In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins and Chandler Vannoy are joined by Doug Paul, author of Ready or Not. They discuss how what is happening today helps churches innovate and how it is a myth that we must be successful by the age of 30.
“The big idea around the book is that innovation is a skill set you can learn.”
“On a spiritual level, pastors were seeing that there is a big difference between church being programs that we run versus church being a group of people that God has trusted us to lead.”
“I wanted to dig into the history and the stories of the people of God to write something that would be able to change both people’s minds and hearts at the same time.”
“There is gold that COVID is giving us right now if we will do a little bit of extra work each week to think through, what have I learned this week from where we are that we can multiply into the future?”
“From 6:00-8:00 everyday is just with our family. There are no screens, we are just being together.”
“One of the common myths in our culture is that you need to have made your mark by the time you are 30.”
“What if the best ministry of your life happens when you are between the ages of 55 and 75 and everything that happens before 55 is just training?”
