My second big thesis trip takes me to California at the end of April for three days. Accompanied by Jeremy Lee, an up-and-coming leader from the hub, I'm interviewing three churches in the LA area and then one church near Sacramento, each offering an impressive raise-up-leaders from within mentality. I'm excited to sit down with some of the leaders in these churches and soak up some experience and wisdom.
