That Sounds Fun Podcast Episode 86: Tom (and Melissa!) Tanner

on July 3, 2018 in That Sounds Fun Podcast, Uncategorized with 5 comments by

As my college pastor at UGA’s Wesley Foundation and my pastor for a season at RiverStone Church, Tom Tanner is one of the most influential voices in my life. Tom and Melissa are on a short list, after my own parents, of people who have had the most impact in my life and growth. And I think that is true for hundreds of my friends, including some that you know- like Tyler Reagin from Catalyst and my pastor Kevin Queen.

We are living in a world where people walk away from their faith and the church fairly often, and sometimes people fall so deep into their own sin it costs them their ministry all together. I wanted to know how to do this faith life for the long haul and TOM AND MELISSA DID NOT DISAPPOINT.

Settle in for a conversation that just may change some things for you… and give you a reason to make a phone call to someone who has influenced your life, too.

    I just love listening to you and listening to your friends sharing their life with us in such a heartfelt way. This one encouraged me as he said to just keep praying! Don’t give up, just keep praying. I needed that today. Thank you for shining Jesus! I always love listening to you here and on Relevant! May God continue to work through you and bless you!

    WOW! What a testimony between the two of them. I needed to hear these stories so much today. I wept! And I say, “Do it again, Lord… it again….”
