Welcome to the Building Faith Podcast!

Hosted by Richard Goff and featuring Dr. Shane Koehler, Teaching Pastor at Faith Community Church in Woodstock, GA, Building Faith captures weekly, content-rich discussions about key biblical and theological matters that challenge believers to think clearly about God’s Word and its application to daily life.

Current Series:  Called to Pray

Episode 20:  Lord, Teach Us to Pray, Part 1

Do you find yourself struggling with consistency, fervency or effectiveness in prayer? Well, you are not alone. Even Jesus’ disciples struggled in this area and appealed to Him, “Lord, teach us to pray (Luke 11:1).” In this episode, we return to our series on prayer with a 2-part examination of Jesus’ simple, yet profoundly insightful instruction on how we should pray.

Episode 17:  Discipline, Intimacy & Transcendence

This is the first in a series of podcasts entitled, Called to Pray. In this episode, we pick up on our last conversation about Providence & Prayer and move into a deeper discussion about prayer and the discipline that is required for us to have intimate and transcendent fellowship with God. 


Episode 19:  Pandemic & Profound Confidence

Uncertainty, fear, anxiety. These terms might be too mild to describe what many people are experiencing right now during the coronavirus pandemic. Many concerns are mounting, not the least of which are vast concerns about the financial hardships people are, or will likely experience as a result of this unprecedented crisis. In this episode, Richard and Shane turn their attention to these concerns in what is, hopefully, a very helpful discussion about how Christians can avoid the grip of anxiety and persevere through this season of testing with a profound confidence in God. 

Episode 18:  Pandemic & Profound Love

What is, or should be distinctive about Christians as they navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic? In this special episode, Pandemic & Profound Love, we explore some of the most devastating pandemics in history and we highlight how Christians in past eras distinguished themselves by serving and sacrificing for others in profound ways.

Previous Series:  The Providence of God

Episode 16:  Providence & Prayer

This is a transition episode that will move us from our discussions on the providence of God into a new series on prayer. Where does God’s sovereignty and His working out all things according to His will intersect with our prayers? We will begin to address that important question in this new episode on Providence & Prayer.

Episode 15:  Not a Chance!

In this 3rd episode of our series on the providence of God, we explore our tendency to drift into a mystical and compartmentalized way of thinking about God’s work in our lives rather than seeing the wonder of His active and concurrent work in and through the routine, and often tedious details of life.

Episode 14:  Preservation, Cooperation & Government

In this episode, we discuss three key aspects of God’s providence found in Scripture and we expand upon some of the particular ways that our understanding of God’s providence deepens our fellowship and strengthens our walk with the Lord.

Episode 13:  Building Faith in What?

In the first episode of a new series on The Providence of God, Pastor Shane introduces us to this great doctrine and challenges us to think deeply about where we are truly placing our faith, particularly when our circumstances do not go according to plan.
