E21 Rev. Gloria Azikiwe

Please welcome Pastor Gloria Azikiwe to the podcast! This episode is rich with passion, stories, and blessings. Gloria was born in Nairobi, Kenya and she has planted churches in both Nairobi and Thika. She has a passion to bring the Gospel to the lost and broken wherever God might lead her. And Gloria has the honor of being my first international guest!



In this episode, I talk about how God leads us in ministry. I'm pulling from personal experience as well as some of the timeless ways God has spoken through the ages. Come, let's wrestle with God together! 

I had a great time interviewing Dr. Barbara Brown Zikmund! She is a fascinating person with so many incredible stories. Dr. Zikmund was a professor, dean, and seminary president. She ministered during the 1960s, 70s, 80s, and 90s. But don't think she is retired and sitting around collecting social security. BBZ continues to do the work of the Church right where she lives. 

In part 1, we talk about her call, her decision whether or not to have children, and some of the opposition she faced regarding women in leadership. You will need headphones for this episode, but it will be worth it. 

See BBZ Wikipedia page here.

Her books include: 

Clergy Women: An Uphill Calling

Hidden Histories in the United Church of Christ 




Please welcome, Evangelist, Melissa Wright, to the podcast! It was great sitting down with Melissa to hear some of her journey in ministry. Melissa is fun to listen to and you will enjoy her enthusiasm and boldness. You can connect with Melissa through Dan Bohi Ministries.

You can also follow the ministry on Facebook. 

You can now find the podcast on iTunes and PlayGoogle 


In this episode, the tables are turned and I am interviewed by Jen Noricks. We've been friends for 19 years and she brought the questions to the table. It was fun to walk down memory lane a little. 

In one part, I mention how God healed my marriage. You can hear that story in another podcast.

In this episode, I interview Pastor Jennifer Jensen. She is a re-start pastor in the Chicago area. Jennifer has a great story of transformation and God's faithfulness in her life. Check it out!


In this episode, I caught up with Rev. Angela Alvarado at a leadership conference. Angela is a church planter and we chatted a few minutes in between workshops. I promise to bring her back for a longer conversation in the future. 

I also talk about why we can't sustain happy-clappy for long periods of time. And I share my observations of the conference.

In this episode, I share ten resources that have helped me as an introvert-intuitive, especially in the last year. Even if you are an extrovert, I believe you will find some good reminders of self-care.
