I remember the first time I heard Louie Giglio speak. It was at One Day 2003, a Passion event on a huge farm in Sherman, TX. I didn’t know at the time that he was the driving force behind the Passion movement. I didn’t know much about Passion at all, but that didn’t matter. When he spoke at one of the first sessions, I was blown away. I remember sitting there thinking, “This guy’s got it.” Whatever “it” is as a speaker, he has it.
This week’s Preaching Donkey Spotlight features David Whiting, pastor of Northridge Church in Rochester, NY. I discovered him a couple years ago when I was searching for more pastors to learn from. I was drawn to his straightforward, clear communication style. His messages are thorough, well-prepared, and intentional.
