Pastor Tony Evans delivered a powerful message to us men on the Mall, October 4th, 1997 in Washington D.C. The event was Promise Keepers’ “Stand in the Gap”. He spoke of how a “messed up man will produce a messed up family that will produce a messed up church that will result with a messed up neighborhood that will cause a messed up city that will bring about a messed up county that will result in a messed up state that will reside in a messed up country that will bring about a messed up world!

Pete was not impressed. Even as a young boy, an altar boy, he witnessed lay leaders doing church.
