This week our friend Steve Long joins us all the way from Toronto, Canada to share on the Holy Spirit and healing. Steve is one of the best ministers we've ever heard teach on healing and has a way of simplifying complex truths into practical steps. All of this plus some follow up from last week's episode on the election.
Brett & Shailey have an incredible story of the faithfulness of God. From a marriage ruined by alcohol addiction and hidden sin, to the pressures of being a pro athlete in the NFL we talk to these guys about the journey of discovering the Lord, why they chose the presence of God over everything else and what it means to live life contentedly.
This week is vacation week. We're enjoying the sun while on vacation. But we haven't left you all alone. Before we went, Alyn interviewed Kory Westerhold & Aaron Martin the creators of NeuBible, the world's most beautiful Bible app. Alyn asks about the behind the scenes of making the app, how one procures the actual texts for the Bible and life as a Christian in California. Listen to the interview and then download the app.
And we're back with tales from abroad. Last week we were in Iceland catching up with old friends and making some new ones. While there, we interviewed our friend Baldur a former pimp and drug dealer who met Jesus and had his life transformed. We also answer a listener's question about sexual sin, which is why this episode is marked explicit (it's not really explicit, but we want to warn you lest you listen to these at work or in the car with kids around!)
This week we're joined by our friend David Campbell. David is one of the national leaders of the Elim Pentecostal church in the UK and oversees 200 pastors. As a pastor of pastors we asked him all sorts of questions about what he's learned in leading people for over 30 years.
Henry & Alex lead The Belonging, a church in Nashville that started with 7 people meeting in the basement of their house. Two years later, they are fast approaching a congregation of 2,000 people. We sat down with them and asked about their journey which looked more like despondency and desert than dreams or destiny. Be encouraged as they share their story about what it's like to sell everything you have, move across the world following God while everyone else thinks you've taken a misstep.
In preparation for this week's episode we suggest you watch this youtube clip first. Gary & Sarah have been friends of ours for 10 years. They are wonderful parents, incredible leaders and tremendous fun. We designed our podcast with the goal of getting to interview them and now, some ninety episode later, we've done it. If you want to hear straight from a prophet about how he hears from God, this is the episode for you.
This is more than an hour of solid gold Holy Spirit goodness. On this episode we ask David to share the story of how God transformed him from a suicidal alcoholic schizophrenic into the cuddly loving mercy prophet we have today. If you're not encouraged after listening to this episode, have a bag of skittles and try listening again.
If we told you that this episode featured someone who speaks 17 languages (15 of which were given to him supernaturally by God) and is familiar with a life of miracles would you believe us? What about someone who has seen eight people raised from the dead? What about - and stay with us here - someone who was murdered and then came back to life by the power of Jesus? For our 75th episode, we've gone all out and got some of the most crazy miraculous stories you're likely to hear today. Featuring Pastor Surprise Sithole and Pastor Franci Shongwe. Amazing.
A special episode with our friends Sam & Tink McLeod continuing our recent chats about favor and destiny. We invited these guys to share their story that started with a fleeting thought and has now transitioned into moving countries. Plus, how to make poached eggs for 10 people at a time and great ideas for children's books.
I mean seriously, who doesn't love Josh & Sarah Parsons? Following on from last week's episode on destiny, this episode we ask Josh & Sarah to tell their story of moving to Nashville, finding favor, watch their dreams die, working hard and stepping into their destiny. This is a great episode that will be an encouragement to any of you who feel "stuck".
Leaders of revival for over 20 years. World travelers. Lovers of Jesus. Spiritual parents to many. This week it's our tremendous joy to ask John & Carol to retell the story of when the Holy Spirit invaded their church and what they've learnt in the years since. Also: how not to screw up an international revival.
Did you know that God speaks today through dreams? On this week's episode, our friend Sarah Jackson from Catch The Fire shares about her journey into understanding dreams and the dream interpretation process. Alyn makes a sports analogy, we talk pizza and cronuts and Sarah interprets some of our listeners' dreams.
Our good friends, Ben & Sarah Jackson are in town, so we sat them down and asked them questions about living in Toronto and how the revival there has changed their lives. We even got them to pray for a revelation of the Father's love. This is a good one.
We've known Marc for years. If you've ever heard AJ's testimony you'll have heard of a time when a prophet called her out, told her the secrets of her heart, walked through her past and told her her future. Well, yeah, that's Marc. On this week we pick his brain on how he got called into ministry, what it's like to play poker with other prophets and what he does for fun.
This wasn't the easiest episode to record (technically and emotionally). Alyn's mom is dying of cancer and as her doctors had given her a few weeks to live, we flew over to Scotland to be with her and say our goodbyes. While we were eating lunch one day we plonked down a microphone and asked her for some wisdom on things like raising children, family days, salvation, death and avoiding dysfunction. The episode is worth listening to just for her accent. Enjoy.
We rushed off to Scotland this past weekend and because we spent most of the weekend traveling and restraining small children we couldn't record a podcast. Fear not however; the ever awesome Lyle Phillips who was with us last week gave us so much brilliant stuff that we couldn't fit it all in. This week, we've collected the stuff we cut out due to time so you could laugh along with us.
We hope your commute is long this week, or you at least have a lot of housework to do because this is the longest podcast we've made yet. It's totally not our fault. There's just too many good stories from Lyle that it was difficult to cut. Here's what you'll hear however; Lyle's transformation from drug dealer to a rescuer of children caught in sex trafficking, his first encounter with missions, what Heidi Baker taught him about the Kingdom and lots, lots more. This is a great episode.
It's almost impossible to describe just how amazing Chris McClarney is. He's a world renowned worship leader, a gifted song writer, incredible dad and just all round great guy. On this episode we pick Chris's brain on the anointing, leading worship, his one word descriptions of the greatest worship leaders around and his fascination with Lego. Bonus: Alyn finds a spontaneous prophetic song from years ago that many years later ended up as one of Chris's most awesome songs.
A special (and longer) show this week with our first special guest ever: none other than our dear friend and senior pastor, Jeff Dollar. Topics we cover include Whole 30 feedback, the personification of joy found in Becky Dollar, salvation, the baptism of the Holy Spirit and deliverance from chain smoking.
