You will love the stories he shares along with his heart for unity in the body of Christ. Listen in to discover how we can come alongside these everyday heroes who are sharing Jesus and making eternal investments in the lives of our students.
“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” John 17:20-23
