Phil Vischer, Part 1: How Pastors Can Guide the Creatives in Their Churches

“Before I launched VeggieTales, I actually went to David C. Cook Publishers and pitched them on the idea…of a show like ‘David Letterman’ for Christian teens.”

“I said to myself one day…‘I wonder if anyone else would want to listen to the conversations I’m having with myself in my car.’”

“For a while it was, ‘Hey, VeggieTales fans, Phil’s doing a podcast’…and then we got to 2016 and Donald Trump and we woke up the next morning going, ‘What the heck just happened?’ And started talking honestly about our concerns about 80% of white evangelicals supporting Donald Trump and what it meant for the church.”

“We ended up building a pretty substantial audience of pastors, ministry leaders and then young Christians. I would say our target audience is the kid who grew up in the evangelical church who’s now standing at the back door of the church saying, ‘Give me just one good reason not to walk out.’”
