I’m excited to introduce today’s Faith Flix guest, my son-in-law, Clay Herd. You’ve probably noticed his name before as he’s done guest reviews for me in the past. Next week he and Brittany will be doing Faith Flix Facebook Live interviews at NRB Convention so you’ll get to see him in action. Clay is a powerful preacher with a unique ministry to gamers via Twitch, an online platform similar to Youtube, but geared for video gamers.
I connected with Sunday Burquest in a Facebook group and was immediately fascinated by her story. She’s a wife and mother to four kids, a Bible College graduate, former youth and young adult pastor, a breast cancer survivor, a cast member from Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X, and now a motivational speaker. She’s got a lot to share and I’m excited to share her amazing story.
