BIG News! In The Trenches is coming back, and we’re coming back with a brand new co-host! On August 31st, Jared Huntley will be joined by Logan Douglas, a church planter in Iceland, to kick off a brand new season of In The Trenches!

While we will miss having Matt Hess regularly, he has still promised to listen every week and be our biggest fan!

We will continue to be committed to providing content that is from guys in the trenches, for guys in the trenches. We aren’t “experts”. We’re two pastors and church planters seeking to make disciples and multiply churches in hard to reach places who want to encourage and equip others like us.

So whether you are in full time, vocational minisry or you are a lay ministry leader, if you are in the trenches and actively seeking to make disciples, equip the saints for ministry, and plant churches among the nations, then this podcast is for you.

We will have a new episode each Monday and we will also regularly post on the In The Trenches blog. We are so excited about this next chapter in the life of In The Trenches! Please be praying for us as we prepare for this new season.

Here’s a little bit more about the hosts, Logan and Jared…
