“Welcome to Mission in 5 the Podcast, where I ask five simple questions to ministry practitioners to learn more about who they are and where they see God moving in their community.”

 MI5 is a podcast designed to introduce ministry practitioners in the Midwest fostering connection between faith and context. Guests include pastors, authors, professors, journalists, spiritual directors, laity, and other faith leaders in our region.

The five questions that shape each conversion include:

  1. Who are you? (Tell us a little bit about yourself)
  2. How did you get here? (To your ministry setting)
  3. What moves you? (passion, hobby, or interest)
  4. What is happening at (ministry context)?
  5. What is next? (What is next for the guest personally, professionally, or next for the ministry context)

All four seasons MI5 can be found on your favorite podcast platforms including:

2021 Region Expo Guest Kelli Foreman Mission in 5

My Guest today is Kelli Foreman, the Assistant Executive Director of Kodiak Baptist Mission and American Baptist Home Missionary. She has a full and diverse set of responsibilities at Kodiak that include grant writing, directing the before and after school programming, overseeing the only grade-A goat dairy on the Island, and is a rather imaginative social media content creator. Her husband Stephen in addition to his work with Kodiak Baptist Mission is a counselor for the local school district. They are Nebraska natives with ties to Gibbon and Fremont, and met at the Moses Merrill Camp and Conference Center.   I really enjoyed my conversation with Kelli and look forward to hearing more from her and Stephen during our “Say Yes to the Call” Region Expo on October 1 and 2, 2021. Unfortunately, they cannot attend our event in person, but will be joining us through the magic of a live zoom call to learn more about their callings to serve at Kodiak Baptist Mission and in school counseling and how they invite others to “Say Yes to the Call” to follow Christ in their everyday lives and vocations.
