Chef GW Chew, founder of the The Veg Hub, a vegan restaurant ministry in Oakland California shares the secrets of how to create a Center of Influence in an urban context. He presents something amazing that God has been doing in Oakland. Something that is not a new concept and that was written long ago. Chef Chew shares his journey from a hard-core, southern country boy, meat-eater to a vegan chef and lay pastor. He shows how this ministry model is most effective when used for church planting. He also emphasizes that a center of influence in the cities is a point of contact to develop relationships within the community and to make friends, and he challenges pastors and conference leaders to think outside the box, take a risk, and invest in centers of influence as a way to reach people to Christ.
