MindShift podcast (formerly "The Preacher's Forum podcast") is all about one aim: helping people from all walks of faith and life to think critically about God, the church, and spirituality. In this day and age of "supermarket religion," where people are free to pick and choose what they want to believe from a wide variety of competing faiths and belief systems, how should Christians, and churches alike, respond?

It seems clear from existing polling data, that the church--at least in the West--is in serious decline. People are leaving the church, but not necessarily giving up their faith in God. One major problem is that the church is seemingly incapable of having any sort of nuanced discussion about theology, beliefs, doctrines, or the Bible. We need to be able to think critically and potentially shift our points of view!

MindShift will help you to do just that--have a mindshift. Listening to the podcast, and interacting with other supporters, will enable you to begin to think through issues critically, and to reflect theologically on a wide variety of topics. By engaging in the content, you'll learn how to move forward in pro-active ways, rather than simply in reactionary ways--as unfortunately has been the case so often in the past--especially in the case of both churches, and church leadership.

As a teacher and former pastor of a church for nearly 12 years, I combine both my passion for teaching and critical thinking together with my years of experience in full-time ministry.

And, as a transplanted American living in the United Kingdom for the last 12 years, I am able to bring a unique perspective on life, culture and religion from outside of the mainstream, North American point of view that so often dominates the media, the church, and theology.

By supporting MindShift, you'll be helping me continue to do just that: to cover such expenses as travel costs for more podcast interviews, monthly podcast hosting, offsetting the cost of equipment upgrades, and so on.

Thank you for supporting the ongoing work of MindShift!

Goals
$13 of $500 per month
I want to build my audience of listeners so that ultimately this can support me monthly, as well as cover the expense of running MindShift podcast and Preacher's Forum blog.
