The Difference Between Castles & Kingdoms . . .

Our main purpose here on earth is to build the Kingdom.

Are we building castles to keep people out? Or building kingdoms to bring people in?

Be with people. “Go get some of them on you". We must love people like Jesus does, go all in, and get in the water with them!

Be Available . . .

If you want to lead people well, be available.

"People don’t follow vision, they follow availability."

How to Lead Effectively . . .

If you want to lead well keep your curiosity piqued and stay curious. We must always lead from a sense of constant anticipation.

The ultimate leader has a strong depth of scripture, is always curious, and keeps faith simple.

Be All In . . .

We must fail trying, and not watching. Try stuff that can only happen with Jesus at your back. Our job is to lead people home.

People don’t follow vision, they follow availability. If you want to lead people... be available. And that’s what I love about EDGE Mentoring & EDGE|X, they’re creating opportunities for leaders to just be available. Availability...access... those are things that will build the Kingdom.
