Francis challenged leaders to evaluate programs to determine if we are creating a safe retreat for people instead of unleashing them.

Francis explained how the person who has the best chance of reaching a lost person is the Christian who works with or lives right beside them. Our job as church leaders is not to be the main star, but to be the coach who diligently inspires and empowers people to make God known throughout the world.  
How are they/we doing at bringing people to Christ?
