Highlights from the NLC

What an incredible experience at the NewSpring Leadership Conference! In one day we got to hear from 6 of the best in Christian Leadership.

The messages were inspiring and challenging. I wanted to post just a few of my favorite thoughts from the 2012 NLC.

I think the reason people are running from the church is because we are arguing over things that don't matter... When we do this, we miss out on the hurting people Jesus brings to the church doorsteps. - Perry Noble (inspired by Mark 9:17-18)

At the cross, the ground is level. No one stands below us and not one of us stands above the other.

3500 Americans are leaving the church everyday
James MacDonald

Our problem (with decline in churches) is not a "how" problem but a "who" problem. - James MacDonald

Good sermons and great worship does not move mountains- God does. -James MacDonald

No culture, community, or government will outlast Christ and his Bride (the church). Every new culture is simply another opportunity for the Church to thrive.

The foundation of our faith is the Bible, certain scriptures or religious practices... it is an event- the resurrection. - Andy Stanley

Sometimes the difference between where you are and where God wants you to be is the pain you are unwilling to endure. - Craig Groeschel

Becoming obsessed with what others think about you is the quickest way to forget what God thinks about you. - Craig Groeschel

The more we focus on the change, the less we change. The more we focus on the Changer/Creator the more we will see change. - Judah Smith

God will break you privately so He can use you publicly- Craig Groeschel

Even the "house on the rock" faced the same storm as the "house on the sand". Building our house on the "rock" will not necessarily keep us from the storms but will ultimately help change our outcome. (Matthew 7)

When we fall in love with Jesus, we fall in love with people. Perry Noble

If we spend more time telling people what they should turn to rather than what they should turn from, we will see more change. - Judah Smith

Satan has power but on a leash... - Matt Chandler

Sin will preach you a sermon if you stop and listen- and there will be an alter call. - Judah Smith

We are responsible for where we are spiritually... You lead yourself. - Jud Wilhite

God is the only Father in the Universe who encourages his kids to keep pestering him - Matt Chandler :)

God does not ever change. Therefore He is the greatest agent of change.- Judah Smith
