Diana WinklerChristianity, Episodes, Physical Violence Leave a Comment

When should you leave your church? Perhaps we should be asking God, “Should I stay?” instead. This is the second half of my riveting interview with Pastor Al Desheneau. We hear his story of being a young, green pastor, and pastoring churches filled with stubborn, legalistic people who didn’t want to change or be pastored. Pastor Al candidly shares the joys, the trials, the exhaustion, and spiritual abuse that he and his family endured. Hear about the crazy circumstances leading up to his departure from the churches, and how God wonderfully provided for their needs after the exit. Find out about the new exciting ministry that Pastor Al started in the gaming industry! You don’t want to miss part two with Pastor Al!

“Follower of Jesus, Husband, Father, Preacher, Teacher, Writer, Podcaster, 3D Printer, Dice Maker, Photo-nut, Music-lover, Avid-experimenter, Creative-mess-maker, Tech & Social Media Nerd” 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.
