I’ve been to the Leadership Summit for a number of years now, but this was the first year we’ve ever hosted it at Abundant Life Church. Together with business and church leaders in our community, we spent the last two days growing together and practicing being teachable.
Below I’ve selected twenty of my favorite quotes from the event. Each of these quotes is my best representation in writing of what they said verbally or a summary thereof. Any errors in wording are my own. These are in order of appearance at the conference, not in rank.
