Quotes from Dave:
“The number one thing [millennials] are looking for is permission.”
“It’s not just about growing something, it’s also about multiplying. That’s movement making stuff which accomplishes the mission.”
“We feel like there’s a global Body of Christ that needs to be connected, and we’d like to be one of the early adopters of how do we become a global body that becomes connected, and then share that with other people as well."
