On youth ministry, law, and gospel with RJ Grunewald.

Ministry Minded, Episode 1.

In this premier episode of Ministry Minded, I was afforded the opportunity to sit down with RJ and dive into the theology of the distinction between God’s law and God’s gospel, and its extreme significance for youth ministers and parents alike.

RJ is the associate pastor of Faith Lutheran Church in Troy, Michigan, where he lives and serves with his wife and three children.
