In 2014, the leader of a Northern California megachurch lived on the streets of Sacramento for two weeks to raise money for a homeless program. It changed his life forever. Now, in the tail-spinning latter half of a global pandemic, Rev. Rick Cole of Capital Christian Center recounts the humbling experience and opens up about his own growth and his hopes for the Church. Touching on everything from homelessness, to race relations, to embracing a broken community, Cole is always self-aware, straight-forward, and unambiguous. He may at times be stating the obvious, but he also knows that too many of us, especially now, need to hear it.
