Introducing the UMC LEAD Podcast

Today we’re excited to announce the official launch of the UMC LEAD Podcast! The first “season” has been recorded and will be based around checking in with our speakers from our very first LEAD conference, which was held in Las Vegas, in 2012.

This first episode kicks things off with Rob Rynders, Brandon Lazarus, and Justin Halbersma talking about the origins of UMC LEAD, the 2017 conference, and thoughts about the future of The UMC.

We’re still learning a lot about what makes for a great podcast experience, so there’s definitely going to be some rough spots and awkwardness along the way. We’d love to hear your feedback so we can make things even better for season 2. Please feel free to drop us a line at leadumc@gmail.com.
