Their approach is genuine and heartfelt, aiming to bring hope and positivity to those in need.

What inspired you to start your ministry?

We are called to spread the good word and to try to reach people outside of the church and we wanted to do it a little differently based on experiences that we have had.


We have tried so many ways to find fulfillment in our lives and found that what the world has to offer is only temporary and often detrimental but having a relationship with God is everlasting and adds value to our lives. We want others to feel what we feel and to know the true happiness that comes with having a relationship with God just as we have found.    


How does your ministry contribute to the local community?

By supporting locals who are trying to better our community or simply need help through prayer, donations and whatever else may be needed. We find that being hands-on is very important as well, For example: supplying goods to local animal shelters, supporting local events for our veterans, police, fire, EMS and kids back to school programs, and whatever else that may be needed in the community.


Working on changing the mindset of those around us by encouraging others that there is hope. 


Can you share a memorable experience or success story related to your ministry or podcast?

Our ministry/podcast is still fairly new but our first event supporting Hill City Warriors was kind of surreal and was the moment that we realized things were coming together as we had hoped and prayed for.


Also, coworkers mentioning our podcast and talking about how much they loved it is still kind of surreal. 


What challenges have you faced in building your ministry and podcast, and how have you overcome them?

For Scoot, I feel that getting past the fear of talking openly and getting past the fear of being judged.


For Pit, having patience and getting all the pieces put together to get the ministry and podcast going. We overcame that through prayer and knowing and trusting that God will allow things to happen his way and in his time.


What makes your ministry and podcast unique?

Because we are real and we speak to people the way we want to be spoken to, we treat people the way we would have wanted to be treated throughout our lives, with respect, dignity, and empathy.


We admit our flaws and we try help others learn from our own mistakes. We set out to do things differently than what has been done in the past.


How do you see your ministry evolving in the future?

By growing in ways that allow us to help more people and have more resources to get those in need taken care of and lead as many people to God as we can. We really want to be known in the community as people that can be counted on to make a difference. Would love to be able to do the ministry and podcast full-time.  


Do you have a special message that you'd like to share with the community through this article?

First and foremost know that God loves you and he is waiting on you to call upon him. Know that we are a ministry that has set out to do things a little differently. We live by the values of God, family, country and community, and we know that if we all come together that all things are possible and all storms can be weathered and hard times can be overcome.


We want you to know that true, real, good people still exist in this crazy world. We want to be that light that shines on a dark day and be that hope when all hope is lost. We want people to know that no matter where they are in life that there are people out there willing to help. 


Psalm 40:2:

''He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand." 


Much love from Pit and Scoot, Disciples Of God
