Quotes from the episode:

If I’m going to be trying to minister God’s word, if I’m really going to be trying to do what I believe God has called me to do and encourage people to live by faith, I’ve got to go where the people are at.
And it’s not so much about giving people that information just to kind of gain that knowledge, but I’m trying to really give them like an inspiration to have them actually do something.
When we look at the disciples, how many of them were untrained, uneducated, didn’t know anything. But they were willing to step out in faith and just trust what their savior was telling him.
