I am getting some real encouragement and spiritual nourishment from watching Francis Chan’s messages. From his bio on his web page: “Francis is the pastor of Cornerstone Church in Simi Valley. He has been serving there for 14 years. He is also President of Eternity Bible College and serves on the Board of Children’s Hunger Fund and World Impact. Francis spends much of his time speaking to high school and college students. His commitment is to speak directly from the words of scripture. His passion is to see the next generation of American Christians display a much deeper love for Jesus.”
Francis is a bit of a radical, in the positive sense of the word. He speaks clearly and concisely and is not afraid to tackle tough topics, speaking truth. If you track his story, you will find that he is a risk taker. That probably is my favorite quality of his. I think that fearlessness is a vital characteristic of anyone who wants to bring change to the world.
I hope you have a few minutes to check out some of what he is saying. He also has a new book out, Crazy Love, that I hope to pick up in a few days.
Let me know what you think about him and what he is doing and saying …
