Church in Action Podcast: Disciple-Making Episodes

Gina Mueller of 3DMovements

"The way we do church, we always put an expert at the center. This reinforces the idea that everyday people can't do ministry."
Hosted by Vision New England President Charles Galda, Church in Action episodes are conversations with New England leaders about critical issues that impact how Christians engage in our culture
to accelerate evangelism.

Join us as we focus on making disciples, doing justice, and sharing Jesus to accelerate evangelism in New England!
