Passing Time Devotional

Christian Talk >

Passing Time Devotional was born out of the desire to connect with the students of Shawn and Connor’s youth ministry. Recognizing that faith grows the more we encounter Jesus, the pair began recording small devotional lessons for students to access throughout the week. Each episode is short, originally intended to be listened to during the passing time in between high school classes, hence the name “Passing Time Devotional.” The podcast has since grown and expanded to not just be meant for students, but as a resource for anyone looking to connect with Christ and spend time engaged in His word.
