Catalyst Quote-ables

I wasn’t able to attend Catalyst this year, so I have been reading different blogs to get an idea of what different people said. At Catlyst blog they put together some of their favorite quotes…thinking you might be in the same boat as me, I thought I would post them for you. Check out Catalyst Space here

We don’t need to fear power; we need to follow the example of Jesus. By doing so, we break the power of self-centeredness in our leadership. – Andy Stanley

The impact you have on the people you manage is probably greater than your influence with anyone you will volunteer to serve. When we manage somebody, we’re ministering to them. – Patrick Lencioni

Christianity is like the ark. It stinks sometimes, but if you get out, you’ll drown. – Shane Claiborne

When I get to heaven, I don’t want to watch Jesus spew my sheep out of his mouth. No, I’d rather have a select few behind me and be able to say, “Jesus, these are all I had left, but they are crazy in love with you. They sacrificed all of their lives to serve you.” – Francis Chan

Society can be divided into seven spheres of influence. If you want to engage a society and shape it, you must take part in every sphere. The church has made a mistake of being involved in only one aspect of society-the spiritual arena, while abandoning the others like politics, economics and business, education, media and entertainment, and sports. – Pastor Sunday Adelaja

If you want God’s blessing and anointing on your life and you want to be used in ways you never thought possible, then you have to get with his agenda. He hasn’t promised to bless your agenda. He has promised to bless his purposes. – Rick Warren

It’s embarrassing for me to tell you this, but I’ve done way too much ministry believing in God, but acting as if it was all up to me. – Craig Groeschel

If I could ask for one thing in your life, I would ask that you become a person who is intentional about adding value to the people around you. – John C. Maxwell

Learn to act your wage. The Bible teaches that a foolish man devours all he has. If you spend all of your income, you’re a fool. – Dave Ramsey

The human spirit cannot live in falsehood. We are designed to live in truth. Our souls long for the authentic and the real. We can give no greater gift than to help one another write an authentic human narrative for our lives. – Erwin McManus

The system you inherit, adopt, or create will eventually impact what your staff and volunteers do. Because we don’t understand the nature of systems, we blame our people. In reality, it’s not a people problem, it’s a systems problem. – Andy Stanley
