Founders Podcast

Announcing the Founders Podcasts

Listen each week to the Founders Ministries Podcast as we explore issues related to the recovery and advancement of the gospel and the work of reformation in the church. The Podcasts will feature interviews, lectures, sermons and discussions with pastors and church leaders who are praying and working toward this end to God’s glory.

In the first podcast Tim Brister interviews Tom Ascol on topics that include the 2008 National Founders Conference (held June 24 - 27 in Owasso, OK), church planting and church renewal, and Resolution #6 on Recovering Regenerate Church Membership and Church Discipline, that was passed this past June at the Southern Baptist Convention in Indianapolis.

You can find the podcast at www.recoveringthegospel.net (click on "Go to Podcasts" on the Welcome page)

The Founders Ministries Podcast is also available on iTunes.
