Quotes from Brian:
“We had a passion to start more churches. It wasn’t about how large we were going get; it wasn’t about how many butts in seats. It was about how many people we were going give the opportunity to know and follow Jesus and we felt like planting more churches was the answer to that question.”
“The myth is that there is no balance. So if you’re always trying to spend equal parts of your time on everything then that’s not the best way to do it because some things are more important than others.”
