In this edition of the Ministry Minded Podcast, I am joined by Dan van Voorhis and Bob Hiller to reflect on ESPN’s eponymous doc-series, ‘The Last Dance’, which interweaves a chronicle of the controversy-laden 1998 title run of the Chicago Bulls with an examination of the life and legacy of Michael Jordan.
Bob Hiller serves as the senior pastor of Community Lutheran Church in Escondido, California, where he lives with his wife and three kids. He also ministers as the content editor for The Craft of Preaching.
Dan Van Voorhis is married to Beth Anne and is the father to two sons. He works for 1517 as an author, historian, teacher, and speaker. He also spends his time writing, hosting, and producing podcasts, including The Soul of Christianity and The Christian History Almanac.
