This week we talk to author and pastor Steven Furtick. He leads Elevation Church in Charlotte (one of the fastest growing churches in the U.S.) and recently released the New York Times bestseller Greater: Dream Bigger. Start Smaller. Ignite God's Vision for Your Life. Also, the podcast crew breaks down the epic Nicolas Cage / Left Behind news, Calvin sings with the whales and Jesse plots his Halloween costume (hint: it involves a mall kiosk).
