Meet the Cast

James Johnson

Hey guys, I’m James.  I’ve been following Jesus Christ since 2010 and it’s been up and down and all over since then.  The one thing I know for sure is that God is able.  He is willing and able to meet every need in every circumstance.

I’m married, have two kids, work a 9-5 job, and volunteer in my church.  I have a passion for men’s and youth ministry.  I believe many of the issues we face today can be improved by men stepping up and filling their role as leader in their family and community.  And I believe this next generation needs to know the truth about life, and guidance along the way.

Paul Salinas

My name is Paul Salinas. I started walking with God in December 2016. I have been married for 11 years and have three dogs. I am involved in youth ministry at New Life Church in Virginia Beach, Va. I am excited for the next chapter of life and the opportunity God has given me.

Adam Tracey

My name is Adam Tracey. I am married and have two kids. I am a Sr. Project Manager with a background in databases and web development. I have been going to church for about 10 years; however, I was baptized after about 9 years. For me it was important to be sure I meant what I said I was. I was not going to accept falling victim to blind faith. I needed to be sure of this, so I knew I could truly invest. I found a steady diet of Apologetic learning helped me immensely.

While it has been difficult at times and I did consider throwing in the towel a few times, I am much stronger now for having put in the time. The rewards have far outweighed the struggle.

Jason Van Winkle

Jason was born in a little town called Prosser, WA many years ago. When he was about 11 years old his family moved to Mesa, then Apache Junction, AZ. When you ask him where home is, he’ll say: “home is with my wife”. But, he has lots of family and old friends in those aforementioned places. When he was 18 he went and did some government work. During that time, he found the love of his life and married her, and then they brought two awesome children into this world.
Going to many different places, he finally ended up in Virginia Beach. There he met his cohort in silliness, Adam. Shortly thereafter, he decided to go to college. There he met James and then started making way to bring a podcast to life. Through James he met Paul. Now he wants to share his life experiences and podcast to the world. He enjoys playing his guitars and is trying to hone his craft in woodturning. He attends Real Life Christian church and wants to make the world a better place.

Sound Gopher

There are a lot of behind the scenes things that make our podcast happen.  For all the audio bits and editing involved we outsourced the work to a local sound gopher.  He is endeared to us, and the show would not be what it is without him.
