"Sinning on Sunday - A Pastor's Downfall: The Cost of Sexual Sin, Pride & Dishonesty" w/Daniel Kitchel

In his mid-twenties, Daniel Kitchel found himself in his first full-time church leadership role. Things went well for a short time and then quickly spiraled out of control.

On the surface, everything appeared to be right. The church grew quickly. People were baptized, and the Gospel was preached. But, underneath, Daniel's personal life was not matching what was going on publicly.

It would only be a matter of time before everything collapsed.

This is a story of loss, lies, pain, and suffering. It is also a story of God's love and incredible redemption.
