We just got home from a week in Dallas attending the ARC AllAccess12 conference at Gateway Church. What an incredible event. Nearly 3,000 people from 18 countries came to experience the power and presence of Jesus. We came away energized, encouraged, and empowered (sounds like a Baptist sermon). Here are ten observations:
I love the spirit of the Gateway house
I want to be a history maker (via Craig Groeschel)
There’s a life giving way to ask someone to move their car (via John Gray)
If church planting doesn’t work out, some of those guys could make a living in rodeo (only if they use mechanical bulls)
Dallas takes traffic to a HNL
There are 161 new ARC members & partners
It’s all about the one (via Dino Rizzo)
After hearing Priscilla Shirer preach, I’m thinking about giving up preaching & going back to giving talks (sorry Robert Morris
I don’t even want to think about Ed Young’s spanks
It’s an honor to get the privilege of serving this great movement – let’s change the world together!
