Diana WinklerChristianity, Physical Violence

Have you been bullied? Then you must know how it feels to be alone, rejected, and friendless. My guest today is Pastor Al Descheneau, who shares the story of his upbringing in a transient Christian home. As always the new kid in school, he was subjected to frequent bullying and abusive treatment from his school mates. By the time he went to Christian college, he was an angry, antisocial kid who wanted nothing to do with people. Then one day, he had lifechanging break through in his spiritual life which spilled over very quickly into a vibrant social life. Pastor Al talks candidly about his conversations with God, serving the Lord and his calling into pastoral ministry. We have some fun talking about Christian culture, how media choices affects your mood, and cut through the churchy fluff false doctrine. Come hear part one of my my interview with Pastor Al.

I grew up in a Christian home have known Jesus since I was six years old. After a time of teenage rebellion God led me to North American Bible College (Now Taylor College & Seminary) in Edmonton to “figure things out”. There, I rededicated my life to Jesus, met my wife, Anita, and was called him into full-time ministry. Since then I’ve been serving Jesus’ in all areas of church life — tech, sound, graphic design, photography, video editing, small group leader, writer, musician, and of course, preaching and teaching. Whatever it takes to share Jesus and teach scripture in a creative and inspiring way!

I’ve been married to Anita since ’97 and they have four children. Some of my other interests include 3D printing, dice making, writing, podcasting, photography, watching cartoons and movies with explosions.
