There aren't too many John Stanges around. They just don't exist. Now, John would say, "Well, that's a good thing, LOL!", but most who know him know that this world would be even MORE enhanced and blessed in just about every publishing, virtual-producing, podcasting and platform-creating outreach - if there WERE MORE just like him.
Host, Sue Duffield, recalls the first time meeting this young leader as far back as the Pocono Bible Camp days, remembering just how special John was and is to this day. What an entertaining, enjoyable, informative and connecting conversation this episode is.. Take notes.
