FRANCIS CHAN CONVICTED TO THE CALL FOR HIS LIFE

An author and preacher Francis Chan earned his seminary degree and started as a youth pastor in California. In 1994, he, his wife Lisa, and community of 30 others founded Cornerstone Community Church. Chan follows the convictions and answers the call over his life through each season. He has sacrificed many things for God, living his life in total obedience by donating his book royalties and giving up his salary to go towards different organizations. Chan even resigned from his congregation. He and his family lived in Hong Kong to serve others and expand their ministry. He encourages believers to have their own encounters with God and not to get caught up with the trends. Chan equally holds religious leaders accountable and hopes their congregations are having genuine encounters with God by directing people to God, not turn them away from God. With all that is going on in the world, there needs to be a revival and restoration in the sacredness of worship and the experience His presence. His solution is for Christians is to spend more time with Christ himself.

Chan is an author of many books, his first, Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God was a New York Times bestseller. His most recent book, Until Unity is about how the Church does not passionately pursue unity amongst religions, denominations and cultures. He challenges his readers and believers to align themselves with God and His desires, pursue unification and not division.
