“If you hire the wrong people to keep up with growth, the growth will eventually stop.”

“It’s more about leadership than about preachership when it comes to location pastors.”

“Excellence isn’t doing the best with what others have; excellence is doing the best with what you are given.”

“Doing the right things for a long time consistently will give the right results that you’re hoping to achieve.”

“Live in the calling that God’s put in your life and don’t try to achieve the dreams that God’s put in everyone else’s life.”
