Sharable Quotes (#NewChurches):

We want to see the “sheep trade market” close down and see more people converted unto Christ. — Jeff Medders

Guilt is never something we want to encourage as a part of the Christian life. There is conviction, and that comes from the Spirit and propels us forward. — Jeff Medders

We are dealing with things of eternity. We’re not just rehearsing facts. When we evangelize, we are dealing with matters of light and darkness, heaven and hell, eternity and forgiveness. It should create a sense of urgency, dependency, prayer, and zeal that we’re dealing with people’s souls. — Jeff Medders

We have to be able to have a plan in place to see people walk from spiritual infancy to spiritual maturity. We have to assume that because the Great Commission is about making disciples—not evangelizing—but it’s making disciples through the process of sanctification. — Doug Logan

The gospel is for the lost and the found. — Doug Logan
