Welcome to Season 3

The Distillery Season 3

We invite you back to The Distillery for Season 3, which launches July 19, 2019. Hear about confirmation, apocalyptic literature, and the life and legacy of the great American preacher, Gardner C. Taylor. Explore the complexities faced when making decisions about the end of life and when walking with someone struggling with addiction. We’ll address spiritual warfare in 2 Corinthians 12 and the challenges of ministering to people who no longer need God.

The Distillery is a podcast that explores the essential ingredients of book and research projects with experts in their field of study. Learn what motivates their work and why it matters for theology and ministry.

“What I like about working in an international church is that I’m always reminded that I’m a foreigner, that the land is not mine and I’m just a passenger on this journey.”
