Enjoy it, share it, but most of all, thank you for listening and choosing the Truth Podcast Network. Ladies and gentlemen, the following contest is set for one flaw. Introducing first from Lithuania, he weighs 123 kilos, the Russian nightmare, Nikita Kolov. Welcome to another episode of Q&A with Kolov, the Devil's Nightmare.

Right here in studio with me today from Village Chapel all the way from Kannapolis, North Carolina, Pastor Ken, welcome to the Q&A with Kolov. Well, thank you for having me. Well, it's great to have you here and I guess I could officially say a fellow northerner, right?

Well, that's right. I hear you're from Minnesota. I am, Siberia, Minnesota. I think it's a lot colder than Syracuse. You think it's colder in Syracuse than Minnesota?

I don't know. I mean, you have more cold, but we have more snow, I think. Nine feet average for the October to May. Still presently, nine foot average.

Average, nine to 10 feet. Can you believe that? I feel like as a kid growing up, we had that in overnight camp. We probably did. Maybe you got me beat on the snow. Or are you snowing me here? What's going on? Or maybe a little of both here. Maybe a little of both here.

That's probably it, yeah. But I do remember, for real, I do remember and I vividly remember, within a 24 or 36 hour period, we would have two foot, sometimes 30 inches of snow and one snowfall. So we were probably pretty competitive with you. And it was cold, dude. It was like with the wind chill in Minnesota. Man, there were some minus 30, 40, below zero days. Does it get that cold in Syracuse? Only once in a while.

That's a rare moment. Okay, so maybe more snow for you, more cold. And I went to school, Moorhead, Minnesota, right up on the Fargo-North Dakota border. And those Canadian winds in the winter time would fly across the countryside there. Because anyone, if you've never been to North Dakota, it's not real hilly. I mean, so those winds just whip down.

And whoo, you want to talk about some cold days going to class in Moorhead State University. That is in America. I mean, is that... It is. It's right up near the Russian border. That's right.

Yeah. Actually, people ask me all the time, and I know, Ken, you weren't an avid wrestling fan or follower, but my first partner, Ivan Kolov, the Russian bear. And they're like, was he really from Russia? And I'm like, well, he was closer than I was, Vancouver, Canada. Yeah, that's right. Much closer to Russia than the Russian nightmare. So Syracuse, New York, so born bred, born and raised in New York. That's right, that's right. Spent most of your life there till you finally saw the light and came to the wonderful South.

That's right, to North Carolina. We've thought about it, my wife and I have thought about it for many years. We've been married 40 years, and we said, you know what, if we get to that point where we go, maybe there's a retirement in the picture, let's do it in the South, where it's nicer and warmer. See, you just showed a real sign of wisdom right there, Ken.

Yes. I'm thinking, well, my mom, rest her soul, she lived to be 93, and I can't tell you how many times I go up to visit her and she complained about the snow or the cold. I'm like, well, you know, mom, you have the liberty to move. What am I gonna move to?

I go, well, North Carolina's a pretty nice state. Your son happens to live there. That's right. But she did her whole entire life. She would complain about it. And I'm like, well, mom, you choose to live here.

So you have no room to complain about how cold or how much snow there is. That's right. So I know it was your grandchildren, as I've gotten to know you and some of your story, it's your grandchildren that was part of the biggest inspiration, you moving from North to South, yeah? That's right, yeah.

We have four children and five grandchildren now, and when they started to gravitate toward North Carolina, in fact, this area near Kannapolis, we said it's time, and that was in 2020, at the real height of 2020 pandemic, we said it's time to move, and we stepped out in faith and took that plunge into sense. And 40 years of, congratulations, by the way, 40 years of marriage. That's a milestone. My wife's a saint, so that helps. There you go, the saint and the sinner. That's it, you nailed it. What's her name? Lisa. Lisa, you're right. She's actually a Southern belle, she's from Virginia, but you know. Okay, okay, okay. So meet in college? No, she's from the DC area, so maybe people don't think of that as South, but it is below the Mason-Dixon line.

Technically. Yeah, after she became a Christian, and she moved to our area to live with her sister, and then started attending the same church I did. So we met in a Bible study there. Wow, okay. Yep, college career Bible study.

Wow, very cool, okay. And all these years, here you are all these years later, so that's amazing. And I know you came to the South to quote, unquote, retire from ministry. People have to go and listen to the man up there. I did an interview with you and Pastor Jeff James, and gave the full story about how you thought you were going to retire, but God had a different plan.

Yeah, that's right. The last church ministry, we planted a church, and then we merged with another church, and that was about a four-year process, that merger. It actually moved me to write a book about it, The Miracle Merger, and I think after all of that, I was kind of ready for a break, and God gave me that three months off. And then the first church we attended, they... To visit, like, hey, we need a home church where we can go be fed. Yes, and minister, and not be the lead, you know?

Right. That was in Kannapolis, and God opened the door, and that's where... Village Chapel. Village Chapel.

Let us together. What's your website? And you have a book. I think I knew that, but maybe for... At least I'm drawing a blank right now, but... The Miracle Merger. The Miracle Merger. It's the story how two totally different churches combine to live to tell about it.

That's the subtitle. Can people find Amazon? Amazon, yes. Okay. The Miracle... Say it again? The Miracle Merger. The Miracle Merger.

Yes, and you can find it on Amazon. You're listening to the Truth Network and The truthnetwork app today. So, if you're needing to merge a church...
