Growing Spiritually

When someone asks you why you have hope, do you have an answer? As believers, our hope is in both walking through life with Christ at our side, and envisioning a future with Him. Ed Stetzer talks with Wheaton College's Dr. Laura Barwegen about how to disciple believers and work through that answer of where our hope lies.
