Ryan and Zach were honored to speak with John Stumbo, President of The Christian & Missionary Alliance. During this discussion, John talks about his 4 verbs for the Alliance: love, proclaim, reach, launch, and how those bleed into youth ministry and the church. We also talk about the need students have to communicate the gospel well. Sit back and listen to President Stumbo's heart and enthusiasm for The Alliance and the body of Christ.
