HCR107: Interview with David Clubb


In this 107th podcast of Healthy Church Radio, I interview my friend David Clubb. I met David on the campus of what was then Elon College in the early 1990’s, had the privilege of teaching him public speaking, worshiping with him on the campus at what we called Elon Celebration, and officiating the ceremony when he married Shannon on June 30, 1995.

David and I talk about his position at Virginia Tech, overseeing the international student center, how he got involved in working with internationals, his family of 7, and his passion for reading good books from John Piper and others.
