“As college campuses go today so our culture goes tomorrow”

Synergize – is the habit of creative cooperation. It is teamwork, open-mindedness, and the adventure of finding new solutions to old problems. But it doesn’t just happen on its own.

Advice for someone in ministry:

  • Learn as much as you can about you. God made you uniquely. Take every personality test you can. Learn how God has wired you.
  • Be a learner! Learn! Learn! Learn!
  • Find the best people out there who lead well. Study them and learn from them.
  • The best spiritual leaders out there are the best followers of Christ. You have to be following Christ.
