Recently, Ryan Bell, Lisa Diller, Kumar Dixit and Julius Nam started doing some experimental podcasts surrounding contemporary issues and Adventism. In this 18 min. conversation, hosted by Lisa they focus on the question:
"What are the challenges faced by local Adventist churches when it comes to retaining and attracting young people?"
Along the way, they talked about:
- "What does it mean for a church to be healthy?"
- "What role does a pastor have in
- "Can one have a vibrant religious life apart from commitment to a local congregation?"
