026.0 - Jim Hancock - Part 1 Far too many people in Youth Ministry today do not know the name Jim Hancock.&nbsp; He is a pioneer in the field.&nbsp; We got lucky enough to sit down with him and talk about what he has been up to lately.&nbsp; In this first part of our interview, we talk about EdgeTV, the movie Breaking Away, the messy middle, and the importance of resisting “resolution” in certain contexts.&nbsp; It’s a brilliant conversation.&nbsp; Enjoy!
027.0 - Jim Hancock - Part 2 In part two of our conversation, Jim tells us about a project he recently worked on called “The Project of Us | 3 Practices for Crossing the Difference Divide” - It’s incredible and you should check it out immediately. (Check it out at https://vimeo.com/222440447). The Js have a great conversation about the importance of living outside the bubble and exploring the balance of the people we surround ourselves with.
