  1. Chuck is definitely a true professional and dedicated Christian teacher and author. Articulate Chuck, (as I would prefer to call him) preaches with passion and integrity!
    Way to go Chuck at 86 years Young..Chuck is also very funny and appreciates a good laugh!!

  2. We LUV Church Swindoll and his “Insight for Living”; we are listening to him Mon-Fri on our Colorado Springs CO KTLF 90.5 FM Christian radio during his special lecture series on the book of Matthew. He is a dedicated compelling and lively speaker; we hope he preaches until he is at least 100 years old, God has truly been with Mr. Swindoll and his lovely wife all their married lives together!!!

  3. Chuck Swindoll, what a man of God! My wife and I started attending EV Free in Fullerton, Ca. in 1980
    because of you and your wonderful teaching. Today, we livestream your service every Sunday and so
    much enjoy your messages. You truly are a man of God and convey his words like no other. God bless
    you and keep you under his wings.

  4. I love the preaching and teaching of Chuck swindell but I wonder about how these preachers are getting so rich? Is it because of donations? Tony Evans is very rich in the millions as well. Do they support a lot of Christian causes with that money?

    • Well, I would hope we are all being responsible with saving our money for our older/mature years in our final season of life. According to today’s high cost of living standards, a lifetime of working diligently, would hopefully produce financial security for later years of health care/medical needs. If anyone has taken the Financial Peace University classes on financial savings, the ability to share a lifetime of hard work offers the ability to be generous with others in need. I really admire anyone working to make a difference in this world, using their talents, to bring people closer to God, and to have the hope that there is so much more than what this worlds – all at the age 87 plus years! Remarkable…..I could only hope to be making a difference in my elderly years….my high respects to Pastor Swindoll! I was married in his EV Free Church in Fullerton and will always remember my amazing growth as a teenager, in my faith with his early on teachings, and life groups. So grateful!!
