StartUp Church Planting (Introduction)

Since its first season, I've been a listener of the StartUp podcast. As an entrepreneurial-type, I'm always fascinated with the why and how of starting new projects. What began as an insider view of Cincinnati native Alex Blumberg's quest to start his own podcast company has expanded to a non-traditional media empire. ABC even tried to make a sitcom out of the story.

So when they announced that this season's edition of StartUp would focus on church planting, I was pleasantly surprised—especially since they were covering an urban church plant by one of our Movement's organizations. Since I helped start an urban church thirteen years ago and since I think the content of this series has broader interest, I decided to post some reflections from each episode.

If you're determining if this podcast series might interest you, maybe listen to the This American Life synopsis first.
