God’s Men of Influence Podcast

God’s Men of Influence, host Dino Katsiametis interviews Christian men that are leaders in their community. They discuss the different ways that they can improve the lives of the people in their community. The mission is to facilitate an environment where men can help each other be the best version of themselves and mentor each other through the task of creating a world that God wishes for us. One that is peaceful…one that is prosperous…and one that is so filled with unconditional hope and love that we can’t help, but wake up everyday feeling joyous. Men who are empowered to be leaders can have an incredible impact on the women, children and families that surround them. This is the dream of the host Dino Katsiametis as well as the many people who support and contribute every week to the continuing education we receive at God’s Men of Influence.
