061. An Interview With Junnie Pagunsan: Loving and Investing in People
Apr 25, 2024
Tom Griffith

In this episode, Coach Tom interviews a new friend (i.e. from pickleball, of course :)) and faith comrade, Junnie Pagunsan.

You will hear about Junnie's faith journey, challenges encountered in immigrating to the U.S.  from the Phillipines, and key values that have steered him in life.

Some  of these values are:

  • Invest in people over programs
  • Engage in dialogue over religious monologue
  • People are people, not projects
  • Meet needs...one person at a time...in the moment they arise
  • Prioritize your own spiritual and mental well-being.
