Two Quotes Significantly Impacting Me Right Now

You can do things extraordinarily well, but unless you do the RIGHT things well, you still lose.

Do I really need to spend an inordinate amount of time formatting a document, building a website, or meeting excessively? What are the RIGHT things that cause us to win in student ministry? I don’t know if I know most of those answers but I believe relationships, recruiting and training leaders, and giving people ownership of ministry have to be at the top of the list.

What am I doing this week to reach one more student?

The reality about reaching students is that they’re not beating down the walls to get to us. Unless I am making strategic, intentional, and consistent strides to build relationships that lead to Gospel encounters, I am likely not going to reach more students.
