EMDC Podcast Launch

In the gospels, Jesus is recorded thirteen times telling his would-be disciples to follow him. In our present social media age, follow is usually combined with like. Yeah, it can be cringeworthy but building a community means keeping in touch with one another and having effective ways to get messages and stories out to those who opt in to being a part of the community like we have here through EMDC.

In November of 2020, EMDC Founder Steve Baughman and I began hosting a podcast designed to introduce our growing number of community members to the “people, places and possibilities” behind the global EMDC network. Season 1, launching on Wed Jan 13 2021, is designed to cover some past history of our conference (for newcomers) bringing our community up to date on our current online offerings as well as include interviews with specialists in app development, websites, ethnoarts, filmmaking, audio/radio, scripture gadgets, orality & storytelling, scripture engagement and culturally intelligent media.
