Don Duncan was born and raised just East of Los Angeles California. Growing up in the 50’s and 60’s he went from Howdy Doody to Haight Ashbury. He accepted the Lord in Sunday school at age 11 but by 14 he had caught a bad case of “terminal cool”.
By 1967 he had left home and gone to San Francisco for the “Summer of Love”. Don married and had a son in 1970 and a daughter in 1973. A life of drugs and alcohol sent him “up the river” where he had time to think and returned to his first love, Jesus Christ.With his training in Air Conditioning and Refrigeration he went on to open his own business called Faith Refrigeration in 1976, which blossomed both physically and financially.
In 1979, sensing the call to ministry; Don left the business to work full time for Calvary Chapel in West Covina, California. Within a year he and his wife accepted the call to move their family (4 children) to Wichita, Kansas to pioneer a new church.
Ordained in 1980, and with no formal training other than Calvary Chapel, the church in Wichita was a success. Beginning in 1981 every sermon or bible study was recorded. Literally thousands of recorded messages have been given away all over the world. A daily radio program was produced called “Teaching for Today” which was aired in South Central Kansas for over 20 years. The downloadable bible studies on this website are from Don’s original recorded messages.
In 1984 a K-12 Christian school was founded. Hundreds of students have attended and gone on to receive honors and scholarships because of the foundation that was instilled in them.
In 2008 Don was lead to start a Bible study in Wichita. It has since blossomed into a new church – Calvary Chapel Fellowship.
Don is currently the Senior Pastor and along with feeding the body here, he makes himself available for retreats, seminars, or special services.
Don & his wife of 46 years, Susan, have 4 adult children, 13 grandchildren (5 live with them), and they currently reside in Andover, Kansas.
