In this episode, Andrew sits down with Bill Woolsey, Founder and President of FiveTwo Network. They discussed the qualities of a good founder, mistakes that founders typically make and what it means to be a sacred starter. If you have started or are thinking about launching a new ministry or company, you definitely want to check this out.
Bill has been a pastor since 1987, and he and his wife currently call the Land of Uplift in the Texas hill country home. He was always the evangelism guy and realized that the older the community, the older the members, the harder it is to break in and plant a new church.
In 2009, he founded FiveTwo Network to support church planters and entrepreneurs of the church.
In 2015, he left his pastoral placements and went full-time with FiveTwo.
FiveTwo was named for the story of Jesus feeding the five hundred when a single young man gave what he had to further the mission of Christ. And that everybody who starts something has two questions, where is the money going to come from and where are the people going to come from. And when you look at the story, the food came from the people to feed the people.

You're going to hit financial sustainability and more people are going to be introduced to Jesus, these are the main things to be a Sacred Starter.
FiveTwo takes a client through an assessment, testing and driving down to core values to help you be successful and to be a Sacred Starter.

"In a conference, what I'm really looking for is the practical TOOLS on how to do your job well and the MOTIVATION to go out and be ready to get back to work. I've gotten both of those things from Petrus. I'm really excited to get back home and HUSTLE and put my all into it."
