The Dayspring staff spent yesterday in Carrolton at the “Catalyst One Day” event. Andy Stanley and Craig Groeshel had some great thoughts and information to share. I appreciate their willingness to share out of their own experiences, even when they are different from one another. Each of them had strategies and thoughts on leadership that at times differed, but both are working. There is no one right way; there is no one right strategy for the church, but multiple ways to advance the Kingdom of God through the local church.
The idea that I hung onto the most yesterday did not even come from one of the speakers, but from the manual. It was a quote from Andy Grove’s book Only the Paranoid Survive and read, “If we got kicked out and the board brought in a new CEO, what would he or she do? Why shouldn’t we walk out the door, come back in, and do it ourselves?” Hmmm….
