Doc’s Gospel of Grace (160)

May 24, 2023

In Episode 160, we explore Lance Latham's insights on grace, we'll celebrate his life and deepen our own spiritual understanding. I;m excited to dive into the profound depths of the Gospel of Grace. Though this divine message of love originates from Christ, it's been passionately interpreted by countless voices throughout history.

One such voice was the incomparable Lance B. Latham, a mentor whose impact I still cherish every day. Known affectionately as Doc Latham, he wore many hats: a pastor, a worship leader, an evangelist, and a Bible teacher. His remarkable legacy lives on through the Awana Youth Association he founded.

Tune in now, and let’s go bigger, better, and deeper!
