“Jesus and caffeine: two things to start every day with.”
“I resonate most with paradigm books. I’m not a ‘lessons’ guy.”
“How do you have a lengthy discussion about something about which there are seven words mentioned in scripture?”
“I have an eleven year old daughter and when I argue with her I am arguing me. It’s not even fair to be mad at her.”
“I’ve been taking notice of high profile leaders who do very humble things.”
“Don’t get too big for your britches. Nothing you do is that special. You’re not better than anyone.”
“I have to learn over and over again the importance of detailed preparation.”
“Slow down and focus on the details.”
“The old phrase is ‘the devil is in the details’, but I would say excellence is in the details.”
“Wasted time with people isn’t wasted time.”

We’d like to thank our sponsor, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. SEBTS is always asking the question, “Where are you going?” They want to equip pastors, missionaries, theologians, scholars and more to obey the commands of Jesus to make disciples anywhere and everywhere God calls them to go. Wherever students are going, Southeastern can help them get there. Southeastern Seminary has a wide range of degrees at many levels and all M.Div. programs now have a stronger core curriculum to better equip students biblically, theologically and practically for their current and future ministries. In addition to a stronger core, the total number of hours required to complete an M.Div. has been reduced to 81-84. They even offer distance education options for those who cannot relocate to North Carolina to study.
