“When we look at the church of America today, it’s a sad reality that we’re measuring these things, because Jesus didn’t die for any of those. He died to see lives changed.” — George Barna - Barna Research Group
“I ended up doing that, giving my life up to the Lord on the front porch. That was the altar for me, you know what I’m saying? It was real...I wouldn’t have accepted the gospel, I can’t honestly say, unless God had brought it to me as raw as He did, right there on that porch. It wasn’t in a church. I didn’t get saved in a church.” — Sevin Duce - Hogmob Artist
"I don't actually have words for how moving that was, the invitation and the challenge in it were brilliant. It was so well done, I love it!" — Lorna James
