Episode 020 – Meet My Favorite Intern

Geoff Cocanower joins me for a conversation on internships. Geoff took part in all three types of internships we do at our church, and he was my first-ever resident intern, joining us for three years post-college to be trained up and take ministry responsibility before being launched out.

Episode 018 – Meet a Former Student and Intern Who Got Married

Episode 018 – Meet a Former Student and Intern Who Got Married

Definitely my most controversial episode title to date, but it’s not as scandalous as it seems. Kory and Alison Lantz are a former student and intern who did get married. Kory was a part of the youth group and graduated in 2005. Ali came on as an intern in 2007. The two of them met in their college years. Today they lead an amazing youth ministry in South Bend, Indiana called Transformation Ministries.

In this episode we talk about the impact of being involved in a ministry marked by longevity, the challenges of sticking it out in urban ministry, the beauty and brokenness in the communities we serve, and about 20 other incredibly valuable insights for you.

Episode 08 – Meet My Mentor

Episode 08 – Meet My Mentor

When it came to introducing you to my friends, it only made sense to start with my wife Janelle Prenkert. It also only made sense to have the second guest by my mentor Terry Bley. Terry is the one who brought me on staff at my church and willingly moved to the side to allow me to grow in leadership.
