I'm second is and movement to.
Try and inspire people to considered the question.
What would life look like if we put the people around us our family or friends the people we don't know.
What if what would look like we put them first event ahead of ourselves what -- what would it look like if we thought of what god wants before we thought of what we want it.
And we where do we share the stories of people who've made that decision.
Hopefully try inspire others to make that decision.
-- so so who's really behind it right now.
Well it's it's instead it's longer of people that we were putting together we we have a website and we have some videos about eighty of them on our website in -- book out as well but it's just had a group of us started called -- second that.
Where -- -- -- they're trying to share the stories of -- what it looks like pathologies and this way.
Since this window.
What churches that I mean is is this is involved two versions at all or -- and archaeology or how do people actually create this.
Movement based in the -- small groups so what.
Yeah yeah I will open a lot of per churches a lot of nonprofit organizations lot of -- ministries campus finishing second I think they basically anybody you.
-- who feels the same kind of way we do about this message about this.
But this movement and -- -- we do a lot of it through your small groups on -- -- now on our website we got all these small -- heroes that we -- by train people who do.
-- a lot of it goes through the smallest.
Churches organizations of different kinds about a lot of leaving -- -- -- her website.
You want something like this needed and cool responds more to something like -- -- second.
Then let's say again going to church or.
Yeah getting on a website and some other kind of an event listing kind of the movement.
Yeah I think there's a lot of people in in our culture in our country and around the world.
That are very interested in Jesus.
-- not quite sure what they think about the church are not quite sure what they think about organized religion.
And we're trying to -- -- some of those barriers away and just let people interact with the story -- would -- what god is doing this world today now.
It's so so we think that there's a lot of people out there that.
Are in that position that they their interest in Jesus but kind of if the current forms are available for the -- Jesus.
Hasn't appealed to them whether that be church her or whatever so we're trying to make equipped believers in.
-- -- -- that.
You an interest of full disclosure I have to say that I was at at presentation in New York.
About claims second wanting to come into new York and one would be.
Our objective -- objections but one of the questions raised his you know.
I'm not quite sure how well it's gonna work in New York -- people come to New York got to be number -- at number two -- -- -- to be -- more I don't know.
And it just doesn't fit in with their whole you know world new liberal philosophy.
Who do you find that that's the way in big cities like New York or or or in Los Angeles or Chicago but particularly in places -- people come to be.
Number one to be the best.

I don't think it's just a New York thing I think it's an American thing that we.
As a people we we value that go get -- kind of attitude that I'm personally know conquer the world I'm gonna go do this.
And that's part of the reason why we named that our organization what we did it's too.
BA and it's a very bold statement to say I am second and that's I think part of the intrigue -- that yeah it's it strikes at one of our core values as a people as a nation.
I'm I think that's actually part of the appeal -- not because it's so shocking.
You -- they don't seems as though it lends itself better to celebrity endorsement because of that I mean do you find.
But the celebrity.
Testimonials have much more impact.
I'm in a way -- I think that the celebrity endorsements are kind of the in the entry way for a lot of people because they see.
They see of Brian while -- they see -- Josh Hamlet can these people -- and in their industry their first they are they're huge.
And when they come on say I -- second -- is incredibly provocative.
And Syria and now we've got a lot of other film does well with from not so famous people I think they're more issues related and so.
They dig deep concern issue that people may respond to but yeah I think that.
The celebrities you kind of help -- shock value statement that we have.
