Who We Are?

Plain-Spoken Grace is a semi-monthly, long-form podcast hosted by Chip Forbes featuring guests that inform, encourage, and inspire Christian men in a deeper, more active faith.

Our Mission

I’ve often posed the following question – “What is it about your life as a Christian that would make someone who is not one want to be?”

Hopefully the answer to that question is a Christlikeness producing the fruits of the Spirit. What exactly does that mean? “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control; against such things there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23

Does that mean that we always get it right? No way, but it should elevate our lives to a higher calling.

Please join us in that higher calling thru conversation with friends and fellow believers as we embrace God’s love and Plain-Spoken Grace.

What We Believe

We believe that the Bible is the sacred word of God found in both the Old and New Testaments. Our hope is that these conversations will help provide God’s peace in your life. The peace mentioned in Philippians 4:7 – “And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”
