Catalyst: Brenda Salter McNeil

Some notes from Catalyst speaker Brenda Salter McNeil:

  • “Nobody wants to change the world more than God.”
  • When we really look at God, we can’t stay the same.
  • We can’t afford to just stay where we are in our comfort zones.  There has to be movement outward.
  • We all have a “Samaria” (see Acts 1:8), a place completely alien to us, another culture we don’t identify with.  It’s a place where the gospel really gets tested “for real for real.”
  • We often don’t actually do what Jesus said to do because it’s scary.
  • When we go to our Samaria, we’re forced to rely on God instead of on ourselves, on God’s power instead of our own.
  • “From the inception of the church it was intended to be a multi-ethnic movement.  It was always meant to be global.”
  • Believe that Jesus is who He says He is and will do what He said He would do.
  • Let God shake things up in my world and ministry and life.
