Ever wondered how a pastor’s kid from Trinidad and Tobago ended up ministering love in the American marketplace? Join me as I sit down with Gary Kahn as he takes us through his unique faith walk. Gary’s life story is inspiring: from a restless pastor’s kid exploring his understanding of God to hearing God’s call and moving toward ministry. His 32 years of ministry have seen their fair share of crises and questioning, but through it all, Gary found his way back to the unshakeable foundations of his faith.
And it doesn’t end at the pulpit. Gary navigated the transition from traditional pastoral work into chaplaincy, bringing Christ’s love into the workplace. He uncovers the process of building relationships with people who may not necessarily step foot in a church and shares how these connections create a platform to exhibit the love of Christ in real life ways. Gary also shares about his latest book, “That Didn’t Go the Way I Thought,” where he provides a refreshing take on faith and life’s surprising twists. Listen in to this week’s Simple Faith.
