On the first episode of a two part series, Brian was raised a rule following catholic. Introverted, but faithful he began questioning his existing beliefs and seeking answers. In college, he met Nick and the two friends eventually found Jesus through a carpool. We talk about Brian’s upbringing, what that time in college was like for both Brian and Nick, and Brian’s pursuit of Mandy. We’re also joined by Kevin Baker.
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.

After years of seeking fulfillment on his own terms through drinking, wrestling, and candy, God broke through to Nick. Now, he is learning a new language of dependence on Jesus filled with purpose and adventure.

On the first ever episode of This Joe Show Podcast, I’m joined by Kevin Baker and my Co-host Chris Baker. We talk about Kevin’s upbringing, how he came to Christ, and how he’s learning to follow him.
