Join Ben and the podcast crew as they talk with Yasmine Williams Woods about how partnering with local organizations can have an incredible impact on your ministry and can help facilitate discipleship.
“Going to places that we wouldn’t normally go and become a part of it, to live it firsthand, is transformational and is essential for us as believers.” – Yasmine Williams Woods
“It is a beautiful thing when we think of discipleship as an opporitunity to cherish one another as opposed to providing charity for one another.” – Yasmine Williams Woods
