A couple of weeks ago, I invited my good friend and colleague in ministry, Curtis Zackery, better known as CZ, to speak to my high school students at our weekly gathering called Anthem.
That's him in the above photo! CZ is a highly gifted speaker, hip hop artist, and pastor. Over the course of our short friendship together, he has sharpened me into a better husband, pastor, and thinker. We routinely swap resources and ideas. I value our friendship, and I am grateful for his witness in my life.
