The Chronicles of The Best They Ever Had

Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved. -Acts 2:43-47

The Rest of my notes from Catalyst

Louie Giglio Session 2

Are you going to live and how are you going to live?
With one life its more important to live than lead
Let God lead, I’m with him
You are prized by majesty, by a God who has given supremely to mer
Leading is secondary to living
Worship is revelation and response
All of me for all of you
Worship is simple, its me in God’s hands.
We may be infatuated with the experience of worship
In worship we are to be consumed not consumers

Consumer ask whats in it for me , style, enjoyable, feels good segmented thing, use up the songs, trendy downloading, being happy, about me

Consumee is what can I give, surrender, costly and always involves sacrafice, what God requires, hurts good all of life things God uses up the singer, using Gods will, what to give more, eternity , where your bowing down, about bringing happiness to God, me being all about God

Living and leading for what never passes away
Nothing can stop God from putting us in his plan
What kind of worshiper are you

Donald Miller Session 3

1925 evolution vs. creationism in school education
• Leading to the growth of Christian schools, universities, and business
• Are the people around you challenging you or are they there to validate your opinion
• You may be the main character in your movie but you movie isn’t the feature film, God is the feature. o add value you to people
Paradigm shifts
They are in our way. Scripture tells us to treat them better then ourselves

Christianity means a million things to a million people the term is deluded, and the definition is destroyed.

John C. Maxwell, Session 4

Phases of Leadership
• 1. I want to make difference.
• 2. With people who want to make a difference
• 3. Doing something that makes a difference
• 4. At a time when it makes a difference

Has to a have a passion in making a difference in the lives of others.
High morale is when a person can say what I am doing is making a difference
Low morale is a person who thinks that they are making no difference at all.

Noah can say I made a difference, for all of mankind.
Nehemiah made a difference, built the wall. He became a team builder, he know nothing about construction. Came to Jerusalem with broken people, broken walls. He rebuilt the walls first, so that the homes could be rebuilt safely and the people would be rebuilt by the wokr

If you don’t like why don’t you do something about. Margaret Maxwell

1980s keyword was management
1990s management to leadership
2000 leadership to team leadership
developing a team is important, fill in skill holes.

one is to small a number to achieve greatness!!

John hopes God will gives a niche, our calling our priority, our sweet spot

never try to explain God before you obey God

Leader must have an understanding of the time they live in, and the time they have.

its what you do after you know it all that counts john wooden

Be ready today

Today Matters
• We overexaggerate yesterday
• And we overestimate tomorrow
• And we underestimate today

Successful people make important decisions early in life and then manage them the rest of your life. You cannot manage a decision you haven’t made

the card says, JUST FOR TODAY
I will choose and display the right attitudes

Erwin McManus Session 5
Read Joel
The blind man is aware of what is going on around him, hes blind not deaf.
How would it be if you were the blind guy

Go to the pool, but no help to get there, but sent by God. Imagine yourself as the blind man, some things God does for us, some things we must do for ourselves.

Uniqueness: churches are standardized, standardized rarely works, Jesus wasn’t standard
People don’t want to be the same, no desire to be a Christian clone

Move from utility to creativity, it doesn’t need to work the way it used, think outside the octagon but don’t write off the box


Everyone has a purpose in your life

People don’t care if everyone is as bad, as long as everyone is equally as bad as them.

The church doesn’t look like a movement of dreamers and visionairies

Diversity: moves from homogeny to diversity, churches reach people like us rather people

Make people the highest value. Its about them.
Christianity has become the most power self help company on the planet.
No longer spiritual,
We’re losing because we’re becoming to spiritual,
No connection to everyone else.

The Christian Faith grew thanks to Roman Government, why can’t explode through near world wide freedom

Love can’t be forgotten.

I’m afraid of things I don’t understand.

Move from pragmatism to mysticism
Shift from conviction to compassion:
