Welcome to podcast #18! The Players * R.C. * Andrew * Tyrone * Alison * Carrie * Bridget The Conversation What do you expect from a conference? Information? A mountaintop Experience? Special "untouchable" speakers? This semi-special edition podcast is an excerpt from a 2-hour radio program that these six saints host together on Sunday afternoons in Austin, TX. In this segment, they debunk common mindsets and expectations for religious conferences and offer a renewed outlook for the To the Saints Conference coming in July 2017. If you'd like to hear the whole program, in which they also discuss what it means to be a priesthood and see (or hear) Christ in a song, check out the website at tothesaintsradio.com.
