Everything Rises and Falls on Leadership

I’ve got so much good feedback from the leaders night we had where we just took time to thank them.  Below is a very brief summary of my talk, a few notes I got back and some pictures from the night.

My talk

Our volunteer leaders are my heroes…and in the local church (to quote Bill Hybels) “Everything rises and falls on leadership.”  I’m grateful to our leaders specifically for their…

  • their time (they give a part of their life to this…and it’s not their spare time, it’s a decision to make this a priority in their lives!)

·         their buy-in(can you imagine over 100 different leaders all moving in the same direction to move Suncrest forward?)


·         their leadership (these people aren’t just “doing” or “serving”, they are leading others to do and serve)


The feedback




We really enjoyed last night’s meeting. The Karaoke (croaky), was funny, but best of all were the heartfelt words of gratitude you expressed.


I would imagine most of us volunteers are not looking for anyone to be grateful for what we do at the church, and I personally believe my assignments come from God.   Still, I was surprised at how much I appreciated your gratitude. It gave me the warm fuzzies, and made me feel loved and appreciated.


Thank You,



To our staff


…I just wanted to send a quick thank you before I attempt to finish my homework for the evening. You are all so amazing and I am so truly blessed to have each one of you in my life. Thank you, thank you, thank you for not only being who you are as individuals but for supporting me and others like me and giving us an outlet for our gifts as leaders here at Suncrest. I was lucky enough to be found by Suncrest instead of me finding it and that (God orchestrated) event in my life has changed every single thing in my life up to this point and will continue changing me, my family, and most importantly, my relationship with God for the rest of my life.


I had such a wonderful time at the leader’s edge meeting and can’t remember when I have laughed so hard (mostly at Greg of course). 🙂 Love the trophy and it is proudly being displayed in my kitchen so my husband can see how awesome his wife is – wait, maybe I should put it in the bathroom??


I love you all.
