Francis Chan is stepping out in faith…

Last Tuesday I had the honor of interviewing Francis Chan at Cornerstone Church in Simi Valley, CA.  I was asked to wait to post this video until today because of the sensitive nature of what Francis shared...

After 16 years of serving as senior pastor for Cornerstone Church Francis is sensing the Lord leading him in a different direction.  Despite not having complete clarity on what this means or exactly what is next Francis is stepping out in faith, something he has done for so much of his life.  He announced this decision to the church yesterday no doubt solidifying the start of a huge transition for both the Chan family AND the Cornerstone Church family.  The beauty of this announcement is that it comes in unified peace and hopeful harmony. 

When I asked Francis, "what's going on with you right now, what are you learning," I had no idea that he would share all of this...needless to say the remaining questions I had prepared were thrown out the window as Francis spoke from his heart and offered a vulnerable glimpse into his own personal journey...

"I would be a hypocrite if I didn't go..."

Francis Chan - "A Different Direction"

Francis Chan - "Fun Five"
On a lighter note, I asked Francis five fun questions from our twitter audience...

Why do I fear following in faith?  What risk is too great if the voice of the Lord is leading? 

Francis, thank you for your tangible example of trust and surrender...
