Global Leadership Summit 2012: Craig Groeschel

Craig GroeschelCraig Groeschel is the founder and Senior Pastor of LifeChurch.tv. Here are my highlights from his session at the Global Leadership Summit.

  • “When I turned 40, I began to ask myself, ‘Are the best years of ministry behind me?'”
  • “God values maturity. If you’re not dead, you’re not done.”
  • “Don’t just delegate tasks to the next generation. If you delegate tasks, you create followers. Instead delegate authority to create leaders.”
  • “Authenticity trumps cool every time.”
  • On entitlement with the younger generation: “Back when I was a kid, you actually had to win to get a trophy.”
  • “You’ll likely overestimate what you can do in the short run but underestimate what you can do in a lifetime of faithfulness.”
  • “Respect is earned, honor is given.”
  • “If you are not intentional, it will not happen.”
  • On learning from a mentor: “Don’t copy what they do. Learn how they think.”
  • To the younger generation: “You are the most cause-driven, mission-minded generation in recent history.”
  • “Let us stand together for the glory of Christ and make his name known.”
