Today marks the unofficial start of our Every Nation Campus Conference dubbed as “Ignite.“ We had 3 amazing speakers starting with Pastor Wayne Alcorn from Hope Centre Australia followed by Pastor Jeff Dacumos from Victory Metro East and Pastor Ferdie Cabiling of Victory Ortigas.
Here are my 10 take aways from today’s sessions:
1. Before change happens around you, it first has to happen in you. – Wayne Alcorn
2. Self awareness is a leadership gift. When we know who we are, we are able to lead from a place of security. – Wayne Alcorn
3. If you were charged due to being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you? – Wayne Alcorn
4. When you understand the “why”, every other “what” makes sense. – Wayne Alcorn
5. Why do preachers want to sing and singers want to preach? Just be comfortable with who God made you to be. – Wayne Alcorn
6. Horses reproduce horses. Ducks reproduce ducks. Leaders reproduce leaders. – Wayne Alcorn
7. Be the leader you want to reproduce. What you are is what you’ll reproduce. – Wayne Alcorn
8. Pastor Jeff Dacumos told a powerful story on discipleship and leadership development. Michaelangelo, when asked about he is able to work on sculpting his famous work, “David”. How was he able to see a sculpture out of a plain old big rock. His answer?
“I just take out the parts that don’t look like David.”
9. Pastor Ferdie Cabiling was his usual fiery sermonator that he is.
God uses different personality types to reach people for Christ
But whatever personality you have, God can use you to tell the greatest story ever told.
10. Sharing your faith doesn’t have to be complicated. Just share how Jesus changed your life. – Ferdie Cabiling
