7: What's The Point Of Gender Roles In The Church? With Kate Terry

In today's episode, MJ and Tyler sat down with our amazing friend and Downtown Director of Equipping & Women's Ministry, Kate Terry. We talk about our own stories surrounding gender roles in the church, our experiences wrestling with those topics, and much more. We hope that this episode leads to conversations of your own and even healing from ways you’ve experienced gender roles in the past. If you share on Instagram, make sure to tag us at @college_austinstone! "Again, it's not what the Scripture is saying. For me, the messiness of it and something I've had to wrestle through when I had those questions of, "Is this really good, God? Do you really love me? Do you really value me?" I had to ask that question of, "Okay, what is God's Word saying?" –Kate Terry

6: Can Doubt & Faith Practically Coexist? With Aaron Ivey

Let's talk about doubt. In this episode MJ & Tyler sit down with our good friend and Worship Pastor of The Austin Stone, Aaron Ivey. We share plenty of stories about our own doubts that we’ve experienced as church leaders. We pray that you would walk away from this episode encouraged by the grace of Jesus amidst your doubts. Remember to share if it's helpful! "I think I just want you to know that you have a church that is willing and ready and really excited to walk through this season with you. You're not immature for asking questions, you're not wrong for asking questions. It actually shows a depth about you to wrestle through really hard things. And so, I feel really privileged in this moment in history, of all the moments in human history that God could put me and you guys in, that he would put us here in the city of Austin, Texas with absolute love for students at University of Texas and every campus represented here in the city of Austin. We feel really privileged to walk alongside you in this season of life. And so I think, I just want to say lean in, we're not afraid of your questions, and we don't want you to be afraid to ask even the hardest things." –Aaron Ivey

2: Who Should I Vote For? With Andre Grey

In this episode, Tyler and MJ sat down with Andre Grey, Pastor at The Austin Stone's South Congregation. Listen in as we talk about politics, loving your neighbor and who Christians should vote for.
