During the Summit Bill Hybels had an incredible interview with Bishop T. D. Jakes who serves as the Founder and Pastor of The Potter’s House.
- We let people put a period by what they define us as, where I believe that God placed a
comma. It’s the trap of being stuck by a title.
- Find the common denominator-and then lead from the position of what do you have in common
- We are underutilized and frustrated by not being challenged.
- If every day’s challenge has become predictable, we have stopped growing.
- Haters are symptoms that we are on the right track.
- You need to appreciate the haters. They are not always wrong.
- Success is not changing the minds of the haters.
- If we are going to affect the world, we need to do it through stories they can relate to.
- We keep telling people to keep coming to our churches, and we have forgotten that we are
supposed to be going to where they are.
- You are no greater than the people you surround yourself with!
- Your dream should be bigger than you.
- We have asphyxiated our dreams because we have limited ourselves with a tribal perspective when we have a global God.
- There is always something I’m going to miss everyday. The art is to not miss the same thing twice.
- Anytime you take on new things it is going to take you time to learn how to manage it.
- My structure needs to be sufficient to the weight load I’m carrying.
- The big question is what am I willing to leave behind to get where God wants me to go?
- Systemic racism is about whether or not you have included them in the plans for success.
- We were created by a creator to be creative. We act more like God when we are creative!
