ideas everywhere!

Do you ever have so many ideas, thoughts, observations and questions swirling in your mind that you have to shut down just to function?

Aaron and I have been sitting here at awaken08 listening and absorbing from Erwin McManus, Nancy Beach, Mark Batterson, Bill Hybels, Dr. Henry Cloud, Lee Strobel and so many more..

We are so grateful to Stillwater for making it possible to be here. I only hope we can find a way to share pieces of this with the staff and community. I’ll attempt to share the best highlights below…


Is your relationship with God restoring God’s wonder in you?
– Nancy Ortberg

We stop doing ministry out of creativity and do it out of memory. We stop creating and start imitating.

Our greatest moments in life happened when we were foolish. Faith is willing to look foolish.

What wakes me up in the morning is that there are ways of doing church that no one has thought of yet.
– Mark Batterson



We must find the courage to have difficult conversations. Let the elephant into the room. It’s easier to clean up after the elephant when you know where it is. – John Crosby & Kurt Vickman

There is much power in chaos. – David Arcos

more coming soon…
