Speaker 7: Andy Stanley
Andy Stanley is the pastor of North Point Community Church in Georgia. He always speaks with wisdom from epxerience and is so solid in backing up what he says with scripture. Andy spoke on 4 Gravitational Pulls To Resist as church leaders.
4 Committments to make:
- To be more concerned with who we’re reaching than who we’re keeping
- To always err on the side of grace
- To remain focussed on our unique calling
- To remain open-handed – preserve vs. advance
“Big church is nothing, growing church is everything.”
“Jesus liked people who were nothing like Him – we need to be culturally relevant.”
“Don’t lose grace in your effort to sort things out and make them simple.”
“Let nothing get in the way and redefine the vision – be authoritative about it.”
Be excellent stewards of the church God has given you.
