Last Thursday, pastor Max Lucado shared his extraordinary plan to outlive his life with pastors all across the U.S. over a conference call.  Expressing that one of his personal goals is to see 25,000 children living in poverty sponsored, he invited the pastors and their congregation to help him by attending the "Make A Difference Tour."  Max will be joined on the nationwide 20-city tour by Toby Mac, Third Day and Michael W.
