My absence from blogging has a good reason (at least as far as I'm concerned). This blog post is to give you a big reason why. Time is hard to come by in my life these days and blogging gets lowered on the priority list. Hopefully as everything kicks into gear I'll be able to spend some of my morning meditation time to blog about what I'm thinking on that day. We shall see :). Until then here is a brief explanation of my latest adventure.
Things have been a bit crazy around so I have not really been able to tell you much about an exciting project with which I have been involved. The project is a quality Christian podcast network called The Equip Network. Let me tell you a little bit about how it all came to be.
On December 11th of last year I was invited to be on a podcast called iPreach and talk about using Facebook to advertise to your community. Shortly after that I was invited to be a co-host on iPreach for one episode. All of this got me thinking about starting my own podcast so I contacted Joe Wells and Wesley Walker and around March of this year we launched a podcast called Engage! – Where Christ & Culture Meet. Our listenership quickly shot up. It wasn’t long and I got together with Dale Jenkins of iPreach to talk to Michael Hite about starting a podcast about using technology better in ministry. That was the birth of MinistryGeek This Week which has been a huge success. Our minds kept moving and we said, “Wouldn’t it be great to have a whole network of podcasts to help Christians in every aspect of their Christian walk.” That idea gave birth to The Equip Network which we launched on August 30th at Polishing the Pulpit.
The Equip Network is a family podcasts that is rapidly expanding. We launched with six active podcasts: iPreach, Engage, MinistryGeek This Week, Equipped Today, LiveNOW.teen, and The Hey Joe Show. On October 1st our newest podcast, Behind the Pulpit, will launch with Wayne Roberts and Bob Turner hosting. And that is just the beginning. We have about five more shows starting production in the near future. It’s an exciting adventure because instead of being on the backside of the wave we are getting in on the front. We are able to use technology to get the ancient gospel into the hands of the multitudes.
So make your way over to TheEquipNetwork.com and take a listen to all our podcasts. You can even subscribe to Equipped Today which is a daily 2-5 minute spiritual thought podcast that will help you get your day started out in the right direction! Next week Glenn Colley is going to be hosting Equipped Today. You won’t want to miss it!
