Here are a few of the books we mentioned in this episode:


“If you are a leader, you have to emulate what you expect your people to do.”

“Discipleship has to be the ministry of your church, not the ministry in your church.”

“So, the natural question is, ‘How do you lose seven million people?’”

“Could it be that we have showed people what they’re saved from, (but) we haven’t spent the time showing people what they’re saved for?”

“Baptism is not the finish line. It’s the starting line.”

“Jesus spoke to the crowds… but it’s on few occasions.”

“I selected one or two guys, who are not the normal guys I would meet with… Guess who came to my defense? The guys I invested in.”

“You invest in a few key people in your church as a pastor, and you will see a ripple effect throughout congregation.”

“I wrote my life story book to bring people into the mind of a drug addict…”

“Don’t be discouraged, because every true movement of God is always a mustard seed movement.”

“When you’re down to nothing, God is up to something.”
