In this episode we're joined by Professor Christo Lombaard from the University of Pretoria. This is a bit of an anomaly in the series as it was recorded close to a year ago. Here we explore postsecularism, a new era following secularism alongside secularism.

You can find Christo's publications on Academia.

We're joined by Karl Teichert, director of OC Africa, for two episodes. In this episode we hear about the research conducted by OC Africa into the training needs of church leaders in South Africa. This work is profound in that leaders self-reported a lack of relational engagement. Church leaders are starved for intimacy with God and longing for mentors. This is a deep dive that frames the research and dials into the need for relational engagement with God.
