Cal Jernigan – Senior Pastor “Are you deaf? Can you not hear that?” Personally, I don’t hear well, but I couldn’t miss hearing this. You wouldn’t miss it. Nobody could miss it. Let me explain. This week I spent time with some leaders from Central in Washington, DC. We were attending an event designed to impact our global priorities and processes. It was a great event.
