Leadership Summit 2011 | Erwin McManus – Chasing Daylight

Posted on August 12, 2011


“I think the role of leaders at this time in history is to be curators of human talent. They need to learn how to cultivate, how to identify, how to nurture, how to develop and unleash the God-given potential in every person.”

— live notes —

I’m convinced that one of our greatest challenges is by having a different relationship with the future.

Ecclesiastes 1. I have a deep seated feeling that Solomon was wrong. Especially this statement, “There is nothing new under the sun.”

Solomon was wrong.

Why do we keep waiting for someone else to create a better future?

We need to develop the creative capacity of every person and develop it to the fullest potential.

There’s a lot of people looking to have their spirits set free.

I think the Church needs to reclaim its place as the incubator of human creativity.

I have a sneaky suspicion that you at your best is not at all intimidating to God.

Whoever tells the best culture shapes the culture. Star Wars and Avatar are simply better stories than we are telling.

It’s not that hard to bring people to Jesus when you tell them a story that they find themselves in.

There is a future that is to be created, and if we nurture the talent inside of our communities, there will be people that will come and we won’t have room for them!
