In this episode, Ben demands an explanation for why David hates the word “balanced.”
David shares his deep conviction that nothing significant is accomplished by balanced people, with a balanced effort.
He makes the case that the life of Jesus demonstrated extraordinary effort, devotion, and faith and that if we want to change the world, we must live a similarly imbalanced life.
Brian "Head" Welch from the band Korn joins the podcast and shares how he stays spiritually healthy amid his crazy life.
We discuss intimacy with Jesus and the power of His promises!
Brian also shares his most embarrassing on-stage moment.

In our latest podcast, we talk with bible teacher and radio personality, Steve Brown. Steve shares his insight from over 50 years of public ministry.
We discuss whether self-righteousness is the most significant barrier to people coming to know Jesus, and whether our holiness has anything to do with our witness.
In this episode of the podcast, Luke returns and joins David and Ben as they dig into the topic of relevance.
Due to high demand the guys take another look at the idea of how should followers of Jesus should respond to divisive issues in culture today.
They ask, how can a Christian be equipped to engage and challenge secular culture without losing their heart for people and focus on the Cross?
A few weeks back we discussed the cultural phenomena Game of Thrones and whether it’s acceptable for followers of Jesus to be watching it. This created quite the stir and generated a ton of feedback/comments/and robust dialogue. In this week’s podcast we revisited the topic and dove deeper into some of the key issues that came up.

This episode of the Provoke and Inspire Podcast features Nashville producer/songwriter Joshua Silverberg. He shares his amazing stories of praying for people to be healed and seeing God move in power. We dig into some of the skepticism surrounding the supernatural and ask questions like “Does God desire for every person to be healed?” and “What do we say to someone who has never experienced God’s healing despite years of prayer?”
Don’t miss this critical conversation!
With literally millions of people watching and talking about Game of Thrones, the regulars felt it was important to raise the question: “Where do we, as followers of Jesus, draw the line in deciding which movies or series we shouldn't watch?” Their intense discussion revolves around the question of whether this decision simply comes down to a personal choice between an individual and God, or if adopting that mentality might be another form of relativism.
But don’t worry, it’s not all intense! David will still make you laugh (or cringe) with his latest Random Story!
Continuing in their series on how to reach the secular world, the regulars talk about the need for having God’s heart. They look at the importance of making the decision to love our neighbors and that our actions can’t just be based on whether we feel something or not. They then discuss what it really means to have God’s broken heart for the world and how without it, we are really just being religious in our attempts to reach people for Jesus.
This is a big one - possibly the largest challenge and most important theme when it comes to our social media engagement. How you portray yourself publicly matters. The impression you give to others matters.
You’ve heard the regulars talk about the importance of praying and seeking God many times on this podcast, but what does that look like? How do we seek God with a desperate heart?
Ben, Chad, David and Luke continue the discussion around this subject and why it seems to have become a dead ritual. They share their personal experiences on the matter and then give some practical examples of how you can grow in your personal prayer life.
Oh yes… and David returns to Virgin Man in his Random Story…
