This week on the Crown Stewardship Podcast, we welcome John Clemens. John has been in the radio industry for over 50 years, which is how he and Chuck originally met and became friends. John tells Chuck why he became involved in the Christian radio industry and how he views his work as service to the Lord. John also opens up and tells us about his pancreatic cancer, but how he still wakes up each day with joy to serve God. This episode is sure to encourage you as you listen to two close friends share learned life-lessons and eternal truths. This podcast that begins with talking about radio and baseball, will end with you reaching for the tissues. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
