Met the Mad Babbler

Since I am in Columbia, SC at the CIU missions conference this week, I thought I would take the opportunity to go meet Gary Lamb while I was in the neighborhood (only 8hr round trip). I love this guy. He has such a heart for the lost and he is reaching a lot of them through Ridge Stone Church. He is real and genuine and a bit raw. He says it like he thinks it. He came to Christ from a wild life chasing a girl to church and has never looked back. His background has given him an incredible ability to connect the lost in his community to new life in Christ.

His top piece of advice was to be yourself. It sounds easy but I know that it is a big problem in the church. It is interesting how churches that are really reaching people have pastors that people refer to as real and genuine.
