The Jeremy Van Valkenburg Interview

For Episode 008, we’re heading back to Transformation Church in Oklahoma to sit down with Production Director Jeremy Van Valkenburg!

Honest. Open. Transparent. That’s the only way we can describe how Jeremy graciously shares his journey through the shadows of life and production. We’re talking about what it’s like to go through the real stuff life throws at us and how working in ministry means we must choose to put the everything-is-great-all-the-time mask down so we can get the help we need.
