by Spencer Burke from The Hatchery


Each week on the HatcheryLA Podcast, we interview a world-class leader or thinker who resonates with the ethos of what’s happening at our church planting incubator in Redondo Beach. Our desire is that you would be encouraged and stretched by fresh ways of thinking about life and ministry.

In this episode, I had the opportunity to speak with Greg Russinger, the co-founder and national director of Laundry Love, a neighboring movement that partners with individuals, groups, and laundromats to care for the poor, vulnerable, and marginalized throughout the United States. We had an engaging conversation about how Laundry Love got started, why it’s flourishing around the United States, and the purpose of their first national gathering in May 2015. 

At the end of the podcast, I also share three things that the church can learn from the example of Laundry Love.
