Activist Faith

francis-chan.jpgHaving trouble getting away? Probably not as much as Francis Chan. Despite leaving the country with his family for some time in Asia, his books and DVDs continue to place his efforts in the national spotlight.

“I think there has been too much emphasis on me. I want to be used by
God, but I think we have this desire to make heroes out of people rather
than following God and the Holy Spirit.”
-Francis Chan
