After a brief hiatus, The Academy’s podcast, From the Well, is back with a new host, Kristen Vincent. Our original host, Rachel Kinney, is focusing on a new career in non-profit leadership. We are grateful to her for launching this podcast and wish her well. Thanks Rachel! With episode 9, we welcome our new host, Kristen Vincent. Kristen is a graduate of Two-Year Academy 34 and an award-winning Upper Room author.
