As we’re following Jesus, we are submitting our hearts and lives to Him.  Your job is to promote Jesus in every facet of life.  God decides when to promote you in those facets of life.  In this episode, Kevin and Samuel talk about following the Jesus of the Christmas season into the new year and how to lead others to do the same.


Samuel & Katie are passionate about life, family, friends, church, and most importantly all about Jesus! For them, life and ministry focus on strengthening, encouraging and equipping The Church through discipleship resources, church leadership coaching, and minister with a prophetic edge. Calling the Church to know and follow Jesus passionately, be filled with the Holy Spirit, and bring the hope of the gospel to every corner of the earth!

Samuel, Katie, and their beautiful daughters, Mercedes and Kenzie, are on the pastoral team at Awaken Church in San Diego, with their pastors,  Jurgen & Leanne Matthesius. They travel full time ministering to churches and working to help church leaders develop their strategy for discipleship and growth!

A little more of the backstory: They both grew up in Minnesota and responded to the ministry call from a young age and launched into full time ministry in 2003 after Samuel graduated from Champions Centre College and Katie from Hillsong College. They’ve served and led as youth and young adult pastors, directed Champions Centre College, lead community outreach efforts, and now travel full time encouraging and strengthening the Church through preaching, writing and consulting.
