You Can Mentor: A Christian Mentoring Podcast

Sometimes, God does something in your life that just doesn’t make any sense.  He may take something away or put you in a new position that you don’t feel like you’re qualified for.  He may move you across the country, or change the demographic of the people you thought you were called to minister to.  But at the end of the day, God’s plan supersedes yours, and that’s something Ryan Raleigh has learned.  In continuing his summer takeover series, Josh is joined by Forerunner’s K-2nd grades Coach Ryan “Big Red” Raleigh to talk through how he heard about Forerunner, why he joined the team to mentor kids without fathers, how God has used his experience to heal him of his own wounds, and ultimately why he chooses to be a coach at Forerunner.
