• 2 lenses to view your sermons and church content through

Well, I hope you brought your scuba gear because today we’re going DEEP. Our topics range from storytelling in the church context to effective, “Christ-centered” responses to social justice.


Today’s guest is Gospel Lee, Creative Storyteller at Battlecreek Church in Tulsa and creator of “quality hip-hop your mom would be proud of.” His ability to bring cultural relevance to communications while creating “re-engagement points” for people provides incredible insight that can help your church connect with people better. Whether you are looking for insights on storytelling in the church world, handling social justice conversations as Christ would, or how to ensure that your church communications are on point, this is the episode for you!
