We were honored to hear from Pastor Charlotte Gambill, author, speaker, and lead pastor of LIFE Church in England who shared the importance of learning how to park.  Did you know that the majority of England citizens learn how to drive using a stick shift?

When Pastor Charlotte drove an automatic car for the first...

Perseverance in Ministry

Perseverance: Continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition Hebrews 12:1-3: "Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

How to Achieve an Infinite Mindset

  Impact Leadership Conference hosted over 3,300 Birmingham business leaders where they learned from a few of the nation's top leadership experts. One of the speakers, Simon Sinek, posed an interesting concept of viewing our work not as a finite game, but as an infinite one. A finite game has known players, fixed rules, and a set objective with an end. An infinite game has known, and unknown players, unfixed rules, and the aim is to perpetuate the game.

Many of our organizational leaders are playing with a finite mindset in a game that does not end. Their goal is...
