1. DJ and his wife used to be on staff with Cru at the U of A and have gone to California to plant a church. I appreciate his thoughts on Rachel Held Evans’ viral millennials leaving the church post among THE MANY that came about in both positive and negative response to her thoughts – and he uses one of my favorite parts of scripture when it comes to how I approach ministry myself (1 Corinthians 9)
