Fuel: A Friends Southwest Podcast
05: Gospel Conversations

05: Gospel Conversations

January 30, 2019

On this month’s edition of FUEL, our official FSW podcast, our guest is Alan Amavisca.

We asked Alan to come and share with us what Gospel Conversations ( i.e. Evangelism) look like in the sociological context in which we live. Alan is effectively engaging the culture and has many stories of incredible encounters with non- church and de-churched people. In the podcast, he gives us simple but profound thoughts on how to connect with those around us who do not know Jesus or have left the church wounded and disillusioned.

04: Christmas Peace

04: Christmas Peace

December 18, 2018

This podcast is filled with moments of reflection, meditation on God’s word, and directed prayer. It’s not long and is meant to give you a few moments of respite out of what we imagine is a very full schedule. It is our offering to you as we pray for your peace and joy as you prepare to celebrate Jesus’ birth and lead others to the mystery and beauty of the manger.

In this month’s edition of FUEL, our FSW Podcast, we address the topic of depression in Pastor’s with Dr. Chris Adams of the Vocational Center for Ministry at Azusa Pacific University.  A former pastor himself, Dr. Adams brings research-based insights on the unique challenges pastor’s face regarding depression as well as practical ways to recognize and deal with its impact on our lives.

While not everyone’s favorite topic, nor everyone’s struggle, I hope you will take time to listen to Dr. Adams insights as there are many within ministry and in our churches, who are struggling.
