Podcast Highlights:

  • “We are doubling down on our need for prayer and biblical preaching. We see that as a necessity in the days that we’re living in, more than ever.” (4:55)
  • “If we’re going to be a family of churches, we have to build a family of churches.” (6:16)
  • “Church planting is hard. Sending your best is hard. I don’t know if the church in Antioch ever recovered to the point where they had such great leaders like Paul and Barnabas after they sent them out. But it didn’t matter because they were a part of the first global mission … and that’s their legacy.  (12:46)
