Last Week

November 9, 2009

So #leadershipweek is over and I think it went very well. I am grateful to everyone who participated; from readers to writers I thought every things went well. So thanks everyone for doing this with me!

Since I have not written anything myself in the past few days I thought I would give you some thoughts that are in my brain right now, who knows maybe I will write about them in the coming weeks.

 

  • Matt Chandler from the Village Church is the man. I have listened to two podcasts from him recently and all I can say is WOW! That man knows the word and is so passionate about it!
  • I want to be more passionate for God’s word.
  • I love my wife! She is the best and I would be so lost without her!
  • When you give people an inch, they normally take a mile… be ready for that.
  • No one ever likes the feeling of “they are not good enough.” If a church, pastor or Christ follower makes someone feel like that then there is a problem.
  • Having tough conversations is key to great leadership. Leaders that avoid tough conversations are poor leaders.
  • I went to Philly  2 weeks ago, I forgot to mention that it was awesome!
  • Very excited about two speaking opportunities coming up. The day before Thanksgiving I am speaking to everyone at our church. And at the beginning of Dec. I will be speaking to Christian athletes at Geneva College.
  • Your leadership only goes as far as your character will take it.
  • People want to follow genuine leaders, if your fake… people will follow you in a fake kind of way.
  • Moses and Jasper (my dogs) are getting along great. Jasper is already house trained… thinking about opening up a doggie training center.

    If you want good practice, I’ll bring over my four ill-mannered hounds. You may change your mind about dog training. *wink* hee hee
