"One is confession. There is no repentance without confession. I think there needs to be a particular emphasis on the reality that the Church is as segregated as it has always been," said the 28-year-old native of St. Petersburg, Florida, just before he took the stage before 37,000 people at SoCal Harvest in Angel Stadium on Saturday. more >>

"Without the vision of them, and the implementation of them, there would be a different spiritual environment. I'm so thankful for Greg and his commitment to the Gospel and his commitment to keeping it simple, preaching Jesus to the lost," he continued. more >>
