Pastor Doug Rowland talks about one of his pet peeves when it comes to evangelism and how Paul's message to the Ephesians can help us find both clarity and urgency when it comes to spreading the gospel message. Listen to Pastor Doug's challenge that will encourage us to be bold in our witness for Jesus.
