I was expecting something good again this year but instead I was simply blown away by the giftedness of the teaching and the examples of Godly leadership exhibited by the "faculty." The teachings were anointed as I found myself being profoundly challenged to ask God to "bring it on!" The bar was set high at this conference and I pray that I will seek to make it over that bar and become an even better leader, seeking to do the impossible. With God, the impossible becomes the possible.
I was also moved to see how many other leaders were gathered for this summit. We were part of group connected by satellite with others around the country and around the globe. Knowing that God is moving in His church in such a profound way is inspiring.
We were represented by many of our leaders from COTHA and I know I wasn't the only one inspired. My prayer is that God will take us deeper this year as we seek to become a "Great Church"... or as someone said at our leadership luncheon this past Sunday, a "Phenomenal Church!"
