What sets my heart on fire is helping people to become everything God has created them to be. I believe the only item left on God's To-Do list is for the gospel to be taken to the ends of the earth. Jesus will, then, come to take us home.
God has given me four words for the last days - let go, rest, empower and saunter. When the Body of Christ begins to live in the reality of these words, the church will become what Christ meant it to be. It is through His people, not professional pastors, that God is completing His mission on earth.
