Real Talk Podcast

I was asked to write why REAL TALK PODCAST is important for Fairfield California!

“It's time for a new thing, why should we follow a path-when we're called to make a Trail!”

First I will give you the Five Pillars that are important to me: why a podcast?

  1. I believe that it will build a podcast community that will provide a supportive environment for like-minded people.
  2. The podcast community provides space to learn and share our own knowledge with others and gain wisdom from each other, building a trust that what each other has to say is important.
  3. We can make great friends and collaborate together to build a better Fairfield just by putting our resources together.
  4. Belonging to a podcast Community can help you feel less alone. And our ministry is, “We are Never Alone, an Intervention & Prevention Program.
  5. A podcast Community unlocks fantastic Network opportunities. We must realize that our next generation is looking for foundational truth, not just words from our mouth.

That's why, when problems are brought up, we want to find a solution for them that is biblically sound, and not just a “he says-she says” approach. I believe that our creator has put purpose in each one of us and he knows what's best for his creation. So this Podcast will bring us the opportunity to come together, so we can achieve incredible things. To me the greatest threat to being all you could be, is satisfaction with who you are. Also what you can do is always endangered by what you have done.

Tragically, when I look out and see all the individuals who are buried with their talents, gifts and abilities in the cemetery of their last accomplishment. Many have settled for less than their best. I believe that the enemy of the best is good, and the strength of good is the norm. The power of the norm is the curse of our society. It seems like the world is designed to make the norm comfortable and the average respectable. I believe this is a tragedy that can be exposed by the truth! That I am somebody, and God has put a treasure inside of me that needs to be found!

So with this podcast, I pray that we will be able to help people find their purpose, ignite their passion and reach their potential of what the creator has put inside of them! This way, we build relationships! It's time for a new thing, why should we follow a path-when we're called to make a Trail! This is how we lead & leave our children with this generational health and wealth wisdom! 

Much love, Dre'4CHRIST, a resident in Fairfield for 63 years and CO-Founder of “We are Never Alone, an Intervention & Prevention Program established with my Bride Annette Davis.

February is National Black History Month

February marks Black History Month, a tradition that got its start in the Jim Crow era and was officially recognized in 1976 as part of the nation's bicentennial celebrations. It aims to honor the contributions that African Americans have made and to recognize their sacrifices.
Three simple ways to celebrate Black History Month and honor the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy:
Make a Commitment to Stand up to Hate!
Dr. King’s life was dedicated to the rights and dignity of all people. His courageous stand against bigotry was an inspiration to all of us. As hate and intolerance rise once again, honor the civil rights leader by making your own stand to stop hate. 

Learn something new (know then grow!)
“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education”.  Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Serve Your Community
Serving with the Matt Garcia Foundation is a perfect way to Honor Dr. King’s legacy!
