In the first episode of the Same Jesus podcast, Russell Joyce and A.J. Swoboda, Ph.D., begin to unpack the identity of Foursquare, why Foursquare is so obsessed with Hebrews 13:8, and what the “four-fold gospel” even means.

The Same Jesus podcast is hosted by Russell Joyce and A.J. Swoboda.

Russell Joyce is senior pastor of Faith Center, a Foursquare church located in Eugene, Ore. He is also the director of Foursquare Multiply, which seeks to train, network and multiply the next generation of Foursquare churches across the U.S.

A.J. Swoboda, Ph.D., is assistant professor of Bible, Theology and World Christianity at Bushnell University. He has written several books, and he planted and pastored a Foursquare church in Portland, Ore., called Theophilus that continues to worship to this day.

Thanks to our special guest Tammy Dunahoo, DLd, who previously served as general supervisor of The Foursquare Church. She recently transitioned to the role of executive dean of Portland Seminary, part of George Fox University in Portland, Ore.
