Join Ben and the podcast crew as they talk with Jaslyn Dixon, Gospel Care Director at Reality Church LA. Jaslyn talks about her passion for providing Gospel Care to everyone in the church and how a church can use Gospel care in evangelism and discipleship.
“Care happens everywhere. We don’t want to just export care, we want to be care informed and contextualize care to the sphere that it is in.” – Jaslyn Dixon
“Growth and healing and care and equipping are two sides of the same coin.” – Jaslyn Dixon
