    Are you ready to receive 3000 people today? 1000?500? 5? 1? What do we need to do to prepare to receive those that God has placed just outside our doors?

    Tell the person next to you, “It’s no coincidence… that you are here.” “God brought you here!” We need to understand that the only reason people talk about God, or come to church, is because God draws them. That is why we need to be prepared. Bob called his wife from work in the middle of the ...read more
