Bryan Entzminger hosts the Engaging Missions Show and also edits and helps produce additional podcasts, focused on small business and non-profit organization leaders.
Brian Morykon rejoins the show in this two partner to help us understand the impact of Henri Nouwen on his leadership perspective, and with a little something from the Desert Fathers as it relates to "society". Much-needed ancient wisdom. For a deeper look at Nouwen and the Desert Fathers (and Mothers), check out Nouwen's book The Way of the Heart.

Wondering if you're really becoming all that God has created you to be? As Pastor Kevin reminds us, there is a key ingredient to growth that can only happen in community. Listen to discover what community is and what we're missing out on if we're not part of a real, healthy community.
When you're talking with prospective clients about your editing and production services, what do those conversations feel like? Do they feel natural? Do they feel forced or uncomfortable? Are you constantly "in your head" wondering if you're saying the right thing. If so, you're not alone, but it doesn't have to stay that way. While you might not normally think of improv as something valuable for "behind the scenes" people like podcast editors, (Chris Trew of Hell Yes Creative) has a different perspective based on his YEARS of practicing and teaching improv. As he shares, you'll discover that what improvisation teaches is incredibly valuable to us (maybe as important as knowing how to capture a great recording) especially when it comes to those critical client conversations. After all, owning a podcast editing or production business isn't ONLY about editing a podcast or knowing how to add music to a track or even knowing what microphone to recommend. It's also about relationships...because our clients are people. As you listen, you'll discover a few things: You'll hear how Chris handles unexpected events that interrupt his train of thought mid-conversation. You'll learn why "Yes, And" can still be a valuable approach, even when some conversations feel like they should be "No, But" dialogs. The reason a "Yes, And" approach can be valuable, even when you'd rather steer the conversation a different direction in order to save time. You'll discover why questions are sometimes lazy and how you can make them more valuable (an odd concept for hosts of interview shows). One exercise that can help kick off brainstorming and create an environment for lateral thinking. The key to comfortable, relaxed conversations. Oh, and you also get to hear (Daniel), (Bryan), and (Jennifer) try to keep up with the amazing pace and energy Chris brings as he takes us through a few exercises right on the show. Even (Michael Jerry) hopped into the comments to share a few things. Chris will also be hosting a two-week improv workshop starting February 23, 2021. Check it out at ( More About Chris TrewChris Trew is on a mission to bring improv to those who wouldn't ordinarily engage with it.
