brandonhatmakerHGTV star Brandon Hatmaker brought the heat today at Catalyst in Atlanta, Georgia today, bringing a lot of truth that many churches may not want to hear or acknowledge. As a former missionary, I’m thankful that Brandon had the opportunity to remind church leaders that we are called to step outside the 4 walls of the church.

Here’s a few quotes from Brandon:

  • “We were so busy on our church campus that we didn’t know our neighbor.”
  • “Stepping out from the pews & out into the streets is what we need to be doing.”
  • “Church is what it does.”
  • “If we are to love our neighbor as ourselves, why not commit structurally to serve in the community?”
  • “People are not a project or an agenda.”
