John Gundacker is the senior/lead pastor of Calvary Chapel in Pahrump, NV, and has been for 20 years.
Pahrump is a little more than an hour from Las Vegas, obviously a huge city. The church John was trained in was in Las Vegas. So when his family moved to tiny Pahrump to start a church, expectations had to change. In the process, John has learned contentment, which is a huge key in any ministry.
As we’ll see in this podcast episode, contentment produces its own kind of fruit … makes it easier to wait for the Lord, it provides peace and focus upon the right things.
Listen in as John tells part of his and his church’s story.
