Sharable Quotes (#NewChurches):

You will either plan to advance the key things in the life of the church or someone else is going to plan those things for you. @Colby Garman

Proverbs 16:9 says “A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.” @clintjclifton

A lot of what the church needs to know is not necessarily going to come from the pastor. It’s going to come from the team of gifted people God has assembled to be the foundation for the church. – Dave Proffitt

I think of times in our ministry where a person had an idea that I, in a million lifetimes, never would have come up with. @clintjclifton

I want to plan to accomplish, but I also want to be prepared to pivot where I see God working. @Colby Garman

Often we have no idea what God’s doing. Our work is worship. We offer it to God because we love Him and He does with it what He sees fit. @clintjclifton

You’ve got to commit to prayer and to evangelism. You’ve got to connect with people. You’ve got to a servant leader. We need to train a disciple and we need to mentor. We need a coach and we need to recruit, recruit, recruit. We need to apprentice and become apprenticed. – Dave Proffitt
