In the sixth episode of the Same Jesus podcast, Russell and A.J. take a look at Foursquare’s Pentecostal ethos, Spiritual warfare and what it means to be empowered by the Holy Spirit. Find out more about the “four-fold gospel” as well as why living under the Spirit broke down racial and class barriers for Foursquare’s founder.

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

Russell Joyce is the 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 George Butron, who serves as a global associate director for Foursquare Missions International and leads the Foursquare Global Prayer Network.
