Eric Nevins, Founder of Christian Podcasters Association 

Eric is the host of the podcast Halfway There, a show about honest conversations with ordinary Christians about today’s Christian experience. Each episode shares the personal story of a Christian guest and one’s journey in their faith. The variety of topics ranging from finding purpose in life, healing from traumatic experiences, and reconciling between the faith of Christianity with the conflicting traditions of the Church in America are covered weekly.

He earned a Master’s Degree in Divinity after attending seminary while raising a family with his wife, Jodi. Income was a need, and Eric eventually found himself in a banking career that felt like it was sucking the soul out of him.

Today, Eric has discovered the power of networking in how it has led him to book great guests on his shows, but also in building a business that also serves as a ministry to other Christian podcasters. On a dare in a Facebook group, he started The Christian Podcasters Association where Christian podcasters could encourage each other and experience the benefits of networking.

If you’re a Christian and a podcaster, connect with other Christian podcasters at the Christian Podcasters Association Facebook Group.
