Ryan's special guests for this season are made up of local pastors, students, Conference employees and church members in the Carolinas and employees of Southern Adventist University.
The subject of a "Prayer Life" can be a touchy one. Some may feel subjected to judgment if their's is compared to yours. For some, they may desire a deeper better prayer life while other's think theirs is sufficient. Join Ryan and his guests as the dive head first into their perspectives and personal experiences with their own Prayer Life Journey.
Let us introduce you to this episode's special guests:
