Top 20 Quotes from Q 2014

Top 20 Quotes from Q 2014

I went to the first two Q conferences eight years ago and haven’t been able to make it back since. My third one was long overdue and was another great experience. Q is a unique conference in that it targets the church and culture and looks for ways to bring them together.

Here are my twenty favorite quotes from the event (or at least my best effort to capture what they said). Click here to see other posts I’ve done featuring my top 20 quotes.

My favorite comment, although I liked a lot of them: from Anthony Bradley - "God works now for later (the church has too short of a timeline for restoration)"

Jeremy, I think my favorite quote has to be from Christine Caine - The Church must stop asking, “Who is the most marketable?” and start asking, “Who is marked by God?” What she says speaks volumes to the current church strategy and why we're struggling to actually show people Christ.
