Let god die began with the idea that people don't truly reject God, but they reject their perception of Him. Initially it was going to be strictly about addressing those false perceptions. 

Years later, I realized many of my beliefs about the character of God were not truly based on Biblical truths, but rather things I'd been told and simple palatable phrases printed on bumper stickers and t-shirts. I knew I'd experienced God in a real way, but my experiences of Him didn't seem to line up with the God of the Bible. 

Thus started a journey into reading the Bible with a clean slate (as much as that's possible), not intending to reinforce the box I'd previously placed God into, but allowing Him to rip open the box and speak the truth of who He is into my heart. It was a terrifying experience, to lay it all on the table and risk my unknowingly false beliefs to be challenged and deconstructed. But I truly saw that the God of the Bible lines up far more with my personal experiences of Him than I previously even recognized. 

Let god die was a concept I toyed with for many years. I felt at the time that my ideals and approach might come from a place of frustration with the Church and that I might be susceptible to merely composing ANOTHER box to place God in, instead of continually allowing my current understandings to be challenged. There are many things that are black and white and clear in Scripture, but still many others that are NOT that we tend to make declarations about. 

When the time came to move forward to pursue let god die, it was initially a short film ministry. We filmed several short films addressing subtle misunderstandings about the character of God, but they were filmed sporadically and when I had the time to do so. I wanted to pursue a means of producing something more regular, and turning let god die into a podcast was the way I chose to go. 

SHORT FILMS

I invited my good friend Calvin Holloway to partner with me as cohost of the weekly podcast. Calvin has been a truly solid friend and one of the few guys I've always seen as a partner in ministry in whatever we happened to be doing together. He encourages and challenges me and has a humble and compassionate heart towards others.

The podcast has been an incredible journey. I knew we'd be hearing peoples' stories of coming to Christ and having great conversations, but I never could have anticipated how challenging and encouraging it would be. Every conversation has caused me to take a look at myself and see ways I need to increase my dependency on God and become more surrendered to Him. These are conversations that wouldn't happen naturally if it weren't for the podcast, and I have a passion for causing such conversations to occur. 

We would love to continue to grow let god die. I believe there's great value in sharing stories of the living God changing peoples' lives and addressing misunderstandings about Him. This can happen in a variety of different mediums and we would love to do more outside of JUST the podcast.

Some of those ways are:
Podcast discussion resources - shortened audio clips, questions and Bible verses to provoke discussion
Short films - visuals to tell stories of God at work and addressing misunderstandings
Books - the story of how God has personally changed my understanding of Him and what it means to follow Him

In 2016 we have:
Released 52 podcast episodes
Created 10 podcast discussion resources

In 2017 we would LOVE to:
Release another 52 podcast episodes
Create as many as 52 podcast discussion resources
Create as many as 12 short films
Write 2 to 3 books
Make t-shirts and patches

There are other long term ideas in mind, but ideas I'm currently in prayer about. Be praying for continued direction in those things!
