“I think American is hungry for the gospel. I think this is the perfect time right now to advance the kingdom of God using technology like never before.”
“If someone in this opportunity clicks a banner and fills out their information, we immediately mail them a Bible.”
“We call every single person that has made a commitment to follow Jesus Christ for the first three weeks and we will talk to them on the phone and give them encouragement.”
“Those that are really leaning into this technology and having zoom gatherings are having the depth of community and connection the most effectively.”
“We’ve got to be realistic and understanding that there will be an anxiety with physical gatherings.”
“This isn’t new for the church. The church was born out of hardship.”
“Do you have a phone? Does it have a camera? That is enough. Utilize Facebook.”
