We are always looking for the person who would be a wonderful fit for our podcast. Here are some ideas but we are certainly not limited to these!

  • Taking care of aging parents while your children are still young
  • Running a backyard neighborhood camp during the summer
  • Leading Father and Son pre-teen Bible study

These are just a few ideas. If you are interested in these or any topic, you can contact me at [email protected]. Be sure to listen to several of the podcasts to get a feel for what we're looking for.
