”I dream of an Assemblies of God that will recapture the culture of church planting that made it a great tool in God’s hand, and I dream that we will plant new churches and replant failing churches in every community of our nation. For that reason I will advocate and push to use all of our resources to make church planting a primary focus at AGTS.”
