#259: It’s Not Over: Why Your Best Days Are Ahead Of You with Josh Gagnon

By July 6, 2020Podcast

In this episode, you’ll hear Josh Gagnon, Founder and Lead Pastor of Next Level Church in New Hampshire, share about his latest book, “It’s Not Over”, and why your best days are ahead of you.


Joshua Gagnon is the founding and lead pastor of Next Level Church, regularly recognized as one of the fastest-growing churches in America. He is known for his uniquely authentic communication style that makes the hope found in Jesus relevant to people of every background. He and his wife, Jennifer, raise their two sons in New Hampshire.

In It’s Not Over, Pastor Joshua Gagnon’s recently released book, he reminds us that we were born to dream—and to dream big. In fact, our dreams have the power to shape our lives. Join Joshua in discovering the answers to these questions and many more… How does dreaming help you discover your purpose? How do you identify if a dream is even worth chasing? How do you overcome resistance, criticism, and doubt? How do you pray bold prayers when you don’t feel like praying at all? How do you finish strong on the journey toward your dream?
