So we had a staff retreat for Cross Church San Diego this weekend. We had a great speaker/consultant who was perfect for what we needed at this time. His name is John Cope and he’s pastor at a church out in Philadelphia. He shared so many important and fascinating things. There’s no way that I can remember all of the pithy sayings that He shared. I actually took notes on another computer so I will just start the list of pithy sayings and then I’ll add the sayings – as I reread my notes.
– The organization will take on the personality of the leader in 18 months.
– The DNA of the organization drives all of the decisions on programming – that we make.
– Everything that you do has to be building the net or building the potential net – The net being an metaphor for the people in your tribe.
More when I get my other computer…..
