Forming Church is all about exploring what church planting, mission and evangelism could look like in our rapidly changing world. We want to create content that generates learning and conversation around these areas, while resourcing the next generation of planters, urban missionaries and followers of Jesus in contemporary Australian contexts.
The podcast is being produced by the Baptist Association of NSW & ACT in collaboration with Lead by Story, and will be hosted by Will Small and Benj Gould, who currently host Inhabit podcast — a conversation about forming habits to help us follow Jesus. After each episode Jamie Freeman will sit down with a few friends and unpack what we’ve just heard, sharing insights and dreaming about what Forming Church could look like across Australia.
