Gamer Stories: Josh Jarvis

By Michael Mendis

For this latest Gamer Stories interview, I had the chance to sit down and chat with Josh Jarvis, a fellow gamer and a good friend of mine from church.  Among other things, Josh shared some of his thoughts and experiences growing up playing board and card games with family, and the way that community has affected the way he approaches games.  Enjoy!

Gamer Stories: Mike Perna

Continuing our interview series, I had the privilege of chatting with Mike Perna, a fellow gaming missionary who runs Innroads Ministries. Innroads is centered around the tabletop/board game scene, sharing Christ's love with board gamers and sharing the joys of board gaming with churches.  Click here to check out their website (www.inroadsministries.com), and here to visit their Facebook page.

Mike gave a great interview, talking about some of the things he loves about games and game communities, and what it looks like to be a missionary to gamers.  Enjoy!

Gamer Stories: Ben Kieffer

For the next installment of our interview series Gamer Stories, I had the pleasure of interviewing Ben Kieffer, another staff member here at Gospel & Gaming.  Ben is the Chaplain's Assistant at Lake Saint Charles Retirement Community, working with senior citizens there.  It's a demographic that most people don't associate with games, but who in fact quite enjoy playing games with one another.  Enjoy!
