Miracle In The Cow Pasture (w/ BJ Rutledge) – Episode 206

BJ Rutledge knows firsthand how Jesus can use ordinary people to do extraordinary things. His obedience to step out and plant a church in the small town of Paradise, Texas, resulted in hundreds of people coming to know Jesus personally over the past 20 years.

You’ll be encouraged as you hear BJ’s story of the “Miracle In The Cow Pasture.” God’s faithfulness is on full display as BJ recalls how simply saying “yes” to the prompting of the Holy Spirit created an avenue for lasting impact.
