Thought I'd share some of the top, most meaningful advice that I've received through the years about Church Planting:
1.) The surest way to fail is by trying to please everyone.
2.) Sometimes you have to let people that you love.... leave.
3.) The church is not a destination, but instead more like an airport that gets people from one place to another. (Alan Hirsch)
4.) Don't put people in leadership positions too quickly. (Everyone)
5.) Don't try to be like other churches or other pastors; be who God made YOU!
6.) The people who are suppose to stay will stay. (Mary Molino)
7.) Don't pull the trigger slowly. (Tony Liston)
8.) It seems people don't necesssarily remember what they are told of God's love, but they never forget what they have experienced of God's love. (Steve Sjogren)
9.) Just be a Shepherd and feed my sheep. (God)
10.) Be a purpose driven church (Rick Warren)
11.) What makes a leader a leader is leaders don't quit.
12.) Cry me a river, build me a bridge and get over it. (Glen Sartain)
13.) One wolf can take down a church of 200 people.
14.) Women can too preach! (Dan Southerland)
15.) Never forget who you work for! (Me)
