GRIP Live Podcast

Live Podcast For Men

GRIP LIVE Podcast - New this year at HNOJ is a LIVE recording of the GRIP podcast. This is a podcast hosted by Jeff Peterson and features parishioner Todd Johnson and Chris Kostelc. Each recording of this 5 part series featuresa letter of the word GRIP (with an introduction) and a special guest. 

GRIP - is a acronym for Grouping, Reading Scripture, Investing in faith, and Praying daily. Todd Johnson developed this 4 piece strategy for men to hold onto Jesus. If we do these 4 things we will stay in God's GRIP and not fall into the world's grip.

What's a "LIVE" podcast?

Remember how they used to say at the beginning of sitcoms, "Filmed before a LIVE studio auidence." This is basically that. We'll fill a room full of awesome men, offer them appropriate beverages and snacks, and welcome all to a time of fellowship and conversation. We will intro what is going to happen and then the recording equipment will be turned on. Jeff, Todd, Chris, and the special guests will discuss life, faith, and how to get a grip. 

Who are the guests?

We don't have all our special guests nailed down, but right now Fr. Colin Jones, former associate priest at HNOJ, will be joining the introductory episode at the kickoff on Sept. 16. 

Will we be able to hear the podcast later?

Absolutely. If you have to miss or if you want to share the conversation with a friend, we will be releasing the episodes of the podcast after a bit of editing. 

If you want listen to a previous version of the GRIP podcast, check out this episode from Season 1.

Can I miss one or do I need to attend all the episodes?

Of course, it's fine. The goodnews is that we are recording these things and you can keep in the loop even if you are out of town for one. 

Can I invite guys from other parishes or churches?

Absolutely. In fact, we already have. We have reached out to men's clubs and groups from many of our surrounding parishes and invited them to attend and to even send a representative to hop on the pod and be introduced. Do PLEASE do invite our buddies, that one guy from work you like, and even your weird neighbor. The more the merrier.
