Pastor Nar :: 3.24

Pastor Nar

this week on the show we talk with church planter, blogger, podcaster and #outlawpreacher Pastor Nar.

Pastor Nar talks about his upbringing in a fundamental evangelical church and how that contrasted with the relationships he was building with folks on the streets of Hollywood. he also talks about how he ultimately found permission and freedom in following God beyond the traditions of his youth. Nar also tells us some of the history and background behind the #outlawpreacher hashtag and how he got involved.
