In this episode, Patti and Matt give us a big picture preview of what we can expect at our "Women As Forces For Gospel Advance" conference in May. This includes information about Friday night's pre-conference and a special snapshot of the content on Saturday. Patti also tells us what we can look forward to in Season 4 of our podcast. You can expect to hear a variety of voices who tell their own Kalos story, including other pastors, teams who are leading Kalos, and different women in the life of our church.
2: PATRONELLAS ON LEADING KALOS TOGETHER
In this episode, Patti sits down with Clint and Andea Patronella to hear their Kalos Story. The Patronellas are native Texans turned Bostonian when they planted Seven Mile Road Waltham. They share about their vision for leading Kalos early in their church plant and their commitment for equipping the women they are given towards gospel partnership. We also hear about Andea's own experience going through the track at Seven Mile Road Melrose.
3: MORANS ON ESTABLISHING A KALOS TRACK
In this episode, we hear another Kalos Story. Patti sits down with Matt and Laurel Moran to talk about their experience with Kalos. The Morans were instrumental in the early days of developing the Kalos curriculum at Seven Mile Road Melrose. Matt was on staff as pastor/elder and Laurel was among the first group of women to go through a year together with the Kalos content. Together, they are now leading Kalos Track at their church outside of Buffalo, NY. In their conversation with Patti they share some realities of leading together, as a married couple, and how they've adapted the Kalos content for their own unique make-up of women and church context.
4: A SIT DOWN WITH SEVEN MILE ROAD PASTORS
In this episode, we hear from some pastors who serve at Seven Mile Road Church. Justin is the Executive Pastor for all Seven Mile Road churches as well as pastor/elder for Seven Mile Malden. Tim serves as a pastor/elder for Seven Mile Melrose.
Patti, Justin, and Tim talk Kalos culture within the church from a pastoral perspective. Many questions we are asked revolve around pastoral presence. How exactly does that work? Not only do we have a pastor lead the women through the Kalos Track, but we also have the Kalos Team work directly in partnership with the pastors for gospel advance.
Pastors Tim and Justin share their story and give a snapshot of what it's like to serve in a church where the women are mobilized to be co-laborers in the gospel.
5: THAT AWESOME CONVERSATION WITH MATT'S MOM
In this episode, Patti talks with Margaret Kruse, aka Matt's mom, aka one the most holy and feminine forces for gospel advance our church has ever seen, about the impact that valuing young women in the church and modeling for them how an embrace of their feminine callings can drive forward the mission of God.
6: CHELSEA & LAUREL SHARE THEIR STORIES
In this episode, we hear the stories from two women who have gone through the Kalos Track. Andea, who shared on an earlier episode with her husband, Clint, is co-leading a Kalos Track at their church, Seven Mile Road Waltham. Chelsea serves on the Kalos Team at Seven Mile Road Melrose. Both women share their unique experiences about spending a year going through the Kalos Track. This wraps up season 4, Kalos Stories.
6: THE BIG CONFERENCE RECAP
In this episode, Patti and Matt give glory to God by recounting many of the highlights of our time together at the first-ever Kalos Conversations conference. If they sound giddy, it's because the day was extraordinary --- beyond any our wildest expectations.
