Storytelling that's transparent, transportative & transformative.


These are real stories of real people: we don’t shy away from vulnerability.

These stories both compel you and equip you to make a Kingdom impact.

“The storytelling here compels believers to act.”


This is

Two Coins.


Hi there! We’re a team that gets fired up about stories of people around the globe who give their “two coins” — people who have experienced firsthand how God’s love has carried them through adversity and who now work to bring that love to others in small but impactful ways. The episodes on Two Coins spotlight these stalwart individuals as well as the nonprofit organizations with which they work. By listening, you’ll learn about global issues and grow to know more of God’s heart for his children. Our hope and prayer is that these stories uplift you, inspire you and spur you on toward redemptive possibilities!
