    Upper New York New Faith Communities to be featured on podcast

    July 17, 2018 / By UNY Communications

    Reports from the Spiritual Frontier is a Path1-sponsored podcast that tells the stories of the day-to-day lives of the pioneers who are innovating radically New Faith Communities on the spiritual margins of our country. You will encounter the stories of the new church God is planting in the midst of our country’s changing religious landscape, told in the voices of the people who are actually doing the work. Hear about their glorious successes and equally glorious failures, their most beautiful stories and most pressing questions, and what God is teaching them about what it means to follow Jesus in a rapidly changing culture.

    You can listen to episodes by visiting or, or simply by searching for “Reports from the Spiritual Frontier” on Apple Podcasts, or Google Play, or wherever you get your podcasts.

    Some New Faith Communities right here in the Upper New York Conference will be featured on this podcast this summer so be sure to check it out! For example, there will be an interview with Erin Patrick at the ROAD and an interview with Chris Jewell Rebecca Priest, lead planter of our newest NFC called, “Into Silence.”  There will also be an interview the Rev. Carlos Rosa-Laguer, who will describe his vision and strategy for planting many new Hispanic house churches in Rochester. The podcast will also feature an interview with the Rev. Dave Masland, Director of New Faith Communities in UNY, where he will give everyone the broader view of what we are trying to do in UNY in the area of planting.
