Russell & Megan Marshall: Radical obedience to God’s call

In this episode of the God’s Revolution podcast, we’re talking with Russell and Megan Marshall, a young couple who heard God’s call to leave good jobs and a comfortable house in the suburbs to develop redemptive relationships with residents of an ethnically and economically diverse apartment complex in a transitional area of their city.

Russell and Megan walk us through the challenges and blessings they have encountered as they have done what all believers are called to do: Listen to God’s call and follow him in obedience to love our neighbors and make disciples of Jesus wherever we live, work, and play.
