Important Quotes:

“Leadership is influence. I think it’s your ability to take people somewhere that maybe they don’t think they can go.”

“We look at spirituality as this quick fix and this crutch to get us away from reality when ultimately in the Church, at least in my point of view, the goal of faith is to deal and make it through reality.”

“Championship leadership is being able to go the whole distance.”

“Unfortunately, people give up on faith because they’ve had leaders that are just in and out of their lives rather than people that are accessible.”

“The point of a spiritual life is for your real life.”

“I try to just lead through vulnerability more than knowledge.”

 “I try to show people that following Jesus is never about perfection. It’s about progress.”

“It’s not about performance. It’s all about posture. It’s really about how do we posture ourselves towards who he is, rather than how do we perform for him, and make sure we know everything.”

“Too often we’re looking for these quick, fixed answers when sometimes we just need a new perspective towards the thing that has always been true.”

 “Before you make any major decision, you have to have the right understanding of who you are and strengths and weaknesses where you need to be stretched, and where you kind of need to just surrender.”

“Discovery phase of leadership is just as important as knowing the destination you’re taking people.”

“Make the vision plain enough that you can share it. Write it down so you can revisit it.”
