This Man is Legit| Posted January 27, 2011
I have had the privilege of seeing Francis speak at a couple different Catalyst Events, hearing several of his messages via the Cornerstone Podcast, and have read Crazy Love - This guy is definitely legit.
He's currently out of the country, on semi-indefinite hiatus from Cornerstone in response to what he called an "80% sure feeling" that GOD was leading him this way - haha! He's honest, real, and truly strives to follow hard after and fall madly in love with Yeshua.
