The Engage & Equip podcast is a resource designed to help form substantive disciples for the local church. You'll find a wide variety of topics to take your growth beyond Sunday sermons and into your daily life.


Escaping Babel is a series about escaping cultural captivity with gospel truth.

Episodes #73, 76, 78, 80, and 81 talk about dating and relationships.

Episodes #134 – 136 provide a foundation on spiritual friendships, while episodes #138, 139, and 141 give insight into real friendships that model spiritual friendships in different ways.

You can find the handout on advice for young women and men here.

Sometimes our pastors don't get to all the content they want to in a 50-minute sermon. In the Cutting Room Floor, you'll hear a discussion on the stuff they missed.

Latest Cutting Room Floor episode: #154

We've been going through the book of Ephesians this year, and every month you'll hear a discussion on the last month of sermons to help you digest the content you've been listening to on Sunday mornings.
