Ep 45: Spirit-Empowered Mission - The Fallacy We've All Believed

July 6, 2022 • Nick Kadun, Kyle Harnett

Why is it that while thousands across Canada have participated in renewal events (Soul Care, Holy Spirit Encounter, etc.), current statistical data shows that missional behaviour, as measured by missional prayer, social concern, and direct or verbal witness, has not increased? If the belief that spiritual renewal automatically translates to increased missional behaviour is true, then why aren't we seeing more of this? Has the church in the West missed an essential element in their pneumatology and missiology?

In this episode, Nick Kadun and returning guest Dr. Kyle Harnett talk about why training for mission and evangelism is crucial to seeing everyday Christians effectively engage in Spirit-filled mission, and why this matters for Canada.

Ep. 58: Possibilities and Potential Perils of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR)

May 23, 2023

We are on the verge of a fourth industrial revolution that will profoundly alter how we live, work, relate to one another and engage in God’s mission. As with all technological advances, the possibilities and potential perils are endless. On one side, the missional opportunities are expanding with better real-time translation services, AI discipleship partners and chatbots for social media engagements and so forth. On the other side, there are many ethical challenges and unknowns. Join Jerin Thomas, Nick Kadun and their guests Rev. Dr. Bryce Ashlin-Mayo (Dean of Theology, Ambrose University) and Jeremie Boulianne (Electronics & Robotics Hardware Designer, EZ-Robot, Inc.), for a discussion around possibilities and potential perils of the fourth industrial revolution (4IR). 

Ep. 57: Building Disciple Making Capacity

April 28, 2023

For decades, the church has focused on increasing "ministry capacity" - where we invite people to events and programs, hoping to make disciples. What could happen if we shifted our focus from "ministry capacity" to Disciple Making Capacity? Join Sarah Hunter and her guests Brian Johnson and Rob Wegner of the KC Underground for a discussion around what it looks like to build the capacity to make disciples within every believer.
