Listen to our podcast

Legendary performer Pat Boone has deep roots in Churches of Churches of Christ — and a book and a new hit album.

And he proves that he still knows how to lead congregational singing!

Listen now, and hear more stories from our ever-growing archive of Christian Chronicle podcasts.
