Rick “The Snake” Groeschel, lead pastor of Saddlefront Life’s Dreamcenter Potential Gathering of Christ-Followers, is seen here preparing for tomorrow’s sermon “Maybe We’ve Misunderstood Satan All Along.”

Groeschel is also a leading missiologist for the GC/SBC’s Life-lost-way research team. “We know God’s dream for the world is that all of His creation live in peace,” Groeschel tells Internet News reporter Biff Barf.
