What is Here To There With Carolyn Taketa?

We focus on moving from Here, wherever you are as an individual in your personal life, leadership, or church ministry, to There, the preferred future that God has for us.

Each monthly episode features a conversation with someone in small groups ministry, authors, thought leaders, and pastors. We discuss topics that can be helpful, informative, or even powerful for you the listener.
