You could call him my mentor, but he never knew my name for the first 8 years he was mentoring me. You could call him one of the founding Fathers of the Faith and Work Movement, but he would tell you there were many more that came before him. You could call many things, but Martha and I have grown fond of calling him friend. Os Hillman with MarketplaceLeaders.org is just one of 125 collaborators on www.AwakenPodcastNetwork.com. He was so excited about this demonstration of collaboration within the Faith and Work Movement that he interviewed us to find out all about the history of where the www.AwakenPodcastNetwork.com came from and what we plan on doing with it. Enjoy the conversation between the three of us.
It’s not often that Jim and Martha Brangenberg are asked to share their story. God is moving in unique ways, and after being entrepreneurs and running their businesses, God directed them to start iWork4Him. Collaboration has always been a core value for the Brangenbergs, and recently God gave them the idea to put that into practice. In 2013 when iWork4Him first hit the radio waves, there were not many other talk shows around Faith and Work. Now, many years later, through the growth of podcasting, there are literally hundreds of Christ-followers that are sharing their stories, encouraging listeners, and proclaiming the gospel through podcasts. These podcasts can be found if you know the Host personally, are aware of their work or ministry, or through a random search in the podcast apps. Where can you go to find an assortment of podcasts that might help the listener in their specific line of work? Where can you go to peruse the variety of voices speaking about faith and work? Until now, this hasn’t been possible.
