Hello Friends!

Welcome to this week's episode of #TheMissionPodcast! For those hoping to hear from Rev. Teri Hord Owens, we had to put our interview on hold for a few weeks. We look forward to connecting with her soon!

This week, I share with you some more background on my journey and how I began the process of starting and launching this podcast. Tune in next week for another special episode where we will go over some highlights from our launch week episodes and re-live some of the great moments from each of those conversations. If you have a question or would like to get a shout out on a future episode leave us a comment on our iTunes page or send me an e-mail at themissioncast@gmail.com. You can also connect with me on Twitter using the #TheMissionPodcast. Thanks so much for tuning in friends! Talk with you next week!

Some great resources that have helped me become a better learner both during Black History Month and beyond. Have something you would like me to add? Send me a message at themissioncast@gmil.com or send me a tweet using #TheMissionPodcast.
