The Nines

There was a free online conference today called the Nines. A bunch of influential church leaders are given only 9 minutes to communicate a leadership lesson. Here ares some ideas that stood out to me:

“The outcomes of ministry don’t belong to us, they belong to God. Our identity comes from being a child of God.” Skye Jethani

“The Church doesn’t have a mission, the mission has a Church.” Reggie McNeal

“When you delegate tasks, you create followers. When you delegate authority, you create leaders.” Craig Groeschel

“Innovation grows out of desperation. Big ideas grow out of big failures.” Greg Surrat

“We’ve shrunk Jesus to the size where he can save our souls, but not where He can change the world.” Jenni Catron

“You will only grow to the threshold of your pain. View pain as a teacher. Don’t drug it. Don’t have leadership leprosy.” Sam Chand

“In the church, tradition should never get in the way of mission, or it is sin.” Dan Kimball

“Success by default: be the last person standing. God will use that.” Jud Wilhite

“The Gospel is not an evacuation plan, it is a transformation plan.” Brian McLaren

“We look at people like a mission field and not a community.” Bob Roberts

The greatest church you pastor is the one you call home.” Brad Bell

“Disciples are handcrafted, not mass produced.” John Ortberg

What people are longing for is access to our own hearts, stories and journey. Do I have a faith journey worth sharing about?” Rick McKinley
