“Your job, and mine, is to help our people catch the fire – to do our part to instill in them a burning desire to be involved in God’s work.
Only when we refuse to do it all ourselves, inspire passion for serving in our people, and mobilize them to serve God through serving his kingdom, will our churches truly be able to move toward the imperative of the Great Commission.”
