My Top 20 Quotes from the Leadership Summit

[L]ast week Central hosted the Leadership Summit again. It is a great conference with a variety of speakers that challenges your faith, your leadership, and your thinking in general. I’ve now had a few days to process through the fire-hose of content and I wanted to share the top 20 quotes that most stood out to me.
