Meet Desert Voices

Desert Voices is a podcast and digital faith platform founded by two former Young Life leaders, Shaleen Kendrick and Holland Fields, in Phoenix, Arizona. They engage and collaborate with diverse perspectives from fellow desert dwellers to curate and provide tools and guideposts along the spiritual journey. It is their mission to spark curiosity and boldly explore spirituality that contributes to human flourishing. 

How We Partner With Them

Jen met Shaleen as a grad student at Christian Theological Seminary and a partner within the W/ Collective. We came on as coaches right as they were about to launch their vision into the world. We’re steering them toward a growing network of voices and providing feedback on the crafting of their podcast. We’ve also helped them set up their finances and operations, edited some of their writings, and coached them through discerning their short and long term goals. In summer of 2021, DV expanded their team to include Matt Kendziera and Ryan Lambros, new partners they met through introductions from us.

How They Partner With Us

Desert Voices is a coaching partner with invaluable resources for others launching new communities, an excellent model of great podcast production, and they are passionate about networking with fellow leaders who sit in the in-between of conservative and progressive theology.

“Jen and Aaron helped us not feel alone and crazy as we launched Desert Voices. They helped ground us and gave us a sweet space to process and plan how to move forward with excellence and grace!”
