The Practical Christian Podcast

My name is Travis Albritton, and I want to help you become a more effective Christian. If you’re like me, your life is constantly teetering between being too busy and absolute chaos. And because you have so much going on it can be difficult to find the time to focus on your personal, spiritual growth. But you shouldn’t have to be in the full-time ministry in order to make an impact for God. You can be an effective Christian AND live your life. Every day I’ll share a practical tip, trick, hack, or strategy that you can implement right away. I’ll cover topics like how to study your Bible, talking to your friends about Jesus, dealing with sin and your life, and much more. I don’t want you to have a stagnant relationship with God. I don’t want you to lose your passion for God. And I don’t want you to be ineffective in serving the people around you. I want you to have a thriving relationship with God. I want you to be on fire for God and his church. And I want you to become the difference m... Show More
