Practical Stuff for Church Leaders

The Next Step

Some know Louie Giglio as the founder of Passion Conferences, others as an author of this book or this one, and some as a pastor of Passion City Church in Atlanta. He closes the 2014 Global Leadership Summit with some good thoughts...

  • A lot of times as a leader I don't feel like I know what I'm doing.
  • You don't have to know everything about how to get to the top of the mountain in front of you in order to take the next step.
  • Every leader knows that life is short. This is what gives us the urgency to lead people who don't have that urgency.
  • You don't have to figure out the rest of your life--you just have to take your next step.
  • When it looks like everything is going wrong, embrace the darkness. God is preparing you for a greater role in his unfolding story.
  • Going through tough times makes us humble. Humility isn't a character trait that we develop--it is a byproduct of being with Jesus.
