Attended the Exponential 2010 Church Planting Conference via the Webcast of it from Orlando FL, heard a lot of good things from some great pastors I follow like Francis Chan, Matt Chandler, Charles Lee, Ed Stetzer .
Efrem Smith brought down the house, he was amazing, first time I heard him speak, will not be the last time.
Thought I’d post my notes from the speakers.
Here are some of my favorite quotes from today that I tweeted out to my followers:
- “No matter how small your church is you’re not too small to be a vehicle of compassion, mercy and justice to ur community.”
- You must risk failure to become a stake holder in the outcome. Alan Hirsch
- “Go be a Star Trek church planter….. go where no man has gone before” Efrem Smith
- You can’t love Jesus and ignore or marginalize his Bride. @edstetzer
- People don’t need to know more to be obedient – they need to be obedient to know more. – @Neil_Cole
- We need a Kingdom-shaped view of the church, not a church-shaped view of the Kingdom ~ Reggie McNeal
- Prayer is rebellion against the status quo. “Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven,”
- Church marketing is a poor substitute for mission/ the Holy Spirit
- Plant THE church, not A church. THE church is NOT a destination. Reggie McNeal #exponential
- We need to be about Kingdom multiplication (more…)
