Before Chris McArdle, 28, founded Absolutely No Condemnation Ministries, he was facing death's door with terrifying trips to the hospital ER. Chris struggled with alcoholism which nearly killed him. Not long ago, his father who became saved and sober, passed away. Chris's consumption of alcohol progressed from recreational use to a dangerous "euphoric-like" escape. Soon alcohol became necessary for daily function in his successful sports radio career. Sober today, Chris is overjoyed by how Jesus Christ's love rescued and restored him from the deadly grip of alcoholism. Based in Anoka, Minnesota, Chris travels the country candidly and passionately telling others struggling with substance abuse: there is freedom from addiction and absolutely no condemnation in Christ Jesus. What was his turning point? Join us and invite others for a powerful conversation. Host: Nicole D. Hayes.
