    Podcasts

    Reports from the Spiritual Frontier is a Path1-sponsored podcast that tells the stories of the pioneers who are innovating radically New Faith Communities. Here, you will encounter the stories of the new church God is planting, told in the voices of the people who are actually doing the work. Hear about their glorious successes and equally glorious failures, and what God is teaching them about what it means to follow Jesus in a rapidly changing culture. Below are links to podcasts featuring members from the Upper New York Conference.
