Catalyst West 2011: Andy Stanley

6

What if we stepped into all God created us to be?

  • “Often times a single act of courage, is the tipping point for something extraordinary.”
  • “You’re not a king and you never will be.” (sarcasm…one of the reasons Andy Stanley is a hero.)
  • “Have the courage to stay, when it would be easier to go.”
  • paraphrase: Circumstances may tell you to go. God may be saying to stay.
  • Andy told the story of how his dad overcame a horrible ministry situation and decided to stay.
  • “It would just be easier to go.”
  • “Have the courage to leave, when it would be easier to stay.”
  • Andy shared how he left his dad’s church. At the first baptism of North Point Church, Andy’s wife asked, “What if we had not left?”
  • “Have the courage to ask for help, when it would be easier to pretend that everything’s okay.”
  • “Secrets are dangerous.”
  • “Whatever it is you fear, you are compensating for it in your leadership.”
  • “What we ought to fear every day, is waking up somewhere and realizing we our outside of God’s will for our lives.”
  • “God, am I where you want me to be?”
  • “When this is behind you, what story do you want to tell?”
