If you love the spotlight more than the secret place, you’re in trouble because it means you care more about pleasing people than pleasing God.” – Banning Liebscher
It’s quotes like this that make my conversation with Banning Liebscher so powerful. Banning is the founder & pastor of Jesus Culture. Jesus Culture began as a youth ministry at Bethel Church in Redding. 3 years ago Banning and his team moved to plant Jesus Culture Sacramento.
Banning is a visionary and a pastor at heart. We talk about his new book Rooted, the process of God, basketball, parenting, ministry, discipleship, and so much more.
