Episode 121: Being Church on a Bike with Travis Norvell

A Minneapolis Pastor saw the world around his church differently when he got on his bike.

My guest today is someone that is also interested in transportation, but he’s taken his interest one step further making it an issue of discipleship.

Travis Norvell is the pastor of Judson Baptist Church in Minneapolis and a decade ago he decided to put his money where his mouth is by giving up his car and getting around Minneapolis via bike, public transportation or on foot. When he did this he started to see the world around his congregation in a very different way. Travis has become an advocate in helping Christians get out of their cars once in a while and move around their world in a different mode of transportation to see what they might be missing. Tarvis is the author of A Church on the Move: A Practical Guide for Ministry in the Community where he talks about his story and how you can become more familiar with the neighborhood around your church.
