Bill Agee, CSBC executive director is providing a monthly article to the California Southern Baptist called "Insight."

“Insight” implies apprehending the true nature of something and gaining an accurate and deep understanding of it.

He hopes to, on a regular basis, help readers of the California Southern Baptist gain a deep and better understanding of what is happening around our state among our churches.
