“God trusts us with more responsibility when we’ve shown we are faithful in the little things.”
“You can create an oasis of excellence wherever you are. Whether you are in a student ministry, kids ministry, or in charge of cleaning out the closets, you can create an oasis of excellence”
“The best thing I can ever give anybody with my leadership is my personal holiness and a character of Christ.”
“Being a student of yourself is the best evaluation. Experience alone does not make somebody great, but it is evaluated experience that makes you a better leader.”

“Authority is not what makes a great leader. You can do anything from any position in the organization.”
