WHY DID WE START DMU PODCAST & SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE?

We started this podcast and subscription service because we observed a lack of guidance, resources, and community specifically tailored to helping people embrace a Christ-like view amidst the noise of worldly influences. Uh oh, he said “Christ-like.” Look, we’re not here to cram our beliefs down your throat, but our relationship with the Lord defines our moral framework, and the lens through which we see the world – and if our perspective speaks to you and helps with your personal journey, then we are fulfilled.

1 Corinthians 13: 4-7 says, “4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

Like you, we’re imperfect, but we strive for you to see these qualities in us, and our content. This is how we define a better path.

WHAT PROBLEM ARE WE TRYING TO SOLVE?

In our fast-paced world, marked by its’ endless distractions: 

  • Patience and kindness are on the decline.

  • We are surrounded by a culture of envy, boasting, and pride. 

  • Media dishonors others and is self-seeking. 

  • People are easily angered and seek to keep a record of wrongs. 

  • Pop culture seems to delight in evil, and news outlets and politicians have made an art of conveying false truths. 

  • Our governments and our communities are failing to protect those they serve; and

  • As a global community, we don’t trust one another. 

The world needs future leaders, and we are here to build and inspire them!
