In the Phil Frasier episode (#53), Phil mentioned a local hellion in his youth group that came to Christ, John Gilberts. Upon hearing this faith story, Steve KNEW he needed to get John's full story! It's worth the listen!

Hear about:

  • How John's dad tried to kill him and his mother
  • The struggles of growing up without a father in a tiny rural Wisconsin town
  • How persistent love by a group of teens helped open him up to the Gospel
  • How he met his wife and the trials of enduring seven miscarriages
  • How he worked his way up from an entry-level job in the mailroom to his current position at Greater Europe Mission
  • How becoming the "Priest in the Pub" in Germany shaped how he approached doing ministry
  • and much more
