us all SHINE BRIGHTER and BRIDGE BETTER. That’s the goal. Encouraging one another to live into our God-given calling to the shred culture. And so capping off our season with this series felt fitting. It felt fitting because talking through some of the difficult questions/topics that you all are wrestling can help us to think about/approach ministry differently (with confidence). So thank you for submitting your questions. Hopefully…these conversations were helpful!
In this episode, Josh Stock and Alie Heenan tackle the question: “Why should we be a part of an organized, in-person, local church when online options are available? It’s an extremely relevant question for us today, because many of us had to get used to attending church online during the COVID pandemic. And some of us just got used to it. We liked the convenience of attending any church we wanted to attend from the comfort of our own home. But is this the healthiest and most fruitful option? While online Church communities meet a need, and while they can be helpful…should this be our default? That’s the question that Josh and Alie seek to answer. And in our opinion, they do a great job navigating this important topic. So give it a listen! We think you’ll be blessed by their conversation.
One final note: We will be taking a little break from the podcast in order to gather/create more content over the summer…so don’t go unsubscribe! We will be launching our next series this Fall, and our plan is to continue the podcast through the next winter season. Thanks again for tuning in! We’ve really enjoyed trying our hand at something new, and we hope that is has been a blessing to you!
Why Start A Podcast?
Podcasts are a great platform to capture stories. We want to capture stories from people all over the world who are on the hill day after day engaging with people. We want to hear how Jesus has both transformed and informed their lives. And we want to hear how Jesus is impacting and changing their communities.
When stories are told well, they can help create direct experiences that inspire us to go out and generate incredible change.
While there are a ton of great resources out there already there are not many podcasts that directly relate to the unique (and niche) calling of ski/snowboard ministry – meeting and ministering to people on the mountain. Our hope is that this podcast will meet that need. We hope that this podcast is a resource for people who see how dark the shred industry can be and pray that it gives them a little bit of hope.
