Pastor Danny Anderson of Emmanuel Church in Indiana talks about taking the lead role at a mega church at age 28, a crazy season of leadership, and how he worked to reshape the church toward reaching the unchurched. After over 60% of the church left (yup, you read that right) God began to free up the church to gain momentum in reaching the lost in Indianapolis.
