What Does An Egg Hunt Have To Do With Easter?

April 1, 2021

On this podcast Jim Putman, Senior Pastor at Real Life Ministries and Lance Wigton, Communication Director at Real Life Ministries, answer an often asked question - "Why would a church do an egg hunt for Easter?"

They talk about the fact that even though we know Bunnies and eggs have nothing to do with celebrating the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we are always looking for ways to go outside of our walls and reach the world for Jesus one person at a time.

They explain the philosophy behind what we call a 'Bridge' event - and why it can cause people to take a step into a relational environment and bring them a step closer to a relationship with God and His Church.

Waking up from the American Dream: Podcast Ep 30 – Jim Putman

September 19, 2020

 

 

Jim Putman is back from his summer break, and he is talking today with Lance Wigton about some of the things he learned in his time away.
