“God put so many leaders in my life that just believed in me and saw something in me before I even saw it in myself. And I think some of the most helpful things those leaders did was invest time in me.” – @CatherineRenfro
“There’s a whole bunch of young women in the ministry that want to be discipled, need help and need a solid leader. And the harvest is plentiful and the laborers are few. And there’s a lot of ministries I could place if I had 100 women that wanted to join college ministry staffs, I could go place them all right now.” @PaulWorcester
“We truly believe God never stopped calling people to ministry leadership. For the most part, us as leaders stopped asking a whole generation to consider if God’s calling them the ministry leadership. So, I think now that we’re asking again, people are saying, ‘Yes, I believe that’s what God’s calling me to do.’” @shane_pruitt78
“I think I know the way the Lord is calling me. I think I know what he wants me to do, but I trust that no matter what, He’s just going to direct my steps, and He is going to open the doors along the way. And all I knew is serve where I could in the church.” @CatherineRenfro
“There’re opportunities out there that you can just take and explore those options. So, I encourage people to take a more of a broader faith-based risk—take a risk for the kingdom and step out in faith and see what opportunities the Lord provides.” @PaulWorcester
“What we need to do is to help them have very real, very deep spiritual disciplines because we’re going to be at our best when we serve and lead and teach out of the overflow of our own with Jesus.” @shane_pruitt78
