We took 56 leaders from Grace Fellowship to Catalyst Dallas over the past two days and it was amazing. My goal is that we at least double this number next year. If you went to Catalyst with us, I’d really like to hear at least two of your takeaways or things God revealed to you.
I’ll not take time to fill in all the details, but the following are some key thoughts or ideas shared by various leaders that impacted me. These are not direct quotes, but are the things I wrote down while trying to take in the fire hydrant of blessing.
We are not here to have a moment, we are here to leave a legacy. JOHN MAXWELL

Follow the Rule of 5. Get a goal and then every day do 5 things that will help you accomplish that goal. Do these 5 things consistently every day. JOHN MAXWELL
You’re not tired because you’re doing too much, your tired because you’re doing the wrong things. CHRIS SEAY

What are you afraid of Child of God? Go BIG with your FAITH. It changes everything when you GO BIG with your FAITH. BOB GOFF
Do you want mild or wild. Too many Christians today want to take up their mattress instead of taking up their cross. PERRY NOBLE
