Joel grew up in a Christian home where truth was paramount. God worked to use his discontent for the institutional church and his pursuit of a PhD to bring him to Northeast Ohio and give him a vibrant campus ministry. We also talk about “project bankruptcy”, a vision for our church’s future, and reflections on his father’s life. We are joined by Chris and Kevin Baker.
Elli grew up a princess but she couldn’t make relationships work. Then God worked through others to show her true purpose comes from knowing Jesus and putting his priorities first even in difficult times.
