I’m not sure how I stumbled onto your channel, but I have enjoyed learning about Anabaptist history and the unique perspective Anabaptist’s can provide Christians today.

Once the episode has been planned, our filming team meets with the guest, either in person or remotely.

3. Editing

Here the episode receives hours of editing, review, and preparation to be released on our platforms.

4. Publishing
