Let's Get Practical

Darrel Girardier

Hello... I'm Darrel Girardier and I'm the Digital Strategy Director for Brentwood Baptist Church. This podcast is about church communications from a practical standpoint. It’s about what works and what doesn’t. It’s about helping you cut through all of the clutter and noise, and getting straight to the point. No interviews, no hour-long murder mysteries or sports talk. Just me getting straight to the point.
