Beyond Us by Andy Stanley
This message helps us understand why Browns Bridge exists, direction for where we are headed, and what a crucial role you play. A message from Andy Stanley.
20 years ago there was a group of people who had a dream to create a church that unchurched people would love to attend. 10 years later they decided to look beyond themselves and invest in the next generation by building a new church in a new community. (October 2006)
