In the spirit of NCS authenticity and transparency, Drew Williams shares openly and humbly about lessons learned during a difficult health trial that lasted for several years and required him to take extended medical leaves from his role as Senior Pastor of Trinity Church Greenwich. Drew explains how his “pit” experience brought him to face many personal failings–with the biggest being a “fear of man”. It was in the pit that he also realized God was right with him, never giving up. Drew also came to understand that fear of man can displace the person, power and presence of the love of Jesus in our lives, which can cause us to miss the fullness of what God has for us. Allowing God’s love to push fear aside opens us up to His adventure.
