Top 20 Quotes from NACC (2016)

I spent this week at the 2016 North American Christian Convention in Anaheim California. This conference moves locations each year and is a great chance to connect with other churches who have come out of the same history as ours. The theme this year was called “A Better Story.”

Below I’ve selected twenty of my favorite quotes from the event. Each of these quotes is my best representation in writing of what the speakers said verbally or a summary thereof. Any errors in wording are my own. At the bottom of the page are some tweetable versions of them.
