The Focused Center Podcast is a monthly audio program featuring Bishop Mike Lowry along with lay & clergy leaders from around the Central Texas Conference – and even some from outside the conference and/or the denomination.

Each month’s program highlights some of the best practices and innovative ministries happening in the church and our conference. Alongside Bishop Lowry’s blog, This Focused Center, these podcasts are intended to be a resource for leaders doing ministry in the United Methodist Church.

The name for the program is born out of the Message translation of II Corinthians 5:14-15 and represents Bishop’s Lowry’s firm conviction that the best practices of ministry are those that are focused in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.
