Saying yes to Jesus - Interview with the Founders of Altitude Mission
In this interview, you will hear Will and Lara's story of coming to faith and their incredible bravery in starting Altitude mission. We wanted to highlight the ministry and work that Altitude does as we consider them valuable Kingdom partners and are so excited about what they are doing. Their story is inspirational and challenging in the best of ways.
Will & Lara oversee Altitude Mission and the pastoral care of our Altituders each season. When they’re not skiing or running a church plant in the mountains, they live by the sea on the Isle of Wight. They have 4 children – who are now much faster than them on skis – and Lily, a golden retriever.

Missional Community- An interview with Ollie Jeffs
Josh chats to Ollie, 2010 Soul Edge Alumnus, about his journey as the Project Manager of the Pelham. "The Pelham is a 100 year old railway hotel turned Community Center. Starting life in the early 1900s, it ceased trading in 2009 and the Victorian building, left empty for a number of years fell into considerable disrepair. The charity was formed to purchase the property in 2012 with a vision to renovate the building and create a community hub in an area which is officially one of the 10 per cent most deprived areas of the country."
The Path Less Taken
In this interview, Josh and Kiri talk with Emily and Peter who are two of our incredible Soul Edge Alumni.

In this episode, Kiri and I talk about why running and fitness are such an important part of the Soul Edge program.
We unpack how our theological lens informs the way that we interact with the physical world. We dive into the importance of having a theology that does not just divide the physical and the spiritual. We explain how running and movement is not only healthy but can be a powerful way to engage in worship and communion with God from this place of a sacramental understanding.
We also let you in on some practical tips that we have learned over the years of doing life and keeping fitness and health a priority.
Friends from Atlanta
This week Josh and Kiri connect with Luke and Dana in Atlanta from our Soul Edge Plus Community. Since many of us in the Prairies and the UK are removed from what is happening in the States, we asked Luke and Dana to share their insights and help us shed light on these critical issues. This is just one piece of the puzzle to help us learn how we can best love our neighbours wherever we are. Dana teaches Church history as well as US history in a school in Atlanta as well as holding an Mdiv from Candler School of Theology and Luke (a 2016 Alumnus) now works for Camp all American (connected to Pinnacle Church) as head of leadership development and discipleship.
