Todd Seifert, conference communications director, hosts this podcast that features stories about discipleship in the Great Plains Conference, interviews with people from throughout Kansas and Nebraska, and reflections on scripture as a way of sharing thoughts on the Bible with people who either haven't read the Bible, are confused by the Bible or who just want a refresher.

"At the Threshold" is a podcast for ministry leaders during this new, unsettled season in the life of the Church. Join hosts the Revs. Ashlee Alley Crawford and Shelly Petz as they host a conversation with and for clergy in order to describe what’s happening, ask questions to help us get “unstuck," and encourage the heart of pastors and leaders in this liminal time in which we find ourselves. Liminal may be a new word. But a new season calls for a new word. Liminal means a threshold from what we’ve always know to … well, we don’t know just yet what life and ministry is becoming. The hosts' goal is to find a little light at the threshold. Click the logo above or here to listen.

Rachel Hagewood and Ben Howard get together for an in-depth look at a different concept from the Bible. They'll read Scripture, talk theology, bounce ideas off of each other, and do their best to make you think and make you laugh. In between these biblical deep-dives, Rachel and Ben will be joined by a different guest each month to explore these concepts from a different, and occasionally unusual, angle.
