Stonecroft’s Ears to Speak podcast acknowledges that often we as Christians haven’t been great listeners or learners in relationships. We want to inspire Christians to practice good listening and communication skills, especially in relationships with people who have a different faith or worldview. We believe God can use these practices to build a foundation of trust that will lead to open conversations about Jesus Christ and faith.
Hosts: Maddison Berciunas, Outreach and International Coordinator, and Jessica Leep Fick, Evangelism Resources Director
Maddison is a native of Kansas City, where she currently lives with her husband, Caleb. Their household is growing quickly as they foster Maddison’s 7-year-old sister, Mia, and recently welcomed their first baby, Flora Bea, born Aug. 26. Maddison loves visiting local coffee shops, traveling, and spending time with family, including her six siblings.
Before joining Stonecroft’s Home Office staff, she worked with college students through InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. Jessica and her husband, Dave, enjoy exploring Kansas City rivers and lakes with their two sons, Reuben and Oswald.
