A team went with me to Catalyst One Day Conference last week. We got to hear Andy Stanley and Craig Groeschel speak on leadership and momentum. These are two of my favorite church leaders and I believe that have much to say on leadership for the 21st Century. To all pastors out there, I recommend you visit their sites (Stanley – www.northpoint.org / Groeschel – LifeChurch.tv) and learn from them.
The good news is that we didn’t come away from the conference with a lot of new information, but rather confirmation that we are on the right track. That is the most exciting thing for me. I continue to be amazed at the growth we have each week. We are going to 2 services in 2 weeks and it could be sooner.
I have always thought church should be this exciting. There is a buzz in the air every weekend. I have never experienced this in all my years of growing up in church. And my greatest fear is that it will stop! My prayer to God this morning was that this roller coaster we are on will never stop!
