Yesterday I had the absolute pleasure of attending Newspring Church’s very first Leadership Conference. There was an abundance of inspiring speakers that were anointed, challenging, encouraging and engaging. These speakers shared openly about struggles they have encountered in their respective ministries and spoke truth and wisdom into the lives of other church and ministry leaders that were in attendance. I know personally God used these godly men to speak vision and challenge into my life and ministry (alongside my husband) and we return from this conference looking at certain areas with a different mindset. It is my hope that by sharing some highlights from each speaker (one blogpost at a time) those of you who did not get to go will also be encouraged and challenged by what God gave them to say.
Speaker 1: Perry Noble
Perry is the Senior Pastor of Newspring Church and my husband and I have been able to learn from him on countless occasions through visiting the church and reading his blog etc. Perry is an engaging speaker with a passion to communicate to thousands what God has laid on his heart.
“God must first do something great in you before He will do something great through you.”
“If you’re not willing to be uncomfortable, you will eventually be unfaithful.”
“If you’re always accessible to people, you can’t be accessible to God.”
“To do great things, you need to submit to God in the small.”
Luke 10v17-20: The seventy-two returned with joy and said, “Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name.” He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.”
