Notable Points:

“If they are breathing, they need the Gospel”

“The best kind of evangelism is the one you do”

The first month of the Fall is do or die time – it’s all about recruiting and getting people in.

“You get what you celebrate. If you want to see people come to Christ that should be the primary thing you celebrate.”
