Bridging the Generation Gap with Val O’Brien

This week we sit down with Val O’Brien to talk about bridging the generation gap in disciple making. It’s a great conversation with insights on making disciples through the generations.

Val recently joined the Sonlife team and will be helping out with the Traverse project. We are excited about this chance to spend time listening to a younger generation of leaders. Through this our hope is to better understand how we can continue to equip ministry leaders.
