Stories from the Toolshed is a podcast companion to Novo's Spiritual Authority Cohorts. Each month, Stephen and Tim will encourage you to experiment with your new prayer tools from your spiritual authority toolbox, connect you to our larger cohort audience, and invite you to hear the stories and testimonies of disciples of Jesus from all across the United States as we explore questions like "What does it look like to step into my spiritual authority?" and "How can I partner with God among my family, friends, and the world?" We want to hear your stories! Send them to email@example.com. Stephen Castellow is a Novo cohort presenter. Tim Shuck is a cohort graduate.

For the Sake of the City (Bonus Testimony)
43:00Dave Larlee, a Dallas cohort graduate, shares his story of how blessing prayer moves into the city. We recorded this testimony at the beginning of the cohorts and we are excited to share it with you all! It’s a modern-day story of how God miraculously multiplies ‘loaves and fish’ today. His comical testimony will remind us again of how God loves our cities and how simple obedience attracts Heaven’s attention.
Reclaiming Territory Through Prayer Walking
54:02As priests, we’ve been commissioned into our cities to reclaim territory for the Kingdom. These prayer walking practitioners will tell you their stories of how they’ve done this in their local neighborhood and in the nations. They will tell stories about “prayer running,” seeing breakthrough in their communities, and even seeing miraculous things happen in unreached people groups. Join us in this next podcast of Stories from the Toolshed.
Priestly Prayer, pt 2
27:08After their practical stories, we wanted to ask our facilitators some common questions about priestly prayer. We hope these questions and answers help you step deeper into your role as a royal priest.
Priestly Prayer, pt 1
23:15Keith Uebele, Kelsey Phillips, and Jonne Rasmussen invite us into a practical conversation about priestly prayer. They each share their priestly prayer stories from the last week of their lives.
Physical Healing (Bonus Episode)
28:16For our bonus episode, we asked our cohort graduates to send us current testimonies of physical healing in their neighborhoods. These humble and powerful stories will encourage you to take steps of faith in praying for healing. Let’s celebrate what God is doing in the cohorts around the world and ask Him for more!
40:38Physical healing can be one prayer tool that many Christians are afraid of. We fear “what if nothing happens?” and “should we have faith for healing today?” Tim and Stephen have a conversation around real testimonies of healing in our daily lives, within our families, and they will inspire us to pray with faith spelled R-I-S-K. Join us in this conversation!
37:22This month, Stephen and Tim interview two of our presenters exploring practical applications for inner healing as well as personal testimonies of victory and deliverance through the power of prayer and the ever-present love of Jesus.
Hearing from God
42:09This episode records the stories of 4 of our cohort graduates from around the country that have made it a practice to hear God’s voice. From west coast to east coast, you will hear stories of men and women in their daily lives that have asked God to speak personally to them and for others. Can God speak during a hunting trip? During a life coaching session? What does God think about my identity? Do I see myself the way He sees me? Does God care about marshmallows? If you’re interested, tune in to hear our cohort graduates share practical stories that will encourage and empower you to take more steps forward in hearing God's voice.
