In this episode, Ben, John Paul, and Julie talk about how during this time of social distancing it can be difficult to maintain a missional mindset. The Gospel compels us to share the good news of Christ with others. Encourage students to reach other students, friends, or share with a family member, about how God has been working in their lives during this time.
