After a long absence the LBM podcast plans, Deo Volente, to resume broadcasting on Jan 26th at 8:00 AM with Episode 81. The Lord saw fit to put my family (my wife has had some health challenges) through some trials in order to conform us into the image of Christ. Also, I must confess that while going through this time I lost the will and motivation to continue. The Lord has been gracious and my wife is doing much better. We have learned what it means that He works all things together for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose (Rom 8:28). I am also being joined by a new co-host (Jacob Young) who will add a new element to the show.
Jacob A. Young is 28 years old and recently married to Kaitlin. He and his wife attend the same church we do, Bethel Community Church (bethelcomchurch.org). He obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree in Biblical Exposition from Moody Bible Institute in Spokane, WA. After serving in the local church for four years, and working with small groups and discipleship ministries, he moved to Sandpoint, ID. While there, he served as an interim Youth Pastor and Pastoral Intern for about a year and a half. Following this ministry opportunity, he moved to Texas, to study at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, where he earned his Master of Arts in Christian Education with a focus on Biblical (nouthetic) counseling. He has enjoyed the privilege of being in Pastoral roles in Washington, Idaho, and Texas over the past 9 years. He now resides in Sarasota, FL with his wife, where he is planning to serve the Lord in a variety of capacities in and out of the local church.
I am excited about this reboot of the podcast and we will continue to provide apologetic, polemical and educational content that we hope and pray will be used to edify and encourage the body of Christ.
